The sad fact about box sets is that there's always a fan out there who thinks they could have compiled a better one. An even sadder fact is that they're often correct, and the very notion of anthologizing Van Der Graaf Generator was a fraught one for that very reason. More, perhaps, than any other band of the early-'70s prog era, VDGG polarized their fans as much as the band's blatantly inhospitable sound outraged outsiders. They cut just eight studio albums, and all eight possess a wholly different character, all the more so since the band actually broke up midway through.
Present is the ninth studio album by British progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator, released in 2005. It was the band's first studio album since The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome in 1977, and the first with the 'classic' line-up since World Record in 1976. The Charisma Records label was reactivated for its release, as well as a reissue series of Van der Graaf Generator's back catalog and Peter Hammill's solo releases from 1972-86.

Van der graaf generator. By the way van deer Graff generator where a competent live unit. Listen to the live version of squid octopus on the revamped he to h. orld record is pretty played out, but was better live. However Pawn Hearts is arms and legs the most important record in their catalogue. Lemmings is so awesome you have to turn it up and feel the insomniac tension, Man-erg is wonderful with its superb words and monster riffling section. An interesting early album, but one that is really only necessary to hardcore VDGG fans or those interested in simply collecting their entire catelogue. Put it this way: the album is entirely listenable, sometimes quite catchy, but not particularly memorable in any way and not even one of the songs is very unique.
