Hmmm.

 

Looks like it tells the story of the Norse Eddas?

 

I'll give it a listen, but I have a bias against the Jethro Tull cosplay Ian Anderson does these days. If his rationale for severing ties with some longstanding collaborators was that he wrote all the music anyway, then why not call this latest iteration the Ian Anderson Band? To sucker people into listening or buying, perhaps? Cynical, that.

And what's with the Motley Crue school of umlauts? If the second word is supposed to be "flute" then that would make the first word "rouk." Or if it's "rock" then the second thing would have to be "flawt." Unsightly.

Wouldn't it be more accurate to name the band Ian Anderson & Friends ?   :wink:

It is more of a solo project these days with the TULL name attached. Ian should bring back Martin Barre if he wants more of TULL construct. Maybe even get Barriemore Barlow out of mothballs as well.

Here's a good song title for Ian Anderson to use on a future "Tull" album ....

 

'No Barre No Tull'

 

.... you're welcome Ian.

I might take a very leisurely approach to buying this album, ie I'll probably buy it in September or something...

Yeah, same. Any Ian band called Jethro Tull has to include Barre at a bare minimum.

I'll take a listen first before committing to any purchase!

No, not bad. I'm just relieved he didn't shoehorn that title to scan into the lyrics!
