Overview

This two-fer from the venerable British progressive rock band Gentle Giant features the group's 1970 eponymous debut and 1971 sophomore outing Acquiring the Taste, both of which, along with their classic third release, Octopus, represented career highs. Of the two, Acquiring the Taste carries the most weight, boasting three of their best cuts in "Edge of Twilight," "The House," "The Street, The Room," and "The Moon Is Down," but their inaugural offering is notable for effectively establishing the band's eclectic sound.
