4 stars With you there to help me it probably will.

Jethro Tull is a band that has really grown into me these recent days, and Benefit has been a big contributor in the procedure. This album is like Genesis Nursery Cryme, or Yes Fragile. You really can't decide is it a total masterpiece or just under the bar. For me a total masterpiece consists only of tracks i want to listen to all the time. This is so far the only reason i can come up with to not give Benefit 5 stars.

The album offers very very much. There is the opening track, which for me ranks amongst the Jethro Tull greatest. Then there's fantastic tracks like "Inside", "Son" and "Teacher". I also like "For Michael" and "To Cry You A Song". This album just lacks the consistency that would show on the next album, and this for me is the main reason to give it "only" 4 stars.

On Benefit, Tull had taken the highroad, and the 70s would now be taken by storm and flute. A great album and a great introduction into 70s Jethro Tull. 4 Stars.
