Prog Reviewer
3 stars The debut, self-titled album by Gentle Giant is exactly what is to be expected: early sounding Gentle Giant. The music here is still complex and interesting, but not nearly as much as it would later become on subsequent releases. The vocals are not as confident and the songwriting is definitely not as strong as on later releases either. But this is the debut album, after all. This music seems mostly like slightly medieval inspired blue-rock. It's not terrible by any means, no, but definitely isn't essential and definitely not recommended for Gentle Giant beginners, who should probably start with In a Glass House or The Power and The Glory.
