5.0 out of 5 stars It's never to late to discover the Giant, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free Hand [2012 - Remaster] (Audio CD)
I am 54, but have only just become fully aware of the Gentle Giant. Well that is not strictly true, as a long time proggy, I had heard bits and bobs and even owned the power and the glory, but as no LP crossed my path I simply missed out on this great group during their oh so short existence. Really they should have been there next to Genesis in the record stores but simply were not, so I didn't buy anything by them until this year, when quite by chance I looked at a you tube video of them and was blown away. Since then I have been quickly acquiring the taste, and they are my latest favorite band. This is my latest purchase, and it is as good as all the others I own. Indeed other than "acquiring the taste" this may be their best, most consistent and tuneful offering. Certainly this is a must own record if you are at all into Prog, as Gentle Giant as I have recently learned were by far the most interesting group in an era brimming full of great artists and mind blowing records. GG do not go along the techno flash route, they are a far more disciplined band, which contain 5 or 6 excellent musicians. The music itself twists and turns and is never dull. Indeed GG pack more ideas into a single song, than most prog bands have in their entire catalog. Simply put this a must own CD by a must own band...buy!
