Let's continue the week dedicated to Jethro Tull.
After the success of progressive rock in the 1970s, as the new decade dawned, the group found itself facing an evolving musical landscape.
The 1980s began with the album 'A' in 1980, a work that embraced more pop-oriented sounds and introduced the use of synthesizers, quite prevalent at the time but entirely foreign to Jethro Tull's production. Nevertheless, the stylistic leap proved to be a decent success, with tracks like 'Crossfire' demonstrating the band's ability to adapt to changes in musical tastes.
In 1982, 'The Broadsword and the Beast' was released, a work that partially returns to the folk roots of the group. The album highlights the band's versatility in exploring and blending different styles and musical approaches, merging modern synthesizer sounds, thanks in part to the new addition Peter-John Vettese, with the sound that made them famous in the 1970s.
The pinnacle of the 1980s for Jethro Tull is 'Crest of a Knave' (1987), which even won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance, marking a partial return of the band to more tried-and-true sounds.
From this album, we bring you 'Budapest.' Enjoy listening!"
