This track comes from "Acquiring The Taste" and is one of my favourites ever in the Giant's eclectic production. There's anything Giant-esque in it: the medieval choir arrangements, the risch and even unusual instrumentation, some sudden tempo changes, instrumental passages and so on. I like very much the sung theme, but I'm especially charmed, as usual, by the inexhaustible fantasy of this band.
A milestone in prog history: "Acquiring the Taste".
This song is like an ever changing water, including dozens of good ideas and never lingering on them. I bet many other artists could get ten good songs from this material, such it is abundant, but this was the most challenging phase in Gentle Giant's career, a real blast of creativeness and unpredictability. In a word, prog at its best.
