Regarded by most diehards as Gentle Giant's last truly exceptional outing, 1976's INTERVIEW finds the British prog-rock group drifting in a somewhat poppier direction. While the ensemble still displays a knack for decidedly off-kilter tunes (see the lurching "Another Show"), Gentle Giant manages to recall Traffic on the groove-tinged title track, and breezes through light melodies on the gentle "Design." For those who are intrigued by the band, but daunted by the complexity of its early material, INTERVIEW provides a more readily accessible take on its distinctive sound. ...See Full Description

||more gentle noise|
another enjoyable album from one of the many good progressive-rock bands during the 70's.GG are definitely not for all tastes.The influence of British folk music is upfront,but they are rock music all the way.

I have never heard this album sound as good - the last of the great GG period. It was exciting to hear it (and the other anniversary remasters) closer to the way they must have intended it to sound.

Gentle Giant's eighth studio album, "Interview" has been expanded & remastered as part of DRT Entertainment's "35th Anniversary" series on the band. As with the other CDs in the series, the sound quality is a notable upgrade from all prior edtions of this album that have appeared on CD and there is a live version of the title cut as a bonus track. Also, the mastering error that plagued DRT's release of this CD earlier this summer has now been corrected and "Interview" can be enjoyed in all it's glory. Rejoyce, Gentle Giant fans!
