Modern era Tull,
This review is from: Crest of a Knave (Audio CD)
I bought this album originally on tape while on holiday in Turkey and after a few plays it went all wobbly.I bought it initially out of curiousity as I'd heard a track off this album on a compilation and from then on I was hooked. This isn't typical Tull. Anderson had been flirting with new technology for a number of years and the sound can be described as possibly a cross between ZZ Top and Dire Sraits. It's a very accessible album but notable still for Anderson's quirky lyrics and ear for a great tune especially 'Waking Edge' and 'Said She Was a Dancer'. If you want a good introduction to Anderson buy this but it is by no means indicative of 70s Tull. And yes, I bought it on cd when I got home!
