Product Overview

Originally released in 1979, the moody and sometimes dark tone of Stormwatch reflected the troubled state of the world economy at the time. Stormwatch marked an end of an era in Jethro Tull's history, as it was the last album on which several longtime band members participated. Now digitally remastered, the album features 4 new bonus tracks.

Very dark, brooding, and political is this last Tull release with the 1970's band lineup. Songs like "North Sea Oil," "Something's on the Move" and "Dark Ages" reflected Anderson's pessimism about the industrial world's future and ecological threats. Often considered the last of three successive Tull "folk rock" albums (others being "Songs from the Wood" and "Heavy Horses"), it is far more electric and less acoustical than its kin. The album, however, includes an acoustical fan favourite, "Dun Ringill."

Changes in personnel (yet again) brought forth this rather chilling record. Following the story of a world frozen over, this is a very wintry record from a band that always managed to inject some warmth into even the chilliest of topics. A very cold way to end the seventies. ~ James Chrispell
