The Missing Piece is the ninth album by British progressive rock band Gentle Giant which was released in 1977. After the Interview tour this return to the studio marked a change of direction for the band with the first side of the album exploring different musical directions than the band was previously known for, including pop music and punk rock, while the second side was more in the vein of their signature progressive rock style. This was the last Gentle Giant album to chart in the United States.

Gentle Giant's entire catalog is untouchable standing out no matter to whom it might be compared! I am on record saying that the Giant never wrote or played a bad song. For me though, Mountain Time comes closest to a 'bad' song as Giant ever got. I know that it's a matter of taste and not anything technical! Well written under the constructs and guidelines of proper songwriting, MT just doesn't float my boat
Gentle Giant, who had been plying their unique brand of the genre since the late 60s, felt obliged to adapt their style to suit the current mood, with a view to cracking the American market in the process. With a set of songs that had been refined over the previous year’s live tour, the results of the change in direction were heard on The Missing Piece, released as the bands ninth album, on 16 September 1977. Elsewhere, on an album that found the band spreading its wings stylistically, ‘I’m Turning Around’ is a breakup song replete with a winning, anthemic, chorus. On ‘Betcha Thought We Couldn’t Do It’, the band put their own stamp on punk, while ‘Mountain’ finds them taking on boogie rock. Despite the change towards a more commercial style, The Missing Piece sold poorly on release, while also splitting opinion among the band’s fans.
