3 stars From all albums Jethro Tull made, this is the hardest to judge for me. It is a rather mellow album, giving the impression Ian slipped away in a mid-life crisis and nostalgia and decided to make more "hit" like songs, like Steel Monkey, the opener of the album. And this is not the only "easy listening", which culminates in She Said She Was A Dancer. Although not a bad song, this is food for Sky Radio not for high demanding prog ears. Nevertheless, Crest Of A Knave also contains one of my personal Tull favourites: Budapest. Complex rythm, very well sung, all in all a very surprising song. Another reviewer also mentioned the underrated song Dogs In The Midwinter. I couldn't agree more: recommended for all! In the end, I have to admit that this album is only nice for Tull fans, with one exception: the song Budapest is essential for all prog lovers.
