3 stars Who else on this site could present a Christmas album quite like Jethro Tull? There is so much warmth, perfect for getting you into the festive spirit The songs are wonderfully arranged, some of them traditional covers with a creative and memorable twist such as "Holly Herald" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen". Sometimes hints of jazz mixed with Renaissance troubadors while still being very seasonal. But there are a few revamps on the album of old songs by Jethro Tull as well as some new ones, fitting though they are for the mood of the time of year, such as the insightful "A Christmas Song" and "Ring Out Solstice Bells". They are slightly updated and you may find that they have a nice place here. Of the re-recorded oldies, I like the version of "Bouree" the most. Very enjoyable music indeed, fans of Jethro Tull ought to have it at least, and actually it is good for anytime of year, even July! Ahem, though it might be a bit weird, the xmas period is best.
