AllMusic Review by

This two-disc set presents both of Ian Anderson's early-2000s albums, Rupi's Dance and The Secret Language of Birds. An acoustic-based extension of Anderson's work with the prog rock act Jethro Tull, these outings feature the Scottish vocalist/flautist playing up the folk and world music elements of his compositions, as evidenced on the jubilant "Rupi's Dance" and the chiming "Montserrat." Easily eclipsing much of Tull's latter-day material, these records find Anderson continuing his solo career with style and grace.
