4 stars This is Gentle Giant at their most difficult experimental and challenging best. Tight grooving rhythms topped with technical proficiency unlike any other band was capable of. Romps through guitar rock , classical renaissance voicing and madrigal singing, its really Gentle Giant performing on all cylinders. Unfortunately with all Gentle Giant albums the vocal approach is somewhat difficult to digest almost completely nixing catchy melodies for classical counterpoints it is hard to get used to. Fortunately like all other GG albums the musicianship has been stepped up once more to offer some deliciously complex arrangements and wild experimental ideas for a rock band. Love them or hate them this is an incredibly exciting album from start to finish.
