5 stars Gentle Giant is one of my favorite bands of all time, and I wasn't entirely sure about that until I first heard "The Power and the Glory". From the staccato organ that opens the album and that funky bass that plays 'till the end of this album, I knew that this was the band that represented what my opinion of the best of progressive rock should sound like.

I won't go into the tracks individually, because there is too much to say about each one. Every track has Gentle Giants trademark bizarreness and complexity, and strong elements of funk and jazz, accentuated by the medieval themes that Gentle Giant fans have come to love. Every member of the band is at the absolute top of their game on this album, and it comes through indefinitely.

Masterpiece of eclectic progressive rock, without a shadow of a doubt.
