4 stars This is an amazing album. Very funny melodies, great instrumental passages, good skills, Inspired vocal games. And the most important thing here is the diversity. Gentle Giant mixed a lot of rythms with great coherence.

The sound is very happy almost Carnivalesque, sometimes one could imagine derek Shulman dressed like a jester or something. And the variety of instruments makes this a very ludic album, with catchy melodies, that keeps turning around in your mind for a long time.

Maybe an Epic is missing here, something bigger, but in general lines is a great piece of Art.

4,4 Stars Really
