3 stars Nice album! In the beginning of the 80's, Jethro Tull turned to a more commercial kind of prog, and that's because of the use of electronic instruments and it resulted in a more simple songs, but the progressive music of JT still remains unique! And there's one more reason to it and only on this album: the presence of the famous keyboardist/violonist Eddie Jobson as a special guest. After a "classic golden era" in the 70's , the music is a little bit soft and the voice of Ian remains gentle and pleasant. The rhythmic section is ok, but the use of electronic sounds made by synthesizers put the mark. Overall, a good prog album of a cult prog rock band. Songs to be mentioned: Flyingdale flyer" , "Working John, working Joe", Black Sunday", the instrumental "Pine martin' Jig" and the nice final song "Still further on..." 3 Stars!!!
Sachis | 3/5 |
