"whimsical renditions performed nicely, in my humble opinion. Not all rock-meets-classical projects are this well-conceived or executed.I enjoy it."

"A Classic Case had great potential. David Palmer, who had worked with the group for years, had expressed an interest in doing something really different with the music. Unfortunately, the record company tried to make it "more commercial" but having versions of popular, but unfortunately not very classically oriented songs put on the album. Aqualung, Locomotive Breath, and Living In The Past are great songs, to be sure, but they don't translate well into a classical enviroment. This is such a shame, because there are so many Tull songs that do. Flying Dutchman would have been beautiful, moths, requiem, My God, Velvet Green, or about half of the rest of Tull's songs would have been wonderful. However, I am giving this album 3 Stars because of 1 BRILLIANT track. Warchild is worth the price of admission. It is absolutely wonderful, sharing a lot with the original but at the same time being completely different. SOme other tracks, like Elegy, Too Old To Rock, and Fly By Night are quite good, but the "old standards" are almost painful. Especially Aqualung(*shudder*)"

"This is an example of how an orchestra can swing!David Palmer and Tull members shine on moving numbers like Elegy and Fly By Night.The symphonic treatment of Locomotive Breath and Aqualung is something special for Tull lovers to hear.Music lovers in general will really like this great sounding album."
