The Meandering Hexagon
Listener's Log: Acquiring the Taste by Gentle Giant
Album: Acquiring the Taste
Artist: Gentle Giant
Release Date: 16 July 1971
Date Listened: 4 May 2017
Remarks: Acquiring the Taste is one of those albums that you would never listen to based on the, erm, artwork. But! The boys' sophmore record is far more atmospheric and sensitive than their first. There is much less rock here, and a lot more roll. Surely a harbinger of the great things to come.
Stand Out Tracks: Pantagruel's Nativity, Edge of Twilight, The House, the Street, the Room, Wreck, The Moon Is Down, Black Cat, Plain Truth
