3 stars Well, first of all, I do not find this to be a terrible album, as some do. Nor, is it a masterpiece of some kind of warped Folk-Rock-Electronic music. It nestles somewhere in the middle, I guess. There ARE some great songs here: "Working John , Working Joe", "Black Sunday", "4WD", and "And Further On". There are also some real dogs- "Batteries Not Included", "Uniform" come to mind. A represents a big change from what was beginning to be a repetive pattern after "Stormwatch" which fell far short of it's older sisters "Songs From the Wood", and Heavy Horses". With personnel changes came sound changes. This album reminds me a lot of the Ian Anderson solo effort which came out, I believe, around this time. In lining this up in the pantheon of Tull, I would say it falls somewhere around Crest of a Knave and somewhere just above Too Old to Rock and Roll. Good, not great. Different, but still recognizable as Jethro Tull. 3 stars. If it had another "Black Sunday" song, maybe 4. On the cheap, this is worth getting just for that one tune.
