5 stars Before writing any thing, I would like to say just like bands as YES, GENESIS, RUSH, KANSAS, EL & PALMER etc.... I put GENTLE GIANT in the highest place, as even creativity as of virtuosity, in the story of the progressive rock. Proceeding in the analysis of the disk , they already begin in great style, although in this album, his sound l is not clearly delineated in the characteristics that did of the band a true one prog "sacred-monster " , this first work bring to us pearls as "Funny Ways" (what does get to put "side to side" a clearly t classic and baroque music theme with elements of the jazz and blues), "Alucard" (a type of hard or heavy-prog with a brass section), "Isn't It Quiet And Cold? " ( a inspired theme in the Stéphanie Grapelli & Django Reinhardt's style), "Nothing att All" (that seems to "open doors" for his second work "Acquiring the Taste"). In short, a great debut, and in my humble opinion one of the best disks of 1970. My rate is 5 stars!!!
