5 stars When Octopus was released here in Quebec, In a glass house was released in England and i was really surprised when i learned that the album wasn't released here until the beginning of the 80s. I think that it's a real shame knowing that In a glass house easily became one of their greatest work. I think it is sad to say that the band got better when Phil Shulman left and maybe this album wouldn't have been that good if he stayed. <

The medieval "Experience" and the powerhouse "In a glass house" are some of the best tracks on this album. When you listen to the glass shattetering at the beginning of "The runaway", it is enough to give you goose bumps. "An inmates lullaby" is really great and and sometimes disturbing ( just read the lyrics if you have the chance ). The addition of the medley of "The runaway/Experience" is great for the remaster or to any die-hard fans.

Check it out, it's the best.
