4 stars My first Gentle Giant album, and a great introduction to the band. I love their use of vocal harmonies before going into the main part of the song, it adds a lot to the piece before you even get into the real music. The musicians are all great, including a some great bass playing. Not in its technicality, it just sounds good. The lyrics are not the best i've ever heard but, the way they are rhythmically placed over the rest of the band makes one not care about what they're saying. The best song are "Time to Kill," "Just the Same," and "Free Hand."

Anyone who listens to Yes or Genesis should definitely check out Gentle Giant.
