Prog Reviewer
4 stars Although I can't quite give it the five-star endorsement most of the other reviewers and raters have - there's just a few too many super-brief acoustic filler tracks, and the album slumps a little in the middle. But then again, that slump is from "excellent" to merely "good". Not, in any way, a concept album - the character sketches of the first side aren't really linked to the theological musings of the second, and both sides have several songs that don't fit those themes even slightly - but still a big step forward for Tull, with John Evan joining as a full member (and his keys play a major role in firming up the band's new sound). Not the band's absolute masterpiece, but a very strong beginning to their fully-prog era.
Warthur | 4/5 |
