1 stars Maybe one of rock's biggest catastrophe happened well before Tull and The Who tried to translate their arts to film (but theirs were mostly financial problems), ISB made the first real blunder, and to top it all of, it was for their new label Island to pick up the bill. Indeed, I have rarely seen such a disastrously boring and irritating film than this interminable "ode to their pastoral ideals" aptly named Be Glad For The Song Has No Ending, (indeed it is overstaying its welcome by a good 90 minutes), with atrocious and really sub- par songs to go along. If you haven't seen the movie, picture the short already catastrophic footage of Jethro Tull's Hare Who Lost His Spectacles and remove whatever Monty Python absurd humour you find in it, modify the images from silly to gritty and sombre. Take the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour film, take out whatever good songs you'll find in there and replace them with semi-dissonant growls and pluckings, take whatever few action there is in MMT and divide it by a factor of 100, and you'll get an idea of what this catastrophic film is all about. And to nail the coffin shut, they suckered the fans into buying the soundtrack.. Stayaya awayayayay from this one.
