Minstrel in the Gallery is the eighth studio album by British band Jethro Tull, recorded in April and released in September 1975. The album goes in a different direction from their previous work War Child (1974), with the orchestration being replaced by a string quartet conducted by David Palmer.

In February 1975 Jethro Tull sold out five nights at the 20,000-seater Los Angeles Forum, prompting the Melody Maker to run the headline Jethro – Now The World’s Biggest Band? Indeed the venues became so huge that by 1976 Tull had become one of the first bands to use giant screens for stadium shows – nicknamed Tull-A-Vision. Minstrel in the gallery. The album has been expanded to include the b-side Summerday Sands, several studio outtakes, and alternate session material recorded for a BBC broadcast

Minstrel in the Gallery – восьмой студийный альбом британской рок-группы Jethro Tull, выпущенный на лейбле Chrysalis 5 сентября 1975 г. в Соединённом Королевстве, и 8 сентября того же года – в США. Иэн Андерсон стал автором текстов песен, и их циничный стиль, вероятно, отражает его уныние после недавно пережитого развода с Дженни Фрэнкс, усталости от постоянных турне, а также самого факта записи альбома далеко от дома в Монте-Карло. В названии альбома имеется в виду пространство, отведённое для менестрелей в больших залах замков и поместий

Minstrel in the Gallery was Tull's most artistically successful and elaborately produced album since Thick as a Brick and harked back to that album with the inclusion of a 17-minute extended piece ("Baker Street Muse"). Although English folk elements abound, this is really a hard rock showcase on a par with - and perhaps even more aggressive than - anything on Aqualung

Текст песни: The Minstrel in the Gallery looked down upon the smiling faces. He met the gazes - observed the spaces between the old men’s cackle. He polarized the pumpkin-eaters - static-humming panel-beaters - freshly. The Minstrel in the Gallery looked down upon the smiling faces.

The term 'under-rated gem' is often an abused, over-used and undeserved descriptive. Many recordings that seem rather projective of future greatness or that contain one or two fleeting moments of inspiration are often categorized as such. The album also features one of the few best Jethro Tull acoustic guitar pieces, ‘One White Duck’. And, a claim at being one of the few best JT acoustic pieces is no small matter of boasting, because Ian Anderson has written some of the best work ever derived from the instrument. His approach to composing on the acoustic is one of the most unorthodox in the business.

Ian Anderson doesn't typically write about love. However, his divorce from Jennie Franks in 1974 put Ian into a sort of retrospective mindset. Ian apparently decided to simply write songs within the format of whatever he preferred; no grandiose, 45 minute long winding concept album, no handful of good songs cobbled together from a botched movie soundtrack, simply writing songs, whether they were three minutes or sixteen minutes long would be left to Ian's own accord. Utilizing his pained retrospective, Ian crafts a wonderful set of musings on love, divorce and his own position in the universe. Songs like Requiem (for his marriage), One White Duck and Summerday Sands sport absolutely beautiful lyrics, some of Ian's best, coupled with delectable acoustic guitar playing that gives the songs an almost ethereal quality to them. The abundance of the gorgeously arranged strings also helps give the album more of an emotional foothold. Ian also gives the band a chance to shine as well, the title track weaves through its hard rock passages effortlessly. The real gem of the album is Baker Street Muse, at sixteen minutes long, it alternates between hard rocking transitional passages to beautiful acoustic folk sections. My only gripe is the middle section of Black Satin Dancer, while the rest of the hard rock on the album feels structured, this just feels like aimless rocking until the band crashes into the last verse which actually is very beautiful. My favorite album from my favorite band, Minstrel in the Gallery is an incredible blend of acoustic guitars, lovely strings, and plenty of good old Tull rocking, ranking just a few notches below a flawless masterpiece.

I think it is deserving of a top 5 appearance on any list of Tull's finest through their extensive catalog. Anderson's compositional skills are at their finest on this record, and although it was crafted very much like an Ian Anderson solo recording, the band steps up superbly. What really blows me away is the playing of Jeffrey Hammond, who according to historic documentation, didn't know how to play his bass guitar. If that's the case and he just followed instructions, he was an amazing learner and student. Just listen to the title track for proof!

A STRONG ALBUM WITH A GOOD MIX OF FOLK AND ROCK WITH SOME AGGRESSIVE COMPOSITIONS HERE..THE TITLE TRACK IS A CLASSIC AND OFFERS A HEAVIER SIDE TO ANDERSONS WRITING AND THE GROUPS PLAYING...IN A SIMILAR VEIN THE ALBUM IS DIVERSE AND HOLDS YOUR INTEREST FROM START TO FINISH,,BAKER STREET MUSE AND REQUIEM ARE THE UNDOUBTED CO STARS WITH THE TITLE TRACK OF THE ALBUM BUT OVERALL ITS A RECORD OF IMPRESSIVE DEPTH AND QUALITY

The Jethro Tull sound, fully realized in all its glory on the album, can indeed make for an often enjoyable listen as long as you don't attempt to scratch beneath the surface, as anyone searching for musical substance will surely be rather underwhelmed. Far too much effort was devoted to capturing the intricacies of their signature sound at the expense of strong songwriting. The quality and richness of the sound ensures that the album will always at least sound good, but the band's negligence in the songwriting department guarantees that one will retain little of worth once the album is over, with a lack of memorabiliy that, at times, devolves into sheer tedium with few hooks to maintain the listener's interest. The album still has its moments, and the brilliant sound is nothing to scoff at, but ultimately The Minstrel In The Gallery is a mediocre experience; the Jethro Tull formula may be flawlessly preserved, but the band still sound as if they're simply going through the motions as opposed to taking their sound in any new or interesting directions.
