It fucking rocks. Gentle Giant are definately the 'funnest' 70's prog group. They have a big sound without ever sounding pompous or bombastic, show their technical abilities without wanking, and write pimping tunes.
It's very hard to dislike them.

Really old thread here and it might take ages before Comus reads this, but having progressed beyond the seven essentials, I have to say I feel the idea that they have but 7 great albums is wrong.

I've yet to really get into Giant for a day and Civilian (their two last albums), but I like Interview (came after Free Hand) a lot and feel that one should at least be included in the GG greats. I'm sure Comus would like it had he included it for this thread. Playing the Fool also has some great music on it although you arguably do have some filler there.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

Two Weeks in Spain just gets stuck in your head for days on end. It's just too catchy.
