5 stars I am a huge Tull fan. All through the years, it seems like Anderson and friends keep popping out 2 album blitzes that are awsome. Aqualung/Thick as a Brick and Songs From the Wood/Heavy Horses, are the best 2 that come to mind. If it weren't for War Child and Too Old To Rock and Roll..they even could have spun out 6 or even 7 in a roll. But this album, along with it's companion Heavy Horses, is a monster of Folk Rock/Prog. If you love ProgFolk, I'm sure you own this album. It features one fine tune after another with not a weak spot from the acapalla of the opening number to the hard rocking of Pibroch to the winding down at the end of Fire at Midnight. You can see the success of this album by looking at how much of this was featured often in concert- Song from the Wood, Hunting Girl, etc.. The 2 bonus tracks on this release are interesting but I am glad they were not on the original album to diminish it in any way. 5 stars!
