5 stars "Free Hand" was my introduction to Gentle Giant before I was recommended to ProgArchives.com. I lost my copy but I've listened to it quite a few times so I think I remember it enough to review it properly. I fell in love with these guys from this album, but I could never find any of their other works. Once I came to ProgArchives.com, I looked up what other albums I would like and found them at a store. Commercialism set aside, I've come to think very highly of these guys. They have a very complex sound to them unlike a lot of other symph. prog bands. If you do not know what to expect from these guys and are a little wary of just jumping in, I suggest to start off with this album or "Three Friends", then work your way up to "In a Glass House" and "Octopus".
