In the wake of the bands' Epic era, when writing 15 minute plus songs were the norm, this release comes along with a slight twist, pretty average length songs, with a minor hit to offer with the title cut. The album cover shows characatured Ian Anderson flexing his left arm with fist firmly in grip showing a force of power, perhaps an indicator of the bands' intent with this record. This is one of those albums that I like, but maybe not love nearly as much as some others by the band. Yet again, considering the bands full output, I have to give it just a bit of a higher ranking apart from many others simply because I love this line-up of the band, this era of JT's music will always be at the top as having Barlow, Palmer, Evans, and Glascock, as well as the staples of Barre and Anderson of course.
As with all Tull records, a nice balance of folk and rock, with many progressive elements, a few acoustic passages, and some pretty even writing. This is one of those that won't surpass fan favorites like TTAB, Aqualung, Minstrel, SFTW, HH or the like, but pretty darn good in it's own right.
