4.0 excellentTheIntruder | August 28th 15

I am a big Gentle Giant fan. Gentle Giant was one of the pioneer bands of the progressive rock music and is also one of their bigger and best representative groups. Gentle Giant is an excellent debut album. It's probably their less complex musical work and it is for sure their most hard and heavy rock album. We must not forget that this is an album of 1970 and therefore one of the first progressive rock albums in the history. However, this album already have some of the main characteristics of their future music like the avant-garde and experimentalism, the fusion of rock, blues and jazz, the influences of the renaissance and medieval music and the prolific use of the multi-musical instruments.

The beginning of one of the best, most distinctive and consistent progressive rock groups ever.

4.0 excellentJethro | May 13th 09

Pretty good debut album. Less consistent than 'Acquiring The Taste' but it rawks. Highlights; The first 3 ones and 'Nothing at All' with its drum solo emerging in the middle of a classical piano ride that soon turns to a more jazzy feel. As Gentle Giant does so well.The band is essential for those who are fond of adventurous and complex electic prog rock. Also, the band offers some of the most beautiful melodies, and incomparable multi-part vocal harmonies and dissonant musical counterpoint.

4.0 excellentArchibald C. Burke | March 26th 09

A pretty refreshing progressive unit, Gentle Giants self-titled debut should probably be listened to a few times before judgement starts to get passed on it. It definitely helps to let this one soak in, as there is a lot hidden amongst the music waiting to be discovered with each listen.
