    Yes, the production on Homo Erraticus is too precise--there's too much air, there's too much room to roam, decisions that diminish the impact of the music --but the contours of the compositions deliberately and delicately recallclassic Tull, so Homo Erraticus winds up satisfying: it's as close to '70s prog as is possible in 2014.

    The themes that combine to create this opus are also suitably sprawling, with subjects that touch upon key events and cultural touchstones essential to British history.

    These tales of iron-age blacksmiths, 17th-century highwaymen and modern-day ecological disaster are brilliantly told, long on smart wordplay, but light on tunes. [Jun 2014, p.103]
