5 stars This is my favourite Jethro Tull album. It was my first album from them, I first heard it when i was 15 or 16 and the melodies are engraved in my forever. There isn't a weak point on the album. And now, with the remastered edition, it sounds even better and louder! It has many colours, from politically conscious enviro-folk-rock through medieval/organ-filled epic with heavy metal breaks and nostalgic ballad to a beautiful, almost melodramatic ending. I am very sad that the finest Songs From The Wood-Heavy Horses-Stormwatch row had to come to an ending with the departure of several good musicians and the introduction of cheesy synthetizers. Dun Ringill and Orion still give me the chills even now, after many years. North Sea Oil and Something's On the Move still get me to play my "air-drums". Elegy still depresses me and cheers me up at the same time. As the track Home says - this is a record for me to get home now and then... Eleven stars out of ten.
