Select three Tull albums you think demonstrate the greatest audio engineering accomplishment from Tull and their studio recording teams over the years.
Some things to listen for: 1) clear overall definition and separation of instruments/vocals in the mix 2) rich tonal quality throughout 3) excellent balance of volume with instruments/vocals; everything's available to the ear, things aren't smothered out by instrument volume oversight in the mixing stage 4) use of reverb or sound effects handled expertly 5) no excess compression noticeable; sounds naturally spacious, all considered 6) disregard tape hiss on albums, as that was often a technological limit that Tull would have no control over.

The overall sound of Crest of a Knave is triumphant compared to the previous three studio releases. Also, it sounds better than Roll With It, by Stevie Winwood (who won the grammy for Best Engineered Recording). I suspect it's because Winwood is much more appreciated and socially accepted than Tull. Instead of giving them the best heavy metal performance, they could have given the best engineered recording, instead.
So as you push off from the shore, Won't you turn your head once more And make your peace with everyone? For those who choose to stay, Will live just one more day To do the things they should have done. And as you cross the wilderness, Spinning in your emptiness: You feel you have to...pray.

fluteinthegallery: If I had to put my love for Tull in to one word, it would be "everything". This band means everything to me.

steelmonkey: I would agree. I love music, I love rock and roll but my love for Tull is it's own category and bigger than the other two,

snaffler: I haven't listened to anything as refreshing for decades (re Jethro Tull), as a couple of recordings of Martin's 50th Anniversary US tour! The songs sound so reinvigorated by Dan Crisp's vocals. I saw Martin last year and the vibe in the band seemed great
