3 stars I must admit. When this album was first released, I was one of those who bought it, listened to it a few times, and filed it away in the record collection, rarely to listen to it again. Maybe my tasets have matured, but while it's dtill not one of my favorites, I do enjoy listening to it once in a while.

There are some very good songs on this album (although none are five star material to me). The title track, Crazed Institution, Big Dipper and Quizz Kid all spark my interest. On the flip side, From A Dead Beat To An Old Greaser and The Chequered Flag (Dead Or Alive) are about as maudlin as any Tull songs.

And if Ian Anderson didn't want people to think he wrote the concept album about himself, pehaps he should have instructed the artist who drew the comic strip in the sleeve to not make it look like him.

Evolver | 3/5 |
