This album was supposed to be a solo album by Ian Anderson but due to pressure to complete the next Tull album the rest of the band were brought in to finish it off so it could be released as a Tull album.

    And I think it works really well as a follow-up to Stormwatch even though it wasn't planned as Tull. That album's looking to the impending end of the world; and here things feel all mechanized and post-apocalyptic, space travel and so on. Spot-on progression.

    Great to see nothing but good vibes and appreciation here. I don't think this was a drop-off from the '70s work in anything except Barriemore Barlow's (admittedly heavily-felt) absence. Ian was in terrific form in 1980.

    Much better than its reputation. "Crossfire" is especially good. I'll agree with those who say Under Wraps is mostly a failed experiment but I'll defend A as a quality record.

    This album has really bad reviews and critics all over the Internet, but this is great! Not as good as Aqualung or TAAB, but this is not a bad album.

    Was expecting a Tull in decline on this on, but it's actually really good. There's no track on this, which aren't great. Not their best, but quite up there.

    Not quite as terrible as I recalled it to be. Still far from their best.
