8 thoughts on “ Knots - Gentle Giant - Octopus (CD, Album)

  1. Octopus, an Album by Gentle Giant. Released in on Alucard (catalog no. ALUGG; CD). Genres: Progressive Rock.
  2. Gentle Giant's music was considered complex even by progressive rock standards, drawing on a broad swath of music including folk, soul, jazz, and classical music. Unlike many of their progressive rock contemporaries, their "classical" influences ranged beyond the Romantic and incorporated medieval, baroque, and modernist chamber music elements.
  3. Octopus was allegedly named by Phil Shulman’s wife Roberta as a pun on “octo opus” (eight musical works, reflecting the album’s eight tracks).
  4. Jul 31,  · Knots is the fourth track from their album Octopus. The Lyrics: All in all each man in all men. All men in each man. He can see she can't, she can see. she can. see whatever, whatever.
  5. Octopus, from , was one of Gentle Giant's most accomplished and accessible releases blending the band's abundant imagination with a collection of strong melodies and focused performances. This Alucard label cd edition features a Steven Wilson mix and a 15 minute live performance of Excerpts From Octopus from the band's tour.
  6. Returning to Gentle Giant's fourth album after any kind of lengthy absence, it's astonishing just how little Octopus has dated. Often written off at the time as a pale reflection of the truly gargantuan steps being taken by the likes of Jethro Tull and Barclay James Harvest, the band's closest relatives in the tangled skein of period prog, Gentle Giant often seemed more notable for its album art than its music.
  7. Label: Vertigo - • Format: Vinyl LP, Album Gatefold • Country: Germany • Genre: Electronic, Rock • Style: Prog Rock Gentle Giant - Octopus (, Gatefold, Vinyl) | Discogs Explore.
  8. Dec 19,  · Seriously the CD Remix sucks compared to the Repertoire Records ‎– REP (CD, Album, Reissue, Digipak ). I have not tested the Mix though/5(40).
