5 stars This is the Ian Anderson's journey around the world, the world of gods and beliefs. Each song is an evocation of a faith and is built like Classical Music with Celtic-European Folk influences but spiced with the feelings and the tastes of each visited country. For example « In Maternal Grace » has an obvious eastern asiatic sound (probably China), « In Sight Of The Minaret » is the encounter of the worlds of Sheherazade and Mozart, « En Afrique » (In Africa) is dedicated to animism with a strange but pleasant mixture of tribal and swing sounds, « In The Olive Garden » is the cross-roads of « religions of the Book » and « In The Moneylender's Temple » is a neo-classical piece in honour of the God of the Gods : Money. Until further notices only the last track « In the Times of India » shows an indian taste. So I can't agree with the last reviewer. But maybe we have not listen the same record . In conclusion, this journey is the very best of Ian Anderson. Music raised to his firmament. Great art, great flutes !
