5 stars This is not what I would have expected from Ian Anderson at all however it is very pleasant, beautiful in parts. It is a kind of hybrid involving Classical / New Age / World Music. Anyone expecting a Jethro Tull flavor here will be sorely mistaken. I have a kind of love / hate relationship with classical music. The inspiration for the music was spirituality and hence the title of the album. This is not background soul music at all and should be played loud and joyously. With Anderson the lead instrument is obviously the flute and damn can this guy play it. It isn't for everyone but for those with a classical music leaning should break someones arm to get hold of it. I award this album a very clear 4 stars for what it is and on any site other than a prog rock music site I would happily go the full 5. Hell I'm in fact going to go the whole hog here, such was my suprise with this Anderson release.
