2 stars I have this and rarely listen to it. Maybe once a year? The songs on this album and the sound as well is similar to Rock Island but less memorable. It is almost as if Ian ANderson is going thru the motions here. There is little that catches interest here for me except This is Not Love, Tall Thin Girl, and WHen Jesus Came to Play. I enjoy the last number especially, although I feel it doesn't have a "finished" feel to it. The rest of the songs are filler to me. Nothing interesting, just simple quick Tull rock. The resemblence to Dire Straits which I see on Crest of a Knave continues here. I can not give this higher than 2 stars and that is probably the lowest for any Tull for me. And I have them all, even Under Wraps, which I listen to more than this.
