4 stars In Benefit Jethro Tull went to a harder and darker feel with a growing cynism in Ian's song- writing. The band is now joined by Mr John Evan, the keyboard player from that John evan Band from which Tull had metamorphosed two years previously. he made it clear he would only work with JT for a year or two a the most, but he remained (thanks God) for the next ten years. Sadly Benefit it's the last for Glenn Cornick, gone to form Wild Turkey. The best songs in my opinion are With You There To Help Me (with the famous back-played flute intro), To Cry You A Song (of which there's a great cover performed by Hughes in the tribute album Magna Charta-A Collection Of Tull Tales) and the powerful Nothing To Say. In the Chrysalis 2001 remastered edition are found the excellent 1970 singles Teacher and the acoustic The Witch's Promise coupled with the nice Just trying To Be and Singing All Day.

A great album, but not one to start with... It's better Stand up as a beginning... anyway 4 stars are the right pay to Ian Anderson and company!!
