2 stars Not really a bad album as such, but you have to like it to appreciate it, and i don't particularly like it.

The main thing I miss on this album is Jeffrey Hamond Hamond Hammond, always loved his bass playing and often his playing was a highlight for me, another thing is a little repititiveness that I encounter, coppying elements from earlier albums, and when expanding in new territory they never reach for the stars but stay in safe territory.

Not really much to say about the album really, generally it's pretty soft, focussing on accoustic guitars and folkish melody's, often reminiscent of songs like Wond'ring Aloud, and assorted earlier Tull songs.

Not all bad, but basically only Tull Fans will enjoy this album really, if not such a fan, steer clear until you are.
