The Truth
4 stars Another album length piece by the mad flutist Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull. Although nowhere near as good as its predeccessor Thick as a Brick, A Passion Play is very very good. Very much darker in mood than Thick as a Brick and not containing as many folk elements it has even harder lyrics to understand than Thick as a Brick, "The ice cream lady wet her drawers to see you in the passion play,"? But look at the positives, to me it is more symphonic prog than other Tull albums making it stand out in a good way and the spoken word nursery rhymes are just plain clever, "This is the story of the hair who lost its spectacles." Not as good as others but definately still a solid release.
The Truth | 4/5 |
