For anyone else a great album for Tull average
on 15 October 2002
This was one Tull album I just never bought into, there was just no engagement with it, it came from that dire musical period when the Stones produced Black and Blue, Deep Purple produced Come Taste the Band etc etc. All OK albums by great artists. The remaster is good cleans it up no end making it quite bright and open but it still doesnt grab you. Perhaps its too slavish to the story but theres the lack of the usual layers and puns in the lyrics. The extra tracks have been previously released but are good to have in context though the sleeve notes are still less than informative!
