The below paragraph would make sence only to people who have heard the first album (Taab1), for the rest just take my word for it the First album is a masterpies of progressive rock.
Generally follow up albums or (Part2) type albums don't go down very well, more typical for concept albums. The trend is similar for movies as well.
But what we have here is a very good follow up that does not try to be better or different, but is a perfect continuation of the first album.
There are references to the original album, but these are very subtle.
On the whole the music is very much what you expect form A Jethro Tull album , very folk rock along with some catch electric jams.
Ian Anderson shins on the flute, and the arrangement is very precise.
Martin Barre is not featured here(actually the fist ever Jethro Tull album without Barre).
But this task is accomplished very well by Florian Opahle, the very young and talented guitarist from Ian Anderson Live group.
On the whole a very worthy follow up.
If you are familiar with Taab1, then surely listen to this
If you have not heard Taab1 , listen to that fist and then enjoy this one.
Ian Anderson extends a much-beloved seventies prog-rock classic, albeit without any other member of the band that recorded the original. He has admitted to succumbing to a "Roger Waters moment", which is not really a problem, since in the eyes of most fans, he IS Jethro Tull. The sequel is pretty damn good as a stand-alone piece. Just don't compare it to the original. The playing is top-notch, and Anderson's voice sounds better than it has in many years. Which makes the abundance of voice-modifying tonal filters in the album seem a bit strange.
