Prog Reviewer
3 stars Civilian is the third album in Gentle Giants largely uninspired pop foray, but luckily this album is better than the previous two. Though not complex in anyway, this music has far better songwriting with generally catchy melodies. Still, no more stand out musicianship is present and the interesting instrumentation is still a thing of the past as is the medieval influence. Most of these songs have a fairly decent rock song flow, which is fine. This album is overall much better than Giant For A Day, but still isn't recommended to anyone looking for great progressive rock. If you're looking for truly remarkable stuff, definitely check out the earlier albums first.
