This is my very first Gentle Giant album, and, after many listens has rapidly become one of my favourite prog albums. I have never heard music so complex. In the end of 'Experience', for example, there are three melodies being played at once! One on the bass and two on synthesisers (I assume they're synthesisers). These musicians are stunning, creating coherent harmonies but still managing to direct their music in the opposite direction to what is purported. Although the music is not very accessible, in the sense that it takes quite a few listens and is an acquired taste (the vocals, certainly), it is certainly well worth the investment and is a delight to the ears. Close to perfection and undoubtedly a masterpiece of progressive music. (Oh, and the recording quality is brilliant too.)
