4 stars It's been about 5 years since I first listened to this disc, after reading reviews on PA, telling me how it signals the dawn of their future sellout era. Listening to it was one of those "What are they talking about?" moments. It's refreshing to see that over the years the appreciation for this work has climbed. This has been one of my favorites from Gentle Giant.

I mean was it simply the Reggae structure in Give it Back that turned people off? Despite the simplicity of the form, they syncopate it beyond the norm and break free of the form, at least in my opinion. And Green still does some tasty work, coloring outside the lines of pure reggae, as well.

Perhaps it has something to do with not preferring the Phil Shulman era to the product afterwards
