4 stars JT's follow up to their solid debut That Was came screaming out of the gate with new guitarist Martin Barre's powerful Tony Iomi type riffs on A new day yesterday, a hard rocking blues opener. Jeffrey goes to Leicester Square is the first true folky number we will grow to love esp. In the 77-79 period. Great flute and acoustic guitar work. Bouree is a signature Anderson flute instrumental masterpiece and has been a staple of live shows through the years. Back to the family is a nice little folk rocker that gains a rough edge from Martin Barres licks, and ending with a very tasty solo. Look into the Sun is another song i had never heard until I bought the album, and was shocked ive never come across it before. The unsung hero on this album for me. It just flows beautifully with great dual acoustic guitars. Side Two starts strong with another bluesy live favorite, Nothing is Easy. Fat man is another favorite totally underrated JT classic imo. The last three songs are more folk rock that we will see on Benefit and aqualung to follow. A very solid and consistent album that I will round up to a four rating.
