3 stars If this reviewer were writing this review exclusively for Gentle Giant freaks ( and he is one ) he would have to give it a hands down no contest 5+++++++ stars. Crammed on to two CDs is about two and a half hours of studio run throughs, alternate takes and false starts as well as studio chit chat amonst the members plus a cool booklet. It covers pretty much everything from 1970 to 1980 including an untitled track which didn't make it on to the final Civilian album. Perhaps meaningles to those not acquainted with the esoteric music of Gentle Giant this one is really for the hardcore fan. You will have to make a date with yourself in order to listen to and appreciate this Frankenstein in it's entirety. This reveiwer burned a mini Best of Under Construction CD for his personal use due to to the long running time. Under Construction 2 is also on the way for you maniacs out there who just can't get enough of this phenomenal Progressive rock group.
