4 stars Although prog bands were dying in droves with the onset of punk and greedy record moguls JT released a gem with Heavy Horses. For me there was no sign of their music waning in terms of quality and some of the songs on Heavy Horses are some of their best ever. From the riveting ' ..and the mouse police never sleeps'. The tightly woven melodies of ' Acres wild', the persistant pulsing of ' Journeyman' to the classic title track ' Heavy horses'. Why can't bands nowadays sing about real stuff like this. Well few could lyrically and musically. Heavy Horses is excellent and a very complete offering.
