1.0 out of 5 stars That Difficult 15th Studio Album, 1 July 2006
This review is from: Under Wraps (Audio CD)
Out of all the Jethro tull albums in existence this has to be the most Un-Jethro Tull one of the lot. Yes I know it's all very clever keyboard related stuff, but it sits horifically uneasily within the back catalogue as a whole. I can remember thinking that 'A' was worrying, but Under Wraps seemed to throw the Jethro Tull rule book out of the window completely. If you are like me and into the more rustic and earthier side of Jethro Tull, then this is not the album for you. In fact the only really good thing that I can say about it is that it is a good album to provoke contoversy, in-depth conversations and debates amongst Tull fans the world over. That is I suppose a good thing as it gets people talking together. The track 'Under Wraps 2' does offer some acoustic and lyrical comfort though, but is far too short to rescue the album from its sore thumb and overblown eighties keyboards status. Never forget though, that despite what I've said, it's still a Jethro Tull album and all Jethro Tull fans should own a copy so as to show support. However, Whether or not you choose to have it on display to visitors is another matter.

I think it's fantastic......Tull are a product of their time and environment. Underwraps is exactly that.

I wonder why "all Jethro Tull fans should own a copy so as to show support". Would Ian Anderson accept payment in counterfiet coin? Or more prosiacally, would you tip a waiter for poor service? Having said that, I actually don't think this is a bad album - I far prefer it to 'Aqualung' (which, when it came out, was for me the biggest musical disappointment I had then experienced - 'Benefit' had been musical perfection in my young ears). But Anderson's lyrics remain largely poor.
