3540. Jethro Tull - Farm on the Freeway

From: Crest of a Knave; Year: 1987; Genre: Progressive Rock
Farm on the Freeway is one of the handful of tracks that sound very similar to Dire Straits; a lot of it was the focus on Martin Barre's clean guitar playing and Ian Anderson having to sing in a lower register. However, the musicality, dynamics, and subject matter are also pretty close as well. All in all this is a very good song and would stand out more if it wasn't surrounded by so many great tracks on one of their better records.

Hear Farm on the Freeway on YouTube.
