Prog Reviewer
2 stars A step down from the preceding studio albums (Songs From the Wood and Heavy Horses), Stormwatch's recording sessions were set against the grim reality of John Glascock's ailing health. (Sadly, John died some months after the sessions were completed - though he does appear on three tracks, including album closer Elegy.) The souring of relations within the band as a consequence of the strain on all parties is well-documented, so the recordings capture a lineup on the verge of disintegration - and it seems that the music has suffered as a consequence. The band - and Anderson in particular - sound discouraged to an extent they hadn't since War Child or Too Old to Rock and Roll, and the usual Tull tricks seem to lack their sparkle this time around.
Warthur | 2/5 |
