4 stars "A" marked an obvious change in Tulls music as they attempted to fit in, or somehow were influenced with the technology driven 80's. This and "Crest of a Knave" I consider the bands two best 80's albums. There are some very strong songs on "A" some of them being "Flyingdale Flyer" and "Working John, working Joe" as well as "Black Sunday" and "Pine Martins Jig". The band is in fine form with new bassist Dave Pegg as well as Mark Craney taking the drum throne and the two make a nice rythm section. Excellent keyboards by Eddie Jobson over from Roxy Music. Marin Barre sounds very strong on this release even though with the bands change in direction. Ian still has his voice and the flute parts sound great with this newer musical direction they were taking. I will always be surprised that they chose to open this album with "Crossfire" which while a good song does not seem like an opening number at all. Go out and buy this album as it is worth owning.
