Martin Barre – Back to Steel Review

The release of Martin Barres 6th Solo album, Back to Steel was set to coincide with his 50th year in the music industry. Embarking on a solo career after such a long stint with the same band was always sure to carry its risks. As Jethro Tull’s guitarist for 43 years and featuring on all but their very first album, he has demonstrated the ability to excel at every conceivable musical style from classical to hard rock. He considers this to be his most important solo album to date and I have to agree.
