5 stars Well, what can I say about Gentle Giant? One of the perfect prog bands ever. This album I enjoy it from the first. A very complex, but rather listenable progressive music. Every composition has its charm and a very enjoyable way of tasting. Shulman brothers & co. prove that the progressive rock music should be played at the highest peak. I cannot say I have a favourite song. However, Raconteur, Troubadour and Think of me with kindness are my favourite ones. Overall, this album represents a truerly masterpiece of prog music. I said this, based on the complexity of the music, the diversity of sound and instruments the members are playing and , of course, the voice of Derek Shulman which fits very well on the sound. Highly recommended : 4,5 stars.
