2 stars JT's finest performance? I think not. This may be Anderson at his best lyrically, but besides that, I don't see the greatness that everyone else seems to find in this album. The melodies are trite and uninspiring for me. Every now and then Tull will hit their stride, but a majority of it is pretty dull. I'd like to see more progging here and less bluesing.

I'll take an example like a song like Cross Eyed Mary. It just is not really interesting, it never seems to go anywhere, it just kind of exists. Much can be said for the rest of the album, it's just kind of "there". Aqualung, My God, and Locomotive breath are the best tracks here, but even still, I feel like there is something missing. Tull would go on to write better things however, as such is the case for TaaB and A Passion Play.
