2 stars For a look at the classic Jethro Tull, check out any of their 70's albums. If you're a pretty strident Tull fan, CREST OF A KNAVE isn't a bad investment, but it isn't great either. I'm sure most fans that heard this wondered where the classic Jethro Tull sound went; we get songs that sound like Dire Straits castoffs. Don't let the appeal of a ten minute epic fool you; it doesn't compare to earlier Tull works despite ''Budapest'' being one of the better cuts from the album. CREST OF A KNAVE mostly takes a straight rock kind of sound with only the epic, ''Farm on the Freeway'' and ''Mountain Men'' attaining any classic value. The ballads (''She Said She Was a Dancer'' and ''The Waking Edge'') and the techno hit ''Steel Monkey'' are rough to sit through knowing the classics of Tull that I do. Worth the investigation only after you've exhausted enough of the 70's Jethro Tull works and still crave for more.
