Jethro Tull - Under Wraps album FLAC

Under wraps I've got you under wraps Under wraps I've got you under wraps. Tell you when, not yet Soon the great unveiling Bless my boots upon my soul! Secrecy, it is my failing. Wrapped in your summer night Wrapped in your autumn leaves Wrapped in the winter of your sleeping. Under wraps I've got you under wraps Under wraps I've got you under wraps.

Under Wraps is the 15th studio album by the band Jethro Tull, released in 1984. The songs' subject matter is heavily influenced by bandleader Ian Anderson's love of espionage fiction. Dave Pegg has been quoted as saying that the tracks cut from the sessions for Broadsword and the Beast would have made a better album, while Martin Barre has referred to it as one of his personal favourite Tull albums  .

The next year the two cut the similar-sounding Under Wraps using the Jethro Tull banner. Most of the work, including drum programming, was done by Anderson in his home studio before guitar and (scant) bass guitar were added. The group members were excited about their latest sounds, which brought a cold edginess to the usual intricate music (the acoustic "Under Wraps No. 2" being one exception). Lyrically, Anderson was letting go of his Olde English façade; here he showed his fascination with Cold War-era espionage. While the British audiences didn't mind the changes, .

Under Wraps has never gotten a lot of love, from critics or even from many Jethro Tull fans.

In defense of Jethro Tull’s fourteenth studio album, Broadsword And The Beast, frontman Ian Anderson claimed that the album was really nothing more than a collection of folk songs infused with modern, electronic elements. Underlying all this were the less-than machine-like, humanly played drums, bass and guitar lines along with flute, mandolin and the other acoustic sounds familiar to Tull fans, he wrote in the album’s liner notes. After four years spent by Jethro Tull futilely advancing into electronic territory, and especially after the synth-laden mess that was Under Wraps, it was easy to overvalue the band’s supposed return to form, Crest Of A Knave. The album was instantly lapped up by critics and especially by fans, happy that Anderson finally decided to return to familiar ground.

In 1984, Jethro Tull released Under Wraps, a heavily electronic album with no "live" drummer and instead, as on Walk into Light, a drum-machine was used. Although the band were reportedly proud of the sound, the album was not well received. However, the video for "Lap of Luxury" did manage to earn moderate rotation on the newly influential MTV music video channel. It was re-recorded for the 2003 The Jethro Tull Christmas Album release. 1991's Catfish Rising was a more solid album than Rock Island (1989).
