4 stars I'm glad that Kerry sings on a good portion of this album, but generally for me, vocals have always been the weakest point in Gentle Giant's studio albums. However, GG's live video of "I Lost My Head" showcases the best vocal performance I have seen of Shulman as of yet. But I always thought that Kerry's voice suited the band more.

Musically, In a Glass House is superb. Gary Green does a very commendable job at the guitar parts, and overall, the instrumentals are very enjoyable. What I particularly like about the album is that certain songs give off a certain unusual feeling for the listener (at least for me it did). There are definitely haunting pieces in the album, and they did a great job at eliciting these sensations. In my opinion, this is the probably the best album I have heard from them so far although Acquiring The Taste puts up a very good fight.

Since I mentioned that the vocals is one of the downsides to the album, I'd like to contend to that statement a little in saying that the latter half of "Experience" features some great singing by Derek.

All in all, good band. I always thought their studio albums were too clinical for my tastes, but I enjoy their live videos far more. They are actually one of my favorite bands that performed live.
