5 stars The 21st century music of Ian Anderson has been pleasantly good (The Secret Language of Birds, Rupi's Dance, Jethro Tull Christmas Album, etc.), surprisingly good (Thick as a Brick 2) and now, incredibly good (Homo Erraticus). Homo Erraticus is truly a great rock record and harkens back to Tull rock classics like War Child, Minstrel in the Gallery and Stormwatch. Rock, in a progressive way as only Ian Anderson can do it. Each track is fresh, the story he tells is compelling and challenging, and the replays reveal more and more each time.

Tracks that you think are merely pleasing build up into rocking composites of multiple instruments, time signature changes, thrilling vocals and twisted lyrics. Great flute, organ/piano, harmonies, solid bass lines and powerful drumming. A thrill ride through history, Homo Erraticus is light/dark/heavy/gentle. It is all there.
