Jethro Tull are a band that requires no introduction, being one of the most recognizable progressive rock band out there. This album marks an interesting change for the band, as they shifted from a progressive rock style to an electric folk sound mixed with elements of hard rock and progressive rock. It is initially weird, but once things settle in with "Cup Of Wonder", the album becomes pretty easy to get into. With the classic "Hunting Girl" and the strangely catchy "Ring Out Solstice Bells", the band carves a further niche into the album, providing a lot of variety through acoustic guitar, audible bass, flutes, piccolos, and effectively subtle drumming. Perhaps the best instance of these instruments working together is on the eight-minute track "Pibroch (Cap In Hand)". Surely, Jethro Tull showcased throughout their career that they can play a wide spectrum of rock music, and this record is easily one of the most important and strong pieces of evidence to substantiate that claim.
