4 stars A year after "Songs From The Wood", Jethro Tull came along with the cozy, symphonic "Heavy Horses". This one is still very much in touch with nature. It's a lot softer and not quite as compelling as the previous album but it's very heart-warming and it draws you in with it's silky sound, lulling vocals and another true feel of British folklore!

The first song "...And The Mouse Police Never Sleeps", gives you a taste of some nursery rhyme styled lyrics and it's quite humourous too! As well as songs about mice, there is "Moths" which is one of my favourites on the album. I also love the very melodic "Acres Wild". There are two epics on the album, "No Lullaby" and the great "Heavy Horses" Other highlights for me include, "Rover" and "One Brown Mouse" which is the most upbeat on the album.

This is a great album and very enjoyable indeed. It's very refreshing to know that it was released at a challenging time. Music was going through a lot of changes, but the Tull were still sounding good and as 'folkish' as ever.

Four solid stars.
