3 stars After the previous two long song albums, THICK AS A BRICK and A PASSION PLAY, Tull returns to a more traditional song approach with this release, WAR CHILD. While not a terrible album by any means, this has not garnered the praise of other works of this phase of TUll such as MINSTRAL IN THE GALLERY and SONGS FROM THE WOOD. And this is because it fallsshort in many ways. SOome great tunes are present here- "Warchild", "Skating away...", and "Back Door Angels". The rest I find either boring ("Sealion") or too short "Only Solitare". Nothing here really stands out as a Tull classic, except possibly "Skating Away.." or "Bungle in the Jungle", which receive a lot of greatest hits/concert performances. The album is not poor, just uninspired. An average Tull effort. 3 stars.
