3 stars To sound strange, is not enough - maybe that's the lesson Gentle Giant learned after their debut. This is the band's second release and to those, who know the first and third, there's not much more to say. Imagine a mixture of the best of "Gentle Giant" and the worst of "Three Friends" und you get an idea what "Acquiring the Taste" is like. The songwriting is better than on the first album but to me the music still sounds as "to be devoloped", so I wouldn't call this one of the "real" Gentle Giant dics. You can listen to the song "Wreck" on the Gentle Giant page pf porgarchives. In my taste "Pentagruel's Nativity", "The House The Street The Room" and "The Plain Truth" are better than that song. The album also has a very strange track, called "Edge of Twilight" that sounds to weird for my (and I guess, some other's) ears.
