Jethro Tull - War Child (1974)

Jethro Tull - War Child 

   Following classic progressive rock albums like "Aqualung", "Benefit" and "Thick as a Brick" is no simple task but Tull sidestepped this by writing a lighter less aggressive album with War Child.    Originally intended to accompany a film, War Child is a fusion of prog rock and orchestration conducted by David Palmer.  

  In many ways this album shows another side of Jethro Tull...one less epic and less rock.  There are a few beauties on this album too like "Back-Door Angels", "Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of The New Day" and "Bungle In The Jungle".
