In A Glass House songs Product Information
In A Glass House album for sale by Gentle Giant was released May 10, 2005 on the DRT Entertainment label. Gentle Giant was reduced to a quintet on In a Glass House with the departure of elder brother Phil Shulman, but its sound is unchanged, and the group may actually be tighter without the presence of his saxophones. The time signatures are still really strange, and the tempo changes are sometimes jarring, as is the wide range of dynamics, but this is also one of the group's most pleasing records -- they rock out in various places, and elsewhere perform all kinds of little experiments with percussion instruments ("An Inmate's Lullaby"), or create a strange, otherworldly sort of modern medieval-style music ("Way of Life"). In A Glass House CD music contains a single disc with 7 songs. ...See Full Description

||don't throw stones please|
I prefer their earlier albums,and i know i'm in the minority there,but so be it.I do like this better than "Octopus" even though they are sort of in the same style."The Runaway" , "Experience" and "In A Glass House" are all incredible songs.

||Overlooked: One Of The '70s Best Prog Rock LPs|
GG is the band Jethro Tull and Yes wanted to be & might have been - if not for the overweening, goofy egos of their lead singers, lol. Seriously, these guys are consummate musicians and rock fusion artists in the truest sense. Record companies & radio didn't know what to do with them. Yes, they're an acquired taste, and not everything they tried worked, but this early LP is their 5-star home run. My only complaint is I wish it were longer. Today's one hit & gone wonderkid$ should listen to this & bow their heads in shame: And you think yourselves 'musicians.'

||The best band in ever.......|
One of the best album from the best band in history. If you are new to Gentle Giant, you have to be patient. It may take many listenings before the music reaches your heart. But it will stay there forever! This is a must for prog. rockers.

Gentle Giant was maybe the prog rock group that mostly reached the goal of reconstruct his style in each album. This is one of their greatest. The Runaway develops their basic criteria: the meeting between medieval and renaissance music with rock. An Inmates Lullaby features a solo voice (filtered) as an ostinato over a base of keybordist' vibraphone and drummer's xylophone. In A Reunion a sweet voice goes over a string quartet instrumentation, played by keybordist and bassist. That's why the original cover includes photographs of the musicians playing their instruments and over it another plastic one playing other ones. Everyone sings and everyone plays additional recorder and percussion. Unfortunately this version doesn't includes the original last piece (called Index) that contained a pair of seconds of every track in the disc; an excelent idea, because in a record an index is completely unuseful. Buy it immediately if you are a musician, or left it behind if you like vogue or easy sounds.

||Much better than original CD|
I also have the original CD by Terrapin as well as the original vinyl. The new version captures much more the spirit of the record in sound quality and is a small replica of the original packaging. The Terrapin sounds very thin in comparison. One of my favorite G.G. discs and a must have for fans.
