4 stars Wow. I have no idea this album got and still gets so much dirt. The lyrics may be confusing, it may have more jazz influences, and have a darker tone, but aren't these elements common in prog albums? I personally view this as Tulls breakthrough album. It is the first to feature a synthesizer, and there is more sax and less acoustic guitar. The musicianships is also at its peak. Also, instead of complaining about the infamous 'hare who lost his spectacles' all I have to say is that depends what kind of sense of humor you have. If your into Monty Python, you'll realize that the sequence is to sound like an opening sequence to the show, with the animated animals. It definetely dosn't bug like dosn't a lot a of people. If if you hate monty python, the other music is so good you'll just have to skip it.
