5 stars Third JETHRO TULL album and their definitive affirmation as great progressive band ! While in " Stand Up" the Anderson's and company music still clearly influenced to jazz and the electric blues scenery and show a more heavy approach in their sound due to the introduction of Martin Barr''s guitars. In "Bennefit" they taken a more lyrical or bucolic direction. This become evident already in the First track " With You There To Help Me" (in my opinion one of the best Tull songs) the Anderson's flute sounds leading the audience to a "enchanted forest" where the flute seems imitates a "glow worm" flight. Another track with a special feature is the track 3 "Inside" with the Cornick's interesting bass arrangement which make the song "spins". The track 6 "To Cry You A Song " have a strong "riff" and is other classic Tull song. The album presents other grea tracks like, "Teacher" and "Nothing to Say" which are also detachable. In my vision in Tull's discography "Songs From The Wood" is the more close album in style in relationship with this one. My rate is 5 stars !!!
