4 stars The first and only album i've got by Jethro Tull, which is unfortunate because i'd like to get more just haven't got round to it. The cover is the main reason I bought it i thought it was the most striking (at least out of the ones in the store) with the strange goblin (looks a bit like Ian Anderson I think then again most of the covers I guess are based on him) holding the broadsword and the crazy brown head frame.

I love the songs, all of them even the bonus songs are really good (I was pleasantly surprised as they are usally just live songs or crappy demos) Favorite songs are Beastie, Broadsword (with its canny good solo in it!), Pussy Willow, Seal Driver. Also the bonus songs Jack-a-lynn, Mayhem Maybe, Overhang and Down at the End of Your Road.

I'm really looking forward to exploring the rest of this band's discography as this album only has an overall rating of three. Alas I give this album a wholehearted 4 stars
