3 stars A quite enjoyable album.

A modernized rocksound, with lots of room for the heavy guitarsound of Martin Barre. The songwriting is excellent. The album sounds fresh and the production is crystal clear. This is one of the albums wich doesn;t feature extra long songs.

The synths that Peter John Vettesse provides are in contrast to the acoustic guitar and flute of Ian Anderson, wich makes this album kind of unqiue. I can't think of any other band combining electronics, hardrock and folkrock like Tull. Maybe Barclay James Harvest and Moody Blues come close, but Tull is more heavy and youthfull.

I can't think of anything bad about this album. I love how Tull managed to stay important througout the eighties.

Kingsnake | 3/5 |
