5 stars At the time of my first run-through of this album, I hadn't ever heard anything nearly as complex as Octopus. Songs like "Knots" left me confused yet satisfied. After several listens, I can state with confidence that this album is a must- have for every prog fan out there. Gentle Giant is one of the most underrated prog bands, and one of the most talented too. This album is the apex of the bands talents and creativity. Every track is an instant classic. "The Advent of Panurge", "The Boy's in the Band", and "Rivers" should all be regarded as some of the best prog tracks ever recorded.
