1 stars OK, give it another halftstar!!!

Same remark as the previous one . I don't know who highly recommends this but there are about 90% of the J T albums to discover before this one - one might even say it is worth investigating rap and boys band before attacking this dud. All kidding aside , this album is clearly not one of their best , but during the early 80's Tull was going through changes ( this clearly started with the sub-standard Stormwatch ) and most of the second or third line-up of the band (Glascock, Barlow, etc..) were leaving one after the other and being replaced by veterans of other bands ( Jobson, Mattacks, etc..) with only Martin Barre hanging on.

Yes , Tull was modernizing its sound and this was a rather painfull process (especially for our ears - jesssss kiddddiiiinnnnn), and this album reminds me of Yes's Drama or Genesis's Duke albums. The unfortunately awful synths sound brought in by Jobson for this modernization are partly the culprit for this album sounding awkward , but also the songwriting is rather uninventive and Tull simply sound a a loss for real project.
