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.
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.
