Highly Strung is a music singles/eps/fan club/promo recording by VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR (Eclectic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 2011 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Only for completionists (14%).

When, in 2005, Van Der Graaf Generator released its first album in over 25 years, the reunited group proved it was not only possible to go back, but that it could be done without sacrificing forward-thinking modernity. Inconsistent, perhaps, but Present (Charisma/Virgin) demonstrated, with "Every Bloody Emperor," a group still capable of soaring majesty and nightmare-inducing maelstroms. A Grounding in Numbers possesses everything that made Van Der Graaf Generator great back in the day, while its avoidance of so many of classic prog's trappings mean it remains relevant, meaningful and, most of all, vital. Personnel: Peter Hammill: vocals, piano, guitar; Hugh Banton: organ, keyboards; Guy Evans: drums.

I’m highly strung, I’m stressed as hell, I bite my tongue, I hold my breath as well. time to depressurise, my nerves are shot to hell. I’m highly strung, panic attack, can’t do this one, can’t go on with the act. I’m frozen on the topmost rung, I can’t go on, I’m just too highly strung
