4.0 excellentTheHung89 | June 24th 16

Really have to be in the mood for this odd album. A variety of time signatures and song structures makes for a
challenging listen. Some of the instrumental moments on this album are what really shine.

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 classicJethro42 | 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.

5.0 classicMaz | December 2nd 07

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!
