4 stars Excellent album. I say this because all the tracks are excellent, there's no a weak one. You can't get bored with this. I mean...... this is the "experimental" Jethro Tull because it has different genres: jazz, blues, classical music and stuff but without losing the sound that made them famous. This is a nice place to start with the band. It has two live songs that were recorded on a 1970's show. Those are amazing. "By Kind Permission Of" is a piece of classical music with John Evans on piano and Anderson in the flute. I think it is a relaxing song. It finishes with all the intruments. "Dharma for One" it's another very good song with an unhuman drum solo by Clive Bunker (it blows my mind every time I hear it). "Love Story" it's a rock song but with Jethro style, it's different. "Christmas Song" it's an acoustic piece, very good one. "Living in the Past" it's one of the Jethro's classics. "Driving Song" it's a "heavy" track, very cool : "ta na na na na na na na na na........." "Singing all Day" it's a very good jazzy song. "Life is a Long Song" it's a beautiful acoustic track. Well, this album it's a good introduction to Jethro Tull and an excellent addition to any prog music collection.
