Prog Reviewer
4 stars Heavy Horses gives its material a harder, rockier edge and a more troubled and cynical lyrical bent than the comforting yarns of its predecessor, but neither of these shifts in approach change the overall impression that it's a collection of material which didn't make the cut for Songs From the Wood. Still, Songs From the Wood was such an excellent album that even its off-cuts are impressive! Opening with the whimsical cat and mouse tale of The Mouse Police Never Sleeps - with spooky vocals and some of Ian's most hard-rocking flute work since the band's early days - the album takes the listener on another folk-prog trip. As usual on Tull's heavier albums, Martin Barre's electric guitar is a particular treat.
Warthur | 4/5 |
