4 stars 'Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young To Die!' is not the best album of Jethro Tull. Maybe 'Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young To Die!' is one of the more Rock albums by Tull!

Certainly with 'Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young To Die!' Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson give birth to a good Rock album with excellent Folk arrangements, not hard and, at the same time, not melodic, looking carefully at the POP even though with Hard Rock songs! The power of this album (and the magic of this album) is all in my sentence. But sure 'Too Old To Rock'n'Roll: Too Young To Die!' is not a simple transition from the album between Prog and Heavy Folk Rock to pure Rock. Because proper the elaborates (and not invadent) Folk arrangements are the winning element. Element that allowed the songs to be aging extreme well with a true traditional Prog soul. And if you listen to in attentive way this album (I love title track, for example) you will understand what I meant.

In this album can be felt all the magic and the desire to play with poetry which is always Ian Anderson and the other musicians involved. 'Too Old To Rock'n'Roll: Too Young To Die!' is a work of a mature band and a sincere album. Certainly not for Tull's newbies but certainly in pure Tull tradition.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
