Van der Graaf Generator (UK) - H to He Who Am the Only One (1970)

We've talked about this title pretty much already, but nevertherless, I'd like to tell some more even I've already told it in another thread, and it's not about the title itself but about how I've experienced the music in relation to the lyrics:

The first times I heard this album, it didn't tell me very much, almost boring. But I got the idea to look at the lyrics, which appeared very suprisingly to be, in my subjective opinion, the best lyrics I've ever seen - very poetic and emotional, and yet, easy to understand and thus very informative and profound.
And then, the whole album became a very otherwise experience, as I found the music fit so well with the lyrics, and after some more listnings, this album simply became a "mind blowing" and so great experience.
It was something so wonderful new for me because it never happened to me before - at least not so intense at all.

quality above quantity, and PopcoRn almost beyond

Jesu's "Eevryday I Get Closer to the Light from Which I Came" seems a great title.

Post rock genre in general has elaborated taste to some fairly good poetic images in titles (like "Millions Now Living Will Never Die" by Tortoise)
...and now the choice is juggling 9 or dropping ten...

I bought "The Oblivion Particle" by Spocks Beard on the strength of its title. Short but strong. I also liked the title for Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep. The cover for "Brief Nocturnes..." is also very evocative to me. 

For some reason I seem to be drawn to album and song titles with "dream" in them.
