2 stars I listened to this album for the first time in the late seventies, and I didn`t like it. One of my brothers had it, and he years later traded it for Rainbow`s "Bent of of Shape" album with a friend! Obviously my brother didn`t like it, too, but his friend was very surprised, saying: "Do you have this album and you don`t like it?". My brother also didn`t like "Bent Out Of Shape", the same as me!

Gentle Giant was one of those Progressive Rock bands which was very much liked by some friends, but I didn`t like it despite repeated listenings to this album in particular. It seems that this album is very popular and it is maybe their most praised album, but for me it wasn`t interesting. This album has some influences by Jazz music, some good vocals arrangements, but it sounded monotonous to me. It is maybe more interesting the "concept" of the album of "three friends from childhood who grow and went their separate ways" than the music in this album. So, bands like Gentle Giant and this album are for their Fans only.
