4 stars By this time, Giant had already released four albums in the short space of two years. Octopus is one of the stronger ones. Phil Shulman at this point had been replaced by the lunatic John Weathers.(Look at this guys expressions live! Jeez!)

Most songs are short, but pack a big punch when they have your attention. Multi-instrumentalists Kerry Minnear and Ray Shulman showcase their talents greatly on this album, electric violin, cello, recorders galore.

Only Giant Could Moment: Knots. Superb harmonizing of vocals and crashing instrumentation.

OGTL | 4/5 |
