Gentle Giant is the first album by British progressive rock band Gentle Giant, released in 1970. It first appeared in the United States and Canada with the same cover as the Three Friends album. American hip-hop duo Madvillain sampled "Funny Ways" on "Strange Ways" from their album Madvillainy, which was subsequently featured in an episode of the television show The Boondocks.

Gentle Giant released 11 studio albums and one live album during their career from 1970 to 1980. Gentle Giant's popularity rose again in the 1990s and beyond, as these later releases (and some new compilations and tribute albums) attest. Each of these contains unreleased material from Gentle Giant's lifetime. Numerous collections and greatest hits albums have appeared over the years.

Complétez votre collection Gentle Giant. First of ten (!) studio albums by this unique crew that tries to incorporate influences as disparate as madrigal singing, free jazz, hard-rock, classical composition techniques and serial 50's music. On this debut things aren't that complicated yet, but the album possesses enough diversity of vision to earn the term eclectic. The rock parts suffer strongly from murky production, but the quiet songs steal the show. Isn't it quiet and cold is serene and urban simultaneously and boasts surprising strings too, which are applied in a totally unexpected way.

Gentle Giant: The Power And The Glory. lyrics) Run, run, the shotgun has got you in its range. Turn, turn away, when it's time to make a change. Look where you're going. Music students (and their teacher) at Eskilstuna Musikskola perform a simplified version of Just the same by Gentle Giant. On Reflection cover (second attempt).

Between them, Gentle Giant were masters of a dizzying array of instruments and, as five of the six members were consummate singers, they could also write and perform complex vocal harmonies. Accordingly, their self-titled 1970 debut album was highly virtuosic, even by prog’s exacting standards, and its seven tracks skipped restlessly between styles, swiping elements of blues, rock, classical and 60s soul as required. Arguably more successfully realised, however, was the group’s second Visconti-helmed LP, Acquiring The Taste.
