3 stars This was my fist experiance of Gentle Giant and I found it quite a dissapointment. Half the time this album seems to be trying to emulate Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick (in particular the Runaway). Experiance to me just sounds like a song of the times. Whwn GG are not imitating JT they are not that bad; Way of Life, Reunion and In a Glass House are the stronger tracks as a result. This album is more just the music of the times, the songs are ok but nothing incredible, the band couldn't compose something powerful like Firth of Fifth or And You and I. An ok album that isn't really essential, Octopus and Freehand are better, but I get the general feeling that Gentle Giant is second tier prog and there are better acts out there that are more deserving to be in the top hundred than GG. If you are looking for other prog outside of Yes and Genesis, I recommend Gryphon's Red Queen to Gryphon three,Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells or Tangerine Dream's Phaedra but don't bother too much with this album unless you see it on discount or second hand.
