4 stars This is the latest album that i bought. These albums were pretty difficult to get 30 years ago and it is still a challenge to find them.

To like this album, you have to listen to it many times in order to get used to it. It is some of their earlier work and it seems that the band was still looking for the kind of music they were going to play, so the music is pretty weird on this one. Pantagruel's nativity and Wreck are perhaps the most interesting tracks on the album, but still, we are really far from other albums like "Octopus" or "In a glass house".

For any new gentle giant fan, it's worth to give it a shot.
