4 stars "Heavy Horses" and "Songs From The Wood" are the 2 TULL album which sound the most alike. So "Heavy Horse" is a prog folk rock album. But there are less percussions here, and instruments are more conventional, despite the presence of violin on couples of tracks. I find ANDERSON's vocals a bit more in the background here, but still excellent. The keyboards are in the background too and I find them a bit shy. Martin Barre seems to use a bit more his electric guitar, but the mandolin and acoustic guitar are still omnipresent. The electric bass is very well played and is rather complex. I prefer slightly "Songs From The Wood".
