5.0 out of 5 stars DANCE WITH THE WARCHILD - HOORAH!, 28 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Warchild (Audio CD)
When other Progressive Rock Giants fell by the wayside and/or changed direction, JETHRO TULL never changed, they continued to release thought provoking conceptual Prog Rock, that's why they're so revered. Their productivity and creativity throughout the 1970's can't be equalled by any artist from any genre. So how on earth do you choose a favourite album from such a rich back catalogue?, you can't, it's like choosing your favourite child, there's so much to love about them all. 1974's WAR CHILD though is much overlooked, in the mainstream, other Tull albums are far better known, this has always been a mystery to me because WARCHILD is right up there with the best of them. Maybe it was overpowered by it's predecessor the bewildering and complex Magnum Opus PASSION PLAY. Nevertheless WAR CHILD is a stand alone work, with the usual concept running through it, a far more easier listen than PASSION PLAY, a more intimate whimsical tale with the usual biting dry humoured lyrics. The CD also has seven bonus tracks on it all worthwhile, the restrictions of vinyl prevented these songs being on the original LP. If your a TULL fan you already own this, if your thinking about buying a TULL album for the first time, then WAR CHILD is the perfect place to start. "WAR CHILD" by JETHRO TULL was another Immense album Outstanding Ability, by Craftsmen of their Art. It certainly is up there with THICK AS A BRICK and SONGS FROM THE WOOD. A must buy CD.
