4 stars Broadsword, in my opinion, is as strong as any Tull album in it's own way. Though gone are the epics (as seem to be favoured by many Tull fans in the PA), but what you get instead are tighter songs that get to the point and won't beat you over the head with the same motif for 15 minutes. The songwriting and musicianship are as good as ever. All of the Tull elements that you know and love are to be found here. Soundscapes are rich and there is cohesion in the songwriting and execution. IMO, there are no stinkers here. Those who admire Songs From the Wood (and maybe not A Passion Play or Thick As A Brick) should not hesitate to give this a listen.
