3 stars This album should have been much better. The songs are not bad in themselves, with some very Tull-like flourishes. The problem comes from the cheesy 80's synthesizer sounds and completely flat drum tracks. And playing along with sequencers in lieu of a real band made up of live musicians usually produces a lifeless sound. This is no exception. I wonder what this would have sounded like if it had been released by Tull, and not just Anderson and Vitesse.

But again, if you can get past the synths and sequences, the songs are typical Ian Anderson, well written with witty lyrics, and some interesting musical twists.

I'd really rate this 2.5 stars. I'm rounding up because Anderson deserves it.

Evolver | 3/5 |
