3 stars The "Heavy Metal" category winner of a Grammy. ???? Well, fortunately most rockers know better than the Grammy voters. This is an okay album, but I think it may be the lost DIre Straights album. Ian's voice has seen better days by this release, and the songs and music have a real Dire Straights feel to them. Not a bad thing, but it takes the Tull feeling away for me. Good songs: Steel Monkey, Farm on the Freeway, and Budapest. The rest of the disc is very average for me. Mountain Men starts great but just peters out and never really goes where it could have. Much of the material seems like filler, which, unfortunately, seems to be the norm for the next few Tull releases. It's not Heavy Horses, but at least it's not Catfish Rising! 3 stars. Average Tull that feels like an Ian Anerson solo release.
