3391. Jethro Tull - Lap of Luxury
From: Under Wraps; Year: 1984; Genre: Synthpop/Electronic Rock
Jethro Tull was in town last night and I got to see them again; it was excellent. I haven't gotten to see a lot of concerts in recent years, so it was definitely a treat. I thought I would wrap up my early 80s pop/rock theme week with one of their songs.
This is one of the most "un-'Tull" songs and albums in their catalogue, and whilst it's definitely not one that a lot of fans of the band like, (quite a few revile this very "synthpoppy" album), on its own merit it's an okay album and definitely has its gems. If you've heard any songs off this album, a good chance it was Lap of Luxury; if you like keyboard synth and blazing lead guitars this one is right up your alley.

Hear Lap of Luxury on YouTube.
