4 stars Informative but partial overview of Tull carreer, based around a concert filmed in Brussels (I believe) mixed with some footage of the original line-up reformation. That concert was as good as any to film and show your typical Jethro Tull concert of the 90's and now.

The tracks done that night are for the majority pre 80's stuff but ranges also to the more recent albums such as Roots to Branches (easily the best Tull studio album since Heavy Horses) and even .Com. Most classic songs are rearraranged to meet new requirements but are never de-natured, mostly staying true to the original but providing an enjoyable alternative.

The tracks from the original line-up are a bit of an anecdote and do not provide the expected shivers down the spine. There are two acoustic tracks filmed in a salon with a string quintet or quartet also interupting the concert sequence, while beautiful buit also anecdotical.

Still worth a view but I am waiting for the DVD of the Bursting Out era, that I once saw on TV around the end of the 70's.
