4 stars Generally, I would categorize GENTLE GIANT as a pretty light hearted band, with the exception of "Acquiring the Taste". On this release, GENTLE GIANT turned out a much darker album, which over the years has caused room for debate. A lot of GG fans seem divided on this album... I am certainly on the pro side here as this is one of my GG top picks. According to the liner notes: "We have recorded each composition with the one thought - that it should be unique, adventurous and fascinating." And this statement is so very true. "Acquiring The Taste", the band's second album, plunges them even further into dark yet classic GG formations of complex structures, challenging time signatures and odd vocal and harmonic characteristics.
