Pawn Hearts proved to be quite a ground breaking album amidst the preceding conceptual H to He Who am the Only One. That’s not to say that HTHWATOO wasn’t a stellar album in itself but t/vocalist Peter Hammill showed a more mature, yet explorative outlook on his songwriting and extraordinary vocal approach with what we have here. Hammill’s sociable personality rings forth in a kind of love it or hate it type of fashion

Pawn Hearts - очень вдохновенная работа. Поражает изобретательность музыкантов, ставших настоящими виртуозами. А проект под названием Van Der Graaf Generator, как позже выяснилось, был "заморожен" лишь до 1975 года. Рецензии пользователей.
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 is progressive rock the way the East Germans played it. Not even the West Germans really managed such truly minging combinations of Brecht and primal scream therapy. Van Der Graaf Generator were punks in a prog-rock style1. They had a visionary leader who wrote umpteen songs per week and released new LPs without even telling his record company. But Hammill had no idea when he was good or bad, and the first few releases were patchy dry runs for this remarkable statement called PAWN HEARTS. Indeed, the big surprise about Van Der Graaf is not that they were shit when they failed to come up with the goods.
