Those guys could fricken jam, but what dorks! "Free Hand" is a gem of an album, and is almost my favorite of the 2nd phase of the band, if it weren't for the last couple of songs which are a letdown in relation to what preceded...five of the most melodic and accessible songs from the classic seven album period. Even though very tuneful, the first 3/4's of "Free Hands" also boasts some of GG's tightest prog. musical sty-lings. A very satisfying release.
