Well Lags you talk copper plated bollox my friend.
If you actually read what Barrie has stated this is the reason why TAAB1 was special, band member input and chemistry.
Musiciains giving a FREE REIGN meant better END RESULT.
TAAB2 is not in the same league by a country mile.
True its 1 of Andersons best efforts in years (its 1 of his only efforts FFS).
TAAB2 is Mechanical ,lacking Passion and quite frankly its got some real rubbish on it.
The HAir Metal Guitar work doesnt even gel with the feel of the songs,which are all repetative versions of Valley,Beside Myself,Rock Island etc
As much as i Respect Ian ,his creative song writing dried up years ago.
It has only a few songs that 'could' have made decent Tull songs with Barre and Perry playing.
You say Barre has only done 1 great thing -Aqaulung.
Have you actually heard Crest Of A Knave (the last great Tull/Anderson) offering.
Its 90% content is Barre that makes the album so special,his guitar work is breathtaking .
There is NOTHING on TAAB2 that comes anywhere close.
This is the album Tull won a grammy for.
You clearly no NOTHING about guitar playing.
Anyway go put your Florian Shirt on im off for a LAGG.
I will also not insult Martin by asking if that is you, as has been asked of me.
You know I would say that you are an idiot, but that would insult idiots around the world.
Not called you Florian ,Lags my good friend
I would return the compliment but that lowers me to your level.
Ive read all Lags posts and the are deliberately antagonising and argumentative.
There is nothing constructive at all what he says.
You get people like this in life unforunately,they are best ignored,very sad
I think he is another former poster 'singe' who is no longer on here very similar grammar and post content.
Nothing wrong with discussing past vs present
Standards have been set by the once great Tull.
Ian is leaning very heavily on the past with his latest offering,fine by me but its got to live up to it or near as dammit,it dont i.m.o.
I stand by my comments re Barre,he is a True Genius on the guitar just as equally Ian is a true genius also.
Ian did not write Barres guitar parts for him.
Listen to some of the demos on utube especially Crest,they are just rough ideas that needed expanding by Barre and Peggs input etc
There would have been no great Tull music without Barre FACT!!!
This is a budget diluted version of the once great Tull FACT!!!
