3 stars This is my first taste of Gilgamesh, and to be honest, I'm not sure what to think. Another Fine Tune You've Got Me Into remains a typical example of the Canterbury scene. This fully instrumental outfit plays similar music to National Health - to some extent at least. This is very jazzy stuff (no woodwinds, though), more so than most of the Canterbury albums I've heard, but the trademark sound of the genre is still present all the time - whatever that means. Very calm and peaceful music, with Alan Gowen's keyboards leading the way. The music is mostly complex, and yet it's fairly easy to listen to - it doesn't hurt your ears in any way. Perfect stuff to listen to late at night, when you're alone, and want to get your daily dosage of prog, but do not want anything too avant-garde. Nevertheless, at the end of the day, none of the compositions are that memorable or remarkable. Some of the tracks leave me a bit cold - lots of jamming, but the compositions do not seem to go anywhere. AFTYGMI lacks the 'oomph' aspect to make it anything but a fairly enjoyable example of the Canterbury scene. Theme From Something Else is the finest piece here, a nicely quirky keyboard-oriented track with many exciting moments. In conclusion, I'd like to say that this is pretty good stuff if you're a fan of the sub-genre, but if you're not, there are many more important bands and albums you need to go through before entering the world of Gilgamesh.
