3 stars Another controversial album by JT. Where Warchild and Minstrel held up, this album indeeds strays into newer territory. Perhaps too early for more widely accepted albums like Songs from The Wood and Heavy Horses. The irony is times were a-changing yet those albums defied the whole punk scene revolution and held up well. Yes too early before notable damning of progressive music and listeners expected much more." Quiz Kid" is largely the usual JT formula. " Salamander" is a great song not disimilar to Roy Harper ( Also on Prog Folk) and a collaborator with Ian Anderson too. Lovely rythm and flute exchanges. Some nice jazzy sax on " From A Dead Beat To An Old Greaser", unfortunately the lyrics don't convince too well and are arguably slanderous. The well known title track is definitely one of the highlights. Overall a good album. The only down side it is very hard to take too seriously becuase of the lyrics which constantly smack of Ian Anderson take the p*ss. Still a worthwhile three star rating.
