4 stars I regard it as a tragedy for Jethro Tull as well as Mick that he had to leave the band, for they were never the same force again creatively. The recording craft improved - anything involving Ian Anderson would be beaten into submission sooner rather than later, but the live performances, though grandoise and great fun, never carried that same authenticity as it did when Mick was around.

A genuine original, Mick vents his spleen here to good effect, showing what a great guitarist he is, and some great vocals too. It's the writing that suffers, it's not really his forte, his eccentricities shine through too much to make sense to the rest of us more than fleetingly, but it's all great fun. Never could understand the name though. Another weird Mick-take.
