4 stars aquiring the taste is a dark album. The night is a reoccuring theme, death, the birth of monsters, madness...it's all there! pantagruel's nativity is a haunting song with some playfull trumpet and keyboard in the intro. Edge of twilight is awesome...unlike anything you've heard...it's like a wierd journey through the night, you'll see what I mean. The house, the street, the room is a favourite of mine. It has a crazy melody and one of the wierdest instrumental complicated odds n' ends passages i've ever heard. It's absolutely awesome! Very gentle giant. Aquiring the taste is a wierd, yet charming little keyboard piece. Wreck is a classic, epic with medieval interludes. The moon is down is creepy and dark, similar to edge of twilight. Good vocals. Black cat is is slinky, like a black cat, and slightly disturbing. Plain truth starts off with a dumb intro in my opinion...it's the one song here I don't care for. I wish they had stopped with black cat, it would've been a five then! It starts with wah violin and someone talking, but I couldn't tell what they were saying. The song really just does nothing for me and with the weak intro...it should have been left off the album! This album is a very good gentle giant album. It's also very dark in a way that I like. Listen at night, especially the edge of twilight, the moon is down, and black cat. 4.5/5. This is gentle giant exploring the disturbing depths of madness and the night! Get it!
