2 stars More of the same, pretty much, as Crest Of A Knave. Perhaps slightly better with a bit more vigour and balls, pardon the pun. Rock Island had the potential to be a lot better than the ratings suggest yet JT have never really returned to a rich vein of form as far as studio albums go since Heavy Horses from 1978. In saying that if you are a Tull completionist then Rock Island will be right in there amongst it peers. " Heavy Water", " Ears Of Tin" and " Whale Divers" offer some sanctuary from mainly a sterile work so unless you are looking for a down buzz or a completionist of their work try some earlier material out instead.Two stars at a push.
