3 stars This is the perfect example of how progressive rock started. Given a rock-blues band basis, adding experimentation, and there you have one creative little band. With a debut album.

Gentle Giant has both the blues, the experimentation and, why not say, classical music experience (both XVIII th century and modern). And with some medieval - court music - elements... This album is very interesting, altough for some kinda hard to digest. The opening song is very very prog indeed, superb song. I also like, "Why Not" , a bit more rockish, but still the musicianship is very good.

Overall the album is a fairly good one, though, the follow ups were much better.
