4 stars G.G. is my new favourites! I'm glad that I gave their albums the time that they require. I've had two albums with G.G. for a long time, but never really appreciated them. Now I have all of their classic albums and I just love them. "Acquiring the taste" is more mature than the raw debut, but doesn't reach the same hights as the ones that were still to come (but not many albums do). The complexity and the oddities that forms the sound of G.G. are very exquisite. I think this band had a totally unique style and presented the best series of albums in prog-history. This band is for sure giants, it's a shame though that their masterpieces "...GlassHouse", "Power...", "Octopus" etc. don't reach higher grades than they do. At least one of these should be top 5. "Acquiring the taste" is however one of the classic G.G. albums that I don't give five stars.
