Amon Düül II for me. I like VdGG. Hammill's vocals don't bother me as they do some others, and I far more dislike the operatic stuff from ADII. However, who cares about vocals anyway. VdGG's instrumental side is too sparse. I like the droning, but it drones on far to long. More seems to be happening with ADII, and with a heavy dose of improvisation.

*spits beer on monitor*

yeah right...  yes I prefer having a German women's tongue in my ear.. especially one whispering how she is going to teach me a new religion..in heavily accented English ... rarther than having some pseudo intellecual upper class drivel driving icepicks into my ears.


ADII by millions of light years...   remember it is prog/progressive ROCK!!!!!  and ADII rocks harder than VDGG could ever dream of doing.. and were far more creativite.. original (Doors knock off that VDGG was) and did I say..   they rock and kick all kinds of ass.

VDGG is more significant for me. But I like the early ADII too. Both of them are the magical bands.
