Ian Anderson, "Enter The Uninvited" Track Review

Your Bostocks Back

Your Bostocks Back

So Ian Anderson and his imaginary BFF Gerald Bostock are back in a new album entitled Homo Erraticus.  Bostock hasn’t been around since Thick As A Brick and TAAB2, but he returns for a new adventure.

That adventure is exhibited here in a lyric video. According to Kscope Records the album is more than just a bundle of sound. In Homo Erraticus Parritt examines key events of British history with a string of prophecies stretching to the current day and the future; visions of past lives caused by the delirium of malaria generate the characters through whose eyes the stories are told, including a nomadic Neolithic settler, an iron Age blacksmith, a Christian monk, a turnpike innkeeper and even Prince Albert.

Well, thats a whole lot to jam into  a platter but hey if you have the time. This three part epic may work for you.  As for the track in the lyric video below…”Enter The Uninvited” is an epic tale in itself.  Tull using his story teller voice rather than singing it out for us.  The musical interludes much reminiscent of Jethro Tull of days gone by.  It feels dated.  The lyrics seem comical. Nearly knights of Monty Python in its vibe.

That being said if you’re a mullet sporting guy who still has Frampton on your iPod and is attempting to restore your old Chevelle- you’re gonna love it.  If you’re a nostalgia fiend, such as I- same.  As much as I have just mocked this tune it is true Ian Anderson.  You’ll adore the flute interludes the ‘epic-ness’ of the song and the truly well planned layers of near orchestra effect.

But this sure as hell wont make it to the radio.
