3 stars I've never agreed with the concensus that this is one of Tull's worse - in my opinion this is in their top ten. The pervious year's "Stormwatch", whilst containing some good tunes is probably one of their most boring LPs, whilst 1982's "Broadsword and the Beast" has to be their most over-rated. This, on the other hand, is innovative, original and slightly bonkers - everything you need from Tull. The music is wonderfully driven and very intricate, whilst the lyics concentrate on nuclear war, terrorism, consumerism - fantastically bleak, late 70s paranoia stuff. It loses marks for the admittedly terrible "Batteries Not Included" - one of their top five horrors to this day - but the rest is pretty darned good, whilst "Black Sunday" and "Fylingdale Flyer" deserve to be ranked amongst their very finest songs.
