5 stars Ok, this is the best Tull album IMO. In the year when punk broke we got from Jethro Tull an autstanding album. From the first title track to Fire At Midnight we have the best prog folk you can imagine. Title track is one of Tull's standard. Starts with chorus, then after a while it speeds a little bit. Jack-In-The-Green recorded by Ian Anderson is a normal Tul song, but with great lyrics ("I saw some grass looking through the pavement today") Cup Of Wonder - great melody. Hunting Girl, very folky with a dark feeling. Ring Out Solstice Bells is the only momnet when this lp is going down. This is a Christmas song with not much too offer. Although it's great to listen to it on Christmas Eve. Velvet Green is my favourite on this album. Beautiful song which compares all the best Tull moments. Then we have The Whistler, a very folky track with great flute section. Pibroch is a song, in which guitar plays the main riff, and it's very strange for Jetro Tull. And at least Fire At Midnight. It was included on Tull's Christmas album, but I think it's a love song:) Masterpiece.
