What's your favortie part?
I like the whole thing but particularly The Clot Thickens and Presence of the Night/Kosmos Tours and Custard's Last Stand, the ending is great as well

Tough one. I like the piece as a whole.

but my soft spot is for the train effect in the middle of Pictures/Lighthouse part; so I voted for it. (it will probably remain the only vote anyway Big smile!!)

I watched them playing it on youtube last night. Absolutely horrible.

Where's the "none of them" button?

I listen to it in one piece, and love every part equally much.

I find the opening "Still waiting for my saviour..." to be particularly haunting. Cool

I must say I've only ever played the whole song. I have absolutely no idea which bit is which.

    I usually don't like it when people add more options than is necessary, its a straightfoward poll and doesn't require extra options.

I think the last section, Land's End/We Go Now is really legendary and chilling.

I have to say Eyewitness, it sets the mood perfectly and is perfectly haunting.

as a prog specialist, you surprised me.
 
Well, not everyone has to love VdGG, but it's probably because of VdGG's weakness on stage. They don't always kick *ss live. You should try the studio version (present both on Pawn Hearts album and The Box compilation in its entirety)

Hard to choose one, but it's a tie between "The Clot Thickens", "Kosmos Tours" and "Eyewithness"

Disagree completely. VDGG are as good live as anyone - and have always been. Their tour last year was fine.
 
Didn't realise there were any different `bits' to POLK
I was there but not aware
