4 stars VDGG is one of the most important bands ever in progressive rock, they are so unique that not even today a band manage to create the turbulent atmosphere of their music. The second release of the band from 1970 named The least we can do is wave to each other is a fairly better album then their debut a year prior. The famous Charisma label was born in that year 1970 and the band sign with them, make them famous over the years, maybe not as strong as another giant of progressive rock music - Genesis. So , with this album VDGG took the music to another level, both musicaly and lyricaly. The music is very odd, in parts dark , but yet very complex for that times, progressive all the way with some fantastic lyrics made by one of the best musicians ever - Peter Hammill. The highlight is for me, as for many the turbulent Refugees, absolute fantastic and beyond words can discribe what this piece offer to the listner - magic. Another track that defines the bands atmosphere and musical adventures for the next 6 years is the opening track Darkness. So, overall an excellent second album, but yet so underrated in comparation with other legenday albums. Among their best, maybe not as good as the next ones, but still an excellent addition to anyones collection. 4 stars easy from here the journey begun for them, showing that they were and are among the best in this bussines.
