Earthy, Soft, and Sleepy.

"This is a Jethro Tull that is often too overlooked by the public. Most would say that albums like Aqualung, Stand Up, or perhaps even Thick as a Brick would be the best introduction to Jethro Tull, but rarely does this album get its credit.
It may technically be a compilation album, but most of the songs on here you won't find on other Jethro Tull albums (although, nowadays with the bonus tracks, you just might, but it's not the same thing).
The album may very well be the most easily accessible of all of Tull's albums, especially because each and every song is undeniably a good one. The songs here produce an array of feelings and atmospheres that are earthy, gripping, soft, theatrical, serene, experimental, and sleepy.
Another cool thing about this album is that right in the middle of it, we have nearly 20 minutes of Jethro Tull being incredibly creative and playful on stage, and you can hear the crowd just loves it.
The album chronicles a very interesting, creative, free, and unique time in Tull's history, where Ian Anderson felt very open and inspired."
One of Tull's Best

"I have long been a fan of Jethro Tull, since I was a kid. It had been many years since I heard this one and it is excellent. Admittedly, Tull lost me after the album Storm Watch but the early work by Ian Anderson and Co, is true classic Rock. I rate this as not quite as good as Benefit, and a bit better than Passion Play and way better than the much of the rock music being made today."
