2 stars Giant Fun.

This has immediate sentimental value for any fan of GG. The best part is that theirs loads of it, so it's a minefield just to get through it all. Hearing a band in the studio with the creative process in full swing is really exciting, especially if you are a musician and understand the experience of it all.

The band is quite professional, but they obviously had fun, and enjoyed putting this compilation as can be noticed by the tongue in cheek humor in several of the out takes. It's also interesting from a fan standpoint to see how much some of the songs changed and evolved to their final format. It becomes clear fairly quickly how strong a grasp these guys have on musical concepts, enough to be baffling, even after knowing a great deal of their discography.

A fun little CD to have, but in all honesty I wouldn't touch it unless I was an avid fan of the band. If you're looking to experience some great GG material, I'd suggest their early to mid-70's material (the bulk of their work) and come to this CD once you are familiar with their discography.
