There are also a couple of ballads which, as far as I'm concerned, are miles above the more "intimate" numbers on Minstrel. I see no reason
Found this paragraph in your Too Old to Rock'n'Roll...etc review. There's a funny sentence fragment in bold:
From a Dead Beat to an Old Greaser should be seen as any less tender than Requiem, not to mention that this has a logical melody and a nice David Palmer saxophone solo to boot. And I definitely don't see how any Tull. And, man, if The Chequered Flag (Dead or Alive) isn't one of the most glorious odes to the power of great music to transcend time and mortality, especially with that beeeeautiful, low-key electric piano under the strings, then I just don't know what's what.
