2 stars Overrated album! If "My God" and the title track are supposed to be the highlights in this album, i have to admit that i don't share this view. The opening song is perhaps their most famous work, but IMO it is very dry musically and doesn't work for me. While "My God" has "an awesome flute solo", an even more awesome flute solo can be found on Thick As A Brick, and the rest of the song is as dry as the opening one. For me, the good songs are the short ones here, since they show some actual emotion and passion which apparently is lacking on the rest of the disc. I admit the concept on the album is good, and IAN ANDERSON is a very smart lyricist, but musically this album doesn't give the "big punch" necessary to appreciate the concept and lyrics as well.

Credits go for the album cover which, in my opinion, together with the concept, are the only things that worked here.
