    Agreed, but please don't argue with progmonster too much or he will start listing all the best and worst Tull songs in each year and how all the bonus tracks are better than most of the tracks that...

    Overexposure isn't just related to classic rock radio playlists (does anyone here listen to FM anymore?). For me its more due to so many tracks from this album being played at concerts over the...

    Roots to Braches is very good, but I agree suffers a little by running too long. This would have made for a great LP with a 45 minute run time and dropping a couple tracks. Similar problem with...

    Too Old is too often overlooked, I suspect mainly due to the title and cover artwork. Doesn't help that it was sandwiched between two of their best albums. It is at the bottom of Tull albums from the...

    I love Tull, but it's not worth it unless you get it cheap or are a completist. The remixes are dreadful, the redone tracks are nowhere near as good as the originals and while the live compilation...

    Yeah, it's good though I still prefer SLOB (what a horrible acronym, BTW) over TAAB2, though it's about on par with Rupi's Dance. I really consider it more of a Tull album though.
