UK, 1971, progressive rock

Gentle GiantAcquiring the Taste: Wow. My collection is dominated not only by 70s music but by prog rock. Oh well. I love the complexity and technical proficiency, but those elements alone wouldn’t be enough. I like how Gentle Giant didn’t bow to the commercial fashion of the time but set out to make music that wasn’t what the listening public expected. They broke rules, and they did it well. The album, as made known by the band, is aptly named, inviting lovers of music to acquire a taste for a new kind of rock sound.

One thought on “

  1. I once heard that only Gentle Giant made true music and that all other groups produced mere fashion…

    Since it was from a bandmember of Gentle Giant, I’d say it has to be trustworthy. Wouldn’t he know, after all?
