5 stars Ok, this isn't a Tull album. Because Tull are a band that codified the perfect mix between Blues, Folk and Hard Rock (heavy Rock). This is a sort of Rock Opera. That isn't a bad idea... But that for a non Tull fans isnt good. The Hard (Heavy) Folk Prog of Tull is totally missing in this album and is totally missing the Flute of Ian Andreson. But I think that these brave choice indicate that the tull is totally immersed in the 70's musical scene, to cost to conceive a brave but incomprehensible album. The point of forces of this album is that is a Rock Opera because I think that the Tull aren't capable to wrote one or two suite and the conception of a Rock Opera is good for To mask this fact and to project the Tull to the writing and playing the more Prog album of their discography. Today this album play like out-of-date album. But the feelings and the beauty of "A Passion Play" are totally unchanged.
