I've spent my free time over the last few days listening to AG's new album and I can report that, from my viewpoint, it is a great peice of work and a worthy addition to any Tull fan's music library and deserves a wider audience.
There are seventeen tunes in total, composed and played on keyboard/computer and with the programmes that are now available to musicians, AG has served up some wonderful sounds.
Three tracks stand out for me at this time.
"Still Water" is a moody atmospheric beauty of a tune and would have been a welcome addition to the Blade Runner soundrack. In fact I was half expecting Deckard to pop up at some point with some words of wisdom.
"The Doyles" is probably the nearest AG has got to a Tull inspired piece of music. The soundscape on this certainly has the feel of celtic Tull full of acoustic guitar/piano/flute/strings and the odd thunderstorm. It is amazing to me that it was all done on keyboards with the help of a Apple Mac.
The final track "Coming Home" is where AG rocks - beginning with a solo piano and gradually employing voices and more effects to finish the album on a superb rocking flourish of drums/strings/guitar/bass/kitchen sink etc.
I'd recommend this album to all Tull fans and heartily endorse it. It did strike me while listening to it that AG would have probably made a great job of Coronach back in '86 - now that's a thought for the future.
