Civilian is the eleventh and final studio album by British band Gentle Giantreleased in Consisting mostly of short rock songs, it is closer to a hard rock sound than the progressive style for which the band is best known. The album also marked a return to Columbia Records in the U.
Soon after the album's release, Gentle Giant played a final tour and Between Us (From The Film All You Need Is Cash) - The Rutles - Rehearsal split up.
Civilian was a critical and commercial failure, the negative reception being so overwhelming that some record stores reportedly refused to carry it for fears of generating bad publicity. Another track from the same period, "You Haven't a Chance", appeared on Leah - Black Swan - 1st compilation album Under Construction 17 years later.
Some CD and vinyl releases are missing this ending.
