5 stars Eight opus: octopus!

The medieval music, the variety and inventive music that really give birth to a cult, 'cause they are probably the first or the better of their own style!

They build all their music around 4 or 5 minutes. The solo was short BUT intense. No dull moment. AND the VOICES!!! So GOOD!

The important medieval litteracy take an important place in all first seven album (1970-75) of GG .

This giant consider their fan to be intelligent enough to understand their style.

The problem is that they change too much their style after Free hand. Take a step everywhere else after this one (FH).

(Their shows was so good that i will buy the famous GG dvd)
