Right, Jethro Tull with a very 80s sound, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with the quality of most of the music. In fact its' admirable that Tull managed to make updates and keep up with the changes of time, while retaining the essence of Tull.
This album, like the Genesis albums of the early 80s is unfairly shunned by those who have a hard time accepting that artists need to make changes and update themselves.
It's actually a fine proggish album.

Oh man, this is what made prog rock great. You would never hear anything like this coming from MTV (I hope I have to change that statement!). Great musicianship, brilliant composition and insightful lyrics. Even though the tracks are about 20 minutes a piece, they never get boring (aside from one patch in part 2). Everyone must hear this.
