Exact repro reissue, originally released in 1969. A less bloated affair due in part to the fact that this was initially meant to be Peter Hammill's solo debut -- and some of the songs anticipate his later solo work. "Overall, The Aerosol Grey Machine is very much of its time, from the title track's Bonzo-esque jingle to 'Aquarian,' an anthemic, '60s zeitgeist sing-along: 'We are riding on rainbows and happy today / Now we move to the sun in every direction / We are cloaked in veils of mystic protection / Joking a lot, smoking or not / Floating our yacht off to freedom / Voting to be Aquarian!' Peace and love notwithstanding, there are strong portents of the direction Van der Graaf Generator would take." -- Trouser Press
