Review by Gatot
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars As far as Gentle Giant compilation I always say that Edge of Twilight compilation in 1996 is the best one to recommend for newbie because of its completeness and also very good selection of materials. This first five years best is also very good one as it covers tracks Gentle Giant produced the first seven albums from self titled right way through the one released in 1975: Free Hand. Those who know Gentle Giant, they must admit that those first seven albums are great albums with the exception of debut album (my case only). But that's OK as the rest are really excellent albums. The selection of tracks is also quite good even though I am a bit disappointed that my favourite track "Proclamation" is not featured here. But that's OK as The Power and The Glory was included.

Of course some tracks that have become my all time favourites are included here: Alucard, Nothing at All - which I really like the vocal harmonies and the melody. A Cry for Everyone should have been positioned at the beginning of the compilation as it rocks! Then I also like Peel The Paint where the vocal quality as well as discrete music are really good. One track Playing The Game is probably fans getter as it's quite accessible to many ears, I believe. But then this compilation is concluded with In A Glass House which is quite hard for people to digest.

Overall, this is a good compilation suitable for newbie. Keep on proggin' ...!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
