This is actually pretty decent, the vocals aren't good, but not to the extent that I couldn't look past it. I think what a lot of later JT and Anderson solo needs are some more developed and grittier drum parts. It's just really metronomic without much groove.

On a scale of 1 to 10 it's a meh.

I've stuck on the JT/IA train for this long, I'm not going to stop now.

I had a good laugh at "their first new material in 18 years"...as if there's an actual band called Jethro Tull now, instead of just Ian Anderson and a bunch of hired hands.

Hard pass after hearing the selected song...there's too much new music to discover without exhuming groups that peaked (in this case) 43-years ago.

^ exactly. I don't know why anybody gets excited about classic bands releasing mediocrity. Sure these bands have the right to do what they want but the music scene has moved on and they no longer have what it takes to craft creative competent albums.

Not bad, but not excellent either. I prefer the Martin Barre Band to be honest, way more exiting, inventive and entertaining.

Yep. Many ageing artist seem to forget some very vital parts about what makes music interesting and engaging. A shame really. The song itself - or the songwriting, isn't bad.

I prefer Smell the Glove. Although due to the controversial cover there were only 5 albums released. Mine is kept locked in an old outhouse at a family cottage in the Greater Georgian Bay area.
But, I do have these.

I'd say the Spinal Tap's Stonehenge is a "stone" cold classic and the track and film scene is more entertaining than, well, lots of great stuff. I love Spinal Tap and Stonehenge is terrific I think.

As for the JT track. I could imagine it being very good with some changes (including time signature changes), but it ended up sounding very monotonous/ plodding.
