3 stars I guess I'll be visited by three spirits for saying this but Tull's Christmas Album does little for me. Sure the songs are well played and sung but I feel that old Ian has stuck too closely to his old ways. Namely upbeat traditional instrumentals and a handful of original songs with his own (cynical?) take on the holiday and season. Perhaps if Ian and company had ventured into more traditional vocal based fair, like a Tull version of Little Drummer Boy, things might have been different. Sorry Ian but skirting on the outside fringes of the holiday doesn't do it for me. Now, bring on the spirits, it's going to be a long night.
