5 stars Ah, In a Glass House. This is Giant's 5th album, and the first after the departure of elder Shulman brother Phil. For me this is probably the masterpiece of the GG discography, and from the rhythmic loop of the breaking glass in The Runaway, the album makes a super convincing, near irrefutable argument for that sake. It's interesting that in the climate of such turmoil within the band that they managed to craft songs such as The Runaway, Experience, and the title track. The major selling point of an album like this is that it simply has it all: mind- blowing virtuosity, accessible melody, astounding innovation, and above all TASTE. This is what tends to separate Giant from some of their more indulgent contemporaries. The music is beautifully composed, arranged, and executed. It's truly a shame that more people aren't willing to give something like this time, as it can be a challenging experience. However when the cobwebs dissolve and you allow this album to be absorbed in your psyche, you will never forget it. Essential.
