3 stars If this eclectic prog giant hadn't made as many strong albums this record 'Interview' would have definitely been a must-have. As it is, I prefer at least five other records Gentle Giant made. On this album the band is carefully experimenting with adding some pop-sensibilities without tuning down much of their wildly broad-minded musical experimentation. And whilst no song sounds particularly like something they did before, the album does sound a bit like its just more of the same. Few songs stand out, though 'I Lost My Head' would surely make many fans best of compilation. Perhaps I'm missing the more psychedelic early-seventies recording style of the earlier records, whereas this record sounds crisp and clear. 'Interview' offers some very complex and well composed music, but I found myself releasing this LP from my care; for I'm not THAT big of a fan.
