From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Minstrel in the Gallery is one of the most underrated albums of all time. Even Ian Anderson doesn't seem to enjoy it quite a lot. Yet, it is a beautiful and even combination of progressive rock, folk rock, acoustic and electric music. Wonderfully played and produced, of course, like Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, and also just as cohese. There are no flaws in this album. All songs are great. The guitar work is among the best (if not the best) of Martin Barre's. Even though the songs are shorter, they still have changes in mood, time, speed, in a very organic way. A true overlooked masterpiece worthy of more careful listening, and one that summarizes perfectly Tull's sound and style.
