Roots to branches from 1995 is the 19th studio album of this legendary band. released ina perios when JT suffers little bit in ideas, but keeping the good momements alive if not entirely on each album from the '90s some pieces are strong enough to save the albums. This release is better the previous work Catfish rising but to me is weaker the J-Tull. com. This has a more polished sound then previous work and has some more memorable pieces on it like Roots To Branches, Wounded, Old And Treacherous and This free will, the rest are ok. Anyway Martin Barres guitar work is exemplary like on every JT album, he is one hell of a great guitarsit, is one of my top 3 fav guitarists ever, he is the gear behind JT fame. This is an ok release after all, even I'm a big fan, and I mean big, I own almost everything they released minus singles, saw then twice live, and for sure is one of my fav bands ever, Roots to branches doesn't have that impact to the listner like '70s albums, is decent album but nothing is extraordinary or excellent. 3 stars rounded to 3.5 .
