I agree about this being Martin's heaviest album. Aqualung is probably second. Too Old... was a very different animal. Some heaviness returned on Songs From The Wood. Pibroch (Cap In Hand) is also a top 10 Tull song for me.

This is the best string arrangement on an album full of them. Again, one of their very best acoustic tracks. Just beautiful.
