Gentle Giant – The Power and the Glory (1974/2014) [High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-Ray Disc]

A brand new mix in both high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround sound of this classic album from one of the most gifted and ambitious but perhaps also most underrated of the original wave of seventies progressive rock bands. For many (including Steven) The Power and the Glory from 1974 is their masterpiece. The remix was done from the master tapes at 96/24 and this is the 2 disc Blu-Ray/CD edition on the band’s own label Alucard. Also includes bonus tracks of the non-album title-track (originally released as a single), and an alternate take of Aspirations. The Blu-Ray also includes animated videos for the whole album, and exclusive instrumental mixes.

The group’s first U.S. release in two years featured ornate playing from Kerry Minnear on keyboards and Gary Green’s loudest guitar work up to that time. The Power and the Glory is also a fairly dissonant album, yet it made the charts, albeit pretty low. There seems to be a unifying theme having to do with one’s place in the social order, but it’s very vague in contrast to Pink Floyd’s re-creations of the post-’60s drug experience, Yes’ sweeping album-length suites, and ELP’s sci-fi epics. “No God’s a Man” is an infinitely more challenging piece of music than anything on Jethro Tull’s Aqualung, but that wasn’t a commercial virtue; nor could the electric violin break on “The Face” or the rippling electric guitar passages throughout cover the effort involved in absorbing these songs. The Power and the Glory vaguely resembled Genesis’ early art-rock albums, but without any presence as charismatic as Peter Gabriel. “Playing the Game” and “So Sincere” were the most accessible tracks and ended up as key parts of their concert set. –Bruce Eder
