1. Octopus
2. Gentle Giant
3. Acquiring The Taste
4. Free Hand
5. Three Friends

This is too hard. The top two are solid in their places, the rest pretty much move around, but Giant For a Day is bottom. 

1. Free Hand
2. In a Glass House
3. Interview
4. Acquiring The Taste
5. The Missing Piece
6. The Power And The Glory
7. Civilian
8. Octopus
9. Gentle Giant
10. Three Friends
11. Giant For a Day

Oooh, some controversial placings there!

I'm pretty bad at this sort of thing, but my top 3 (not in any order) are probably Acquiring the Taste, Three Friends, and In a Glass House.

This pretty much sums it up for me, I'd switch the self titled and Free Hand but otherwise keep it the same.

3) Octopus
4) The Power And The Glory
5) In A Glass House
6) Three Friends
7) Gentle Giant
8) Interview
9) Missing Piece
10) Giant For A Day and Civilian (they are both terrible albums.)
 
So I'm a huge Gentle Giant fan, and I find them very creative and talented. It's a shame that they broke up too early, because I like them so much. But at the time of their break-up, they created the opposite of what they used to compose, and the two last albums are very far from the six masterpieces and the two great albums they created.
