4 stars An adventurous and fun listen, I think Tull shows their best on this album. Highly imaginative and energetic, to listen to this album is pure joy. You'll be tapping your feet along in no time. This is the definitive prog folk album. Although some disagree as to Tull's listing as a folk band, this is the closest to a perfect prog folk album in my opinion.

Anderson's vocals are powerful and moving, and the dynamic play of the band is tight and cohesive. It's a truly enthralling listen. There are a few sections that I am not too fond of, specifically the end of Pt 1, but there's too much good material on this record to be listened to.

This is a milestone in the field, a necessary part of every music listeners collection. Tull's signature album. Wonderful layered melodies with those quirky and intelligent lyrics.
