CD Reviews

Another excellent live cd from peak GG...

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Last time I checked, there were close to TWENTY live and/or BBC session albums by Gentle Giant.
So it might get a little difficult for newcomers to figure out which one(s) to get.

This is one of 'em.

"Playing The Fool" is their best live cd in terms of performance, sound quality and song selection. (If you don't have that one yet, come back here in three weeks after you've digested that gem...;-) And their "King Biscuit Flower Hour presents..." cd is another fine product. But I like this "Out of the Woods" cd a lot, partly because the band always finds a new wrinkle to throw into these already great songs, and also because this is about the only place you'll find the 5-minute opener "City Hermit". That song is in mono, and not on the same level of sound quality as the rest of the album - but still quite adequate, and the song itself is a worthy addition to your GG catalogue. Ya needs it.

Not much more to say - it's live Gentle Giant, so it's great. I think it's one of their top 3 live cd's.
There - I did the research for ya...

I value interesting music that is played and recorded well. This cd's rating was based on:
Music quality = 9.3/10; Performance = 9.0/10; Production = 8.5/10; CD length = 10/10.
Overall score weighted on my proprietary scale = 9.2 ("4-1/2 stars")
