4 stars like many here, when I first bought this album, I didn't quite get it. I was looking for an album as heavy as the previous, Songs From The Wood. This one, on the surface, seemed much lighter. It took quite a few listens to fully appreciate the subtle complexity of the album. And it is now one of my favorite Tull albums.

While every track on the album is good, there are a few standouts. And The Mouse Police Never Sleeps seems to be a departure from the usual Tull style, with it's whirlwind themes, makes an excellent opening track. No Lullaby and the title track are both great examples of Tull's prog leanings, while also showing their folk rock roots at the same time.

Sure, it's not as great as Aqualung or Thick As A Brick, but how many albums are?

Evolver | 4/5 |
