3 stars "Despite the seemingly disconnected themes, "War Child" was planned as a movie soundtrack. The screenplay, loosely based on "A Passion Play," featured the afterlife experiences of a little girl killed during an auto accident. Anderson had gone so far as to enlist John Cleese, Sir Frederick Ashton, and Leonard Rossiter for the project before abandoning it, due mostly to unacceptable Hollywood production demands." - Jethro Tull official website.

Collectors/fans only. This is not goddamn bad, so... why? Most of the War Child material was recorded during A Passion Play sessions. Unfortunattely, is not so relevant as the same. Is a good album, but I only reccomend this one for who's already a fan. You have a loong album list that deserves a listen before War Child. I can't compare War Child with any previous album. This is the first non-awesome album from the band.
