It's not all strident either, 'Dun Ringil' is as beautiful as anything on 'Songs From the Wood' and the closing instrumental piece 'Elegy' is simply delightful. Indeed, there are so many great songs here, long time fans will particularly enjoy 'Orion' and 'The Flying Dutchman'.
It's time to replace that old vinyl, or to get to know a lost Tull classic.
Here you will find driving but always melodic rock alternating with gentler acoustic numbers, some with subtle orchestral backing that complements but never overwhelms the songs. A number of the songs display concern for environmental issues long before it became fashionable to do so.
This reissue includes bonus tracks including the single "A stitch in time" which, though worth having, were previously released on the "20 years of Jethro Tull" box set released in 1988; however since that box set is now only available at an extravagant price, this is the most sensible way to get these tracks nowadays.
Few people would suggest this as the album to start off a Tull collection with "Aqualung", "Songs from the Wood" or even "Thick as a Brick" being the likely candidates, but frankly I think a newcomer to Tull could do much worse than choose this as their starting point.
After this album there was a major shake up in the Tull line up with only the faithful Martin Barre on guitar remaining with Anderson for the next album "A" and Tull never sounded the same again; you could argue they never sounded this good again.
