Pawn Hearts songs Product Information
Pawn Hearts album for sale by Van Der Graaf Generator was released Jun 14, 2005 on the EMI Music Distribution label. Van Der Graaf Generator's third album, Pawn Hearts was also its second most popular; at one time this record was a major King Crimson cult item due to the presence of Robert Fripp on guitar, but Pawn Hearts has more to offer than that. The opening track, "Lemmings," calls to mind early Gentle Giant, with its eerie vocal passages (including harmonies) set up against extended sax, keyboard, and guitar-driven instrumental passages, and also with its weird keyboard and percussion interlude, though this band is also much more contemporary in its focus than Gentle Giant. Pawn Hearts CD music contains a single disc with 8 songs. ...See Full Description

This is with no doubt one of the 70s prog rock masterpiece. The remastered version sounds like heaven and I am pretty sure that this is one of the best remastered CDs that I've ever heard.

||I'm with Herb - it's a masterpiece made even better!|
Jeff is certainly entitled to his opinion, but I have to wonder if we are listening to the same remaster... I am ecstatic about the sound on mine! In my 35+ years of musical listening, collecting and playing, Pawn Hearts has been the only album, out of many thousands that I've owned & heard, that I've ever called my favorite - to me, it's the finest example of what rock (and music, for that matter) can be.

||Matter of Opinion|
First and foremost, the orginal Charisma/Buddah vinyl pressing of this album was a classic example of how bad cheap pressings could be.

||A Masterpiece Ruined|
I purchased the new remaster of _Pawn Hearts_ for $22.98 + tax at a local store here in San Francisco. I'd like to describe this "remastering" effort speaking from my perspective as a long time fan of VDGG and Peter Hammill.

||Horn Parts By Another Name|
"Pawn Hearts" is a massive exploration into existential themes hardly ever probed into in great detail at the time. It seems a shame that "Pawn Hearts" was successful mainly in Italy... where it went to number one... but was ignored for the most part elsewhere.
