The beginning is a great place to start
Gentle Giant's first album was still searching for their identity, which makes it more eclectic and perhaps even more intruiging than most of what was to follow. Even so, the roots of what followed are found clearly here, and since this was 1970, it's all highly original, not copycat kitchen-sink eclecticism. The old prog cliches had yet to be established. So there's more Genesis style grandeur than their later works, more Canterbury style fusion than all except "Three Friends" which in my opinion is the weakest of their first three, and only smaller doses of the baroque sound which would start to grow with their next album, "Aquiring the Taste" and reach full flower with their fourth, "Octopus".
