3 stars All gentle Giant albums up to '77 are superb. I was all ready to stick the boot into this album, but on listening to it I now realise it's an excellent album on a par with their previous releases. All the usual vocal acrobatics - layer upon layer are present on 'Interview'. It certainly is a bit more upbeat. Maybe they were feeling the pressure to come up with something new during the advent of the 'Pistols'?

Probably not.

"Give it Back' has the same dual vocals and it has carefully executed instrumental parts as past Gentle Giant albums. If anything the production values are more polished and clear giving it a bit of a different feel from previous albums. Admittedly, it is a bit more 'rocky' therefore this one gets a very acceptable 3 stars. Still pretty damn good though, and not to be avoided by Giant fans who are unsure.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
