Not unlike the protagonist, Too Old To Rock ‘n’ Roll certainly seems like a bit of an anomaly in Jethro Tull’s catalogue. Released at the time that Ian Anderson penned some of his most ambitious output and reveled in lengthy, multifaceted compositions, the straightforward, predominantly hard-rocking tunes of Too Old To Rock ‘n’ Roll certainly sound out of place. Jethro Tull sounds much more showy and self-confident than ever before on songs like the sanguine Pied Piper and the genuinely heavy Taxi Grab, and, unlike the somewhat ill-fated War Child, it never sounds forced. At the least, it proves that Jethro Tull, then nine years old, sure as hell wasn’t too old to rock ‘n’ roll. Recommended Songs: The Checkered Flag (Dead Or Alive) Salamander Too Old To Rock ‘n’ Roll, Too Young To Die Pied Piper.
