4 stars Adventurous, epic and interesting! "Acquiring The Taste" is a great 2nd album from Gentle Giant. The music is very original, challenging and highly interesting. The album has a dark feeling to it, IMO, but that only makes it even more personal. For a 1971 album, this work is truly astonishing and creative, even more creative than most Progressive Rock albums at that time. The only flaws is "Wreck" which is a good track, but not up to pair with the rest of the album, In my opinion. If you liked their debut or Octopus, get this one too, you'll not regret!

Favorite tracks: "Pantagruel's Nativity", "The House, The Street, The Room", "The Moon Is Down", "Black Cat".
