In a Glasshouse is one of my favourite albums of all time and i am sure that many other reviewers will give a good idea of the musical content. However K. Demitriou highlights a problem for anyone wanting to invest in GG cd's. There have been so many remasters released by different labels some exellent and others not so. It is not easy to know which versions to go for. I have spent a small fortune trying to get the best versions as Giant are my favourite band of all time. I hope i can help any bewildered fans or newcomers with the following recommendations. For the first four albums i would opt for the versions released by the Repetoire label, the sound quality is full lively and dynamic and the original cover art is exactly reproduced with gatefold sleeves. All are available on this site.
After this it gets a little more difficult. I have not heard any of the 35th anivesary releases but for me I want the original artwork wherever possible. I have the same version of In a Glasshouse that K. demitriou mentions in his review here, mainly because it is the only version other than the 35th aniversary release that I have been able to find. Compared to the Repetoire releases i agree that the sound quality is not as good but i would not go as far as him and describe it as poor and i would definately get this if you like the album. For The Power and the Glory I would recomend the Capitol import version that is available from EliteDigital one of the Amazon sellers. You can find it in the GG section on this site. It has the original artwork reproduced in the standard cd format and has a good punchy sound however it is 20 quid for a new copy. For Free Hand and Interview I have the BGO doublepack version but I am hoping to replace this as the sound quality is the weakest of the GG cds that I own.

I bought this directly from i think the keyboard player Kerry Minnear some years ago and thought it desperately needs a review.
This is to me, the finest of Gentle Giant's albums. I got into them via a guy called Brian who claimed he knew them at school (maybe Portsmouth, where some of them came from). He financed a demo album for my band 'Ayup' in 1973, but dissapeared a few years later. Having borrowed a few of their earlier albums, I thought yes, this band is different to every other 'Proggy' band. A mix of King Crimson and Yes perhaps best describes them with maybe a touch of Tull (For a modern interpretation try Spocks Beard/Neal Morse).
Now for the album : An extension of their previous 'Octupus' with more folky contributions. The first track (always good to break the ice at parties!!) is pretty normal GG (for them). Track 2 is the awkward one 'An Inmates Lullaby' one of the weirdest from GG (guaranteed NOT to break the ice at parties!!!) 'Way of Life' is a great rockier track with unusual vocal line, braking into a chamber piece and returning back to the previous section, ending with a great repeated line with keyboards fading away before the glorious 'Experience' with very complex rhythms. A quieter almost hymn like vocal follows until the typical GG soft/loud riff starts, briefly returning to the hymn then ending a complex fadeout. Reunion - a folky/chamber piece follows before the great title track with it's folky start then great sax and change of key building up to the killer heavy riff from Gary's guitar at 4:14, Derek Shulman at his vocal best with probably Kerry on the quieter bits, some unusual slide from Gary Green, until Derek returns for the repeated vocal fading out with that great riff. But beware it's party time again with a short resume of each track. My version also has a couple of live european bonus tracks from 'Glasshouse'. This is highly recommended with a unique CD cover ( as near as poss to the LP version)

1973's In A Glass House was the fifth studio album that the British Progressive Rock band Gentle Giant released overall and the second of their albums to feature John Weathers on the drums. As usual Gentle Giant fail to disappoint; this is a brilliant album hands down, just like every other Gentle Giant album before it, and even a few after it too.

Gentle Giant were consistent as well as talented, creative and eclectic. If you like one of their songs you won't hear another that sounds like it, but you will likely love most of the assorted songs they made. As a rule, the band cover a whole lot of musical ground in each song, more on each album and a great deal across their whole career. You never know where a song will go and how many moods and tones it will cover, but you can be fairly certain that it will be entertaining.

Compared to the album which preceded it In A Glass House is different different, a bit more out there, a little more progressive but still innately Gentle Giant. The level of creativity and musicianship on the album is utterly exceptional. Gary Green is in fine form in particular here delivering a great performance and as always Kerry hits it out of the park with ace keyboard and moog throughout. In fact, each member is a simply superb musician and usually all deserve immense praise.

One thing that makes In A Glass House stand out in the catalogue is that the album arguably has a much simpler approach to vocals than other Gentle Giant records, but then it also has as complicated if not more complicated music.
