5 stars How is it possible not to like GG???? It's simply the BEST BAND EVER!!!!!! Seriously, what band did what GG did in therms of melody, complexity, arrangements, instrumentation, crazy vocals, and, of course, weirdness??? ACQUIRING THE TASTE proves it, as it's their best album, and possibly the BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIMES! "The Moon Is Down" is a fantastic wind instrument work, one of the best! "Pantagruel's Nativity" is a fine moment of glory, another classic! What can I say about "Wreck"? Amazing tune! Weird and estrange "Edge Of Twilight"! "The House, The Street, The Room" - my God, is this a band or a divine miracle? Simplicity and eficiency it's the title track's last name, "Acquiring The Taste" "Plain Truth" it's Gary Green's peak. Finnaly, "Black Cat" it's Phil Shulman's turn! After GG, everything that you'll listen will be almost dull and meaning-less.
