5 stars The eighties. It's time to your favorite prog bands sound stoopid. But 1980's "A" (from Anderson) is the proof that a great musician could use the current "new" effects to make the music even more complex. "A" is one of my favorite Jethro Tull albums, and is one of the most detailed works from the band. It's very progressive, the most progressive and technical album since A Passion Play. It start as an Ian Anderson solo album, because of the missing band members, but it easily became a Tull album.

It's very easy to understand why this album is so hated. A prog-folk band lands into the futuristic music concept territory, featuring hardcore keyboards, synth and use of fxs. The technologic sounding and sci-fi soundscape makes the album very enjoyable. I can highlight any track because I like the whole album. IMO, the last two tracks are made for prog-folk Tull fans that really doesn't want to open their minds and realize the art from "A". The prog-fok atmosphere actually escapes from the album genre in those tracks, but it's fine anyway.

VOTOMS | 5/5 |
