4 stars Gentle Giant is one of the most amazing bands I've ever heard. Every men involved in this musical project is a musical genius! Everyone sings, writes and plays more than one common instrument. I have to admit that this record is absolutely awesome, although the band had not found their true identity yet. My favorite songs are "Giant" " Nothing At All" and "The Queen". Every prog lover should own this record and know it well, since it has a great complexity and skill levels, something that many other bands (we must admit it) can't do.

Pros: +Amazing Songs +Great Vocals +Memorable artwork +Perfectly executed

Cons: +A little unstable

Verdict: Great album, must-have for pure prog fans, but not for casual or dummy fans. I have to add that, of course, the best will come in later albums.

If you like it, look forward to Acquiring The Taste, all the way to Free Hand, all of the albums are outstanding.

4 stars - An excellent addition without a doubt.
