1 stars Ooopsssss!!!!!!!!!! The first real blunder for J Tull . But not as bad as Under Wraps

Nothing in it for a prog fan and even the Tramp admitted that this was an ill-advised mistake in answer to the criticism from mindless weekly press as MM and NME. This is straight hard rock and the title says it all , unfortunately, because there might be some humour but in other albums it was put to good music - here it isn't. However retrospectively, this album can be seen as a sort of Blueprint for late 80's era albums such as Knave , Rock Island or Catfish Rising!!

Actually this album is not that bad (just un-inventive and ill-advised and veeeeery deceiving after such stupendous works like Bricks or TMITG) so you can easily award it another halfstar!!! But it should not be investigated unless you have explored everything else from Tull!
