UK, 1970, progressive rock

Van der Graaf GeneratorThe Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other: The vocalist sounds a lot like Bowie in spots, adding, in my mind, a touch of the artistic and eccentric to the heaviness of this prog rock album, especially in the exploration of witchcraft in the Middle Ages. These kinds of dark themes proceed through the end of the album, with the apocalyptic scenario of a flood that wipes out civilization.

One thought on “

  1. I like that prog rock is not afraid to explore themes that would be dismissed either as cheesy or as too sprawling and/or heavy for an album to tackle.
