4.5 superbdannyboy89 | April 8th 13

This is a fantastic album. I slightly prefer Octopus, but this one comes pretty close. Great old-school prog.

All the weird time signatures and strange synths in the world won't cure a lack of good melodies. What a boring fucking album. It gives me a headache every time I listen to it.

5.0 classicJethro | February 14th 11

Masterpiece!! This is where I've got into this unique band who managed to do both such complex, adventurous and melodic music, flirting with medieval to a great effect. Each musician is multi-instrumentalist, and some of them are classically trained. Music has frequent changes in tempo, frequent use of syncopation, non-standard time-signatures, multi-part vocal harmonies etc etc...The playing of drummer John Weathers' brings a solid rock feel to their dissonant, eventful music. Here is the best way to go to: 'In a Glass House', 'Playing the Fool'(live), 'Acquiring The Taste', 'Free Hand' and 'Octopus'. Gentle Giant are an acquired taste. Each new listens will pay off.

True classic of progressive rock. Gentle Giant's best LP and essential for every progster out there.
The Runaway 5/5, An inmate's Lullaby 4.5/5, Way of Life 4.5/5, Experience 5/5, A Reunion 4.5/5, In a Glass House 5/5.
Overall 5!
