4 stars Three friends represents my first experience with Gentle Giant. While not yet as complex as GG would eventually become, the underlying complexities to GG music was beginning to take shape. The use of vocal rounds and musical talkbacks were becoming more prevelant. One thing that GG held throughout their progressive period (1970-1975) was a blend of comical silliness and dark seriousness that is probably no more present in any other of their albums than 3 Friends. Schooldays is the finest example of that. 3 Friends also represent the strongest call back to their hard rocking roots with "Working All Day" and "Peel the Paint".

Very Good album, often underated, 3 Friends will always hold a high place in my collection.
