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.

Half the charm of prog. When your music is that badass, who needs to wear a leather jacket, and be the Fonz? Shame so few people get that.

That would be even dorkier. I thought GG had the prog-look down when they had the longer flowing hair and that hippie medieval mystical garb.
