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.

Octopus (Gentle Giant album). Octopus is the fourth album by British progressive rock band Gentle Giant, released in 1972. It marked a change in drummers from Malcolm Mortimore to John Weathers. The new line-up of the band delivered the Octopus album later in 1972, generally considered to represent the start of the band's peak period.

Gentle Giant were a British progressive rock band founded in London, United Kingdom active between 1970 and 1980. The band was known for the complexity and sophistication of its music and for the varied musical skills of its members. All of the band members, except the first two drummers, were ts. Although not commercially successful, they did achieve a cult following.

The style of Gentle Giant is hinted at on the album’s iconic cover; the face-centric art recalls In the Court of the Crimson King (from the year before) but while the King Crimson debut’s visage was contorted and expressionistic, the ‘gentle giant’ seen here is heart-warming and friendly. It’s not unimaginable that he’d probably want to invite you in for mead and venison if your paths crossed. Civilian is arguably the most grounded and ‘professional’ of the three pop Gentle Giant albums. It’s also, by turns, the most tedious and uneventful. While the glossy production and peppy synth-bolstered pop rock fits the early 80s zeitgeist like a snug mitten, Civilian once again proves that, as pop songwriters, Gentle Giant were more sure to miss than hit. Comparisons are often made between this and Yes 90125.

For me, the best GENTLE GIANT album. One of the great, original and creative bands, and their debut album is a very good example. Really, not too many bands in progressive music history could make so complex interplay between instruments and voices, keeping the beauty of each piece. Great musicians and superb compositions. Although many people doesn't consider this album as the best of GG, I think this is the mandatory start point to understand the band.
