I'm going with Godbluff.  Reminds me the most of Hammill's solo stuff, which I generally prefer to VdGG.

I'm currently extremely into Pawn Hearts, I listen to the album at least once per day (listening to it right now actually... Lemmings just ended). Anyway, I'm going to save my vote for later as I really only have given H to He, Pawn Hearts and Godbluff decent chances, I have much yet to explore and it will take time. I guess this poll will be around for a while though :D

Admittedly I have come to love Pawn Hearts recently but I still have to give it to Still Life.

Maybe the best musical experience ever.

Godbluff.
I am going to purchase their last three 70s albums soon.
And I already have in mind to listen to Pawn Hearts tomorrow; haven't done so in a while.

I have never liked Pawn Hearts.
Interesting. Two quite similar albums, and the first one you like and the second one you dislike.Confused


They may have a similar sound at times, but the compositions of Pawn Hearts are overall too dissonant and disorderly.  There's too much shrieking and howling.
And that's actually one of basic Eclectic characteristics.Wink

There are no "Eclectic characteristics". "Eclectic", by definition, can include anything and everything.

Still Life, the perfect balance between the crazy Pawn Hearts VDGG and the more cohesiveness of the later albums and Hammill solo career
