3 stars Last album of the trilogy

Catfish rising from 1991 has the same structure and manner of composing, with the previous two albums, Crest of knave and Rock island, that's why i said is like a trilogy Anderson made, but of course not a real one, only because they look the same to each other. So the music on this album is pleasent but rather dull and short in ideas, i prefer Crest of knave, and i guess the best from late '80's early '90's albums. Anderson in some places is toying with hard rock or sometimes sounds like Dire Straits, just check out the pieces This Is Not Love or Still Loving You Tonight the rest are in the same manner, not realy bad but nothing special either, nothing make put this record on and on in my CD player like the '70's stuff. For example Roll Yer Own is the worst piece ever JT ever created, belive me, is a total disater, sounds like is from Too old to r'n'r too young too die, same greasy atmosphere in a irish pub. All in all i might say a good album, but not realy un etertainer like Crest of a knave. 2.5 rounded to 3, while is still a pleasent album , i think is must be considered, at least for me, the worst Tull album after Under wraps.
