3 stars This album always seemed to me like Jethro Tull was just going through the motions when recording it. Of course, Jethro Tull going through the motions is still better than many other bands' best efforts. If this were the only Tull album you owned, or one of a very few, it might sound new or fresh, but if you were a Tull aficionado, you would hear very little that they had not done before.

As usual, Anderson's lyrics are great. And there are a couple of standout songs. Something's On The Move is a fine upbeat rocker, and Dun Ringill with it's eerie vocal effects, makes it somewhat different from other Tull songs. On the other hand, I don't know what prompted Anderson to include a rare piece from another composer, keyboardisy/orchestrator David Palmer. His light classical Elegy is more appropriate for a supermarket or elevator than on a rock album.
