5 stars In particular, this album from Gentle Giant is one of the most complex on his carreer. Is a priceless material that must be recognized in the progresive music world. The style of one of the most originals band of the period reach his limit in this production of 1971.

The songs provide a singular travel on the mind of his principal composers, the Shulman Brothers and Kerry Minnear; is a record that with the exception of the ballad Think of me with kindness any other band of the progressive fo the 70īs cannot create. Is a beatiful album, faithful - yet - to the goal of the band; compose complex, sincopated and polyrythmic melodies that create the perfect ambient to hear this great band.

And if we agregate the ballad, before mencionated, we have the most round material of the band. Is a relax that remember us that the hearts exist for love this music, this kind of bands and this albums.
