2 stars Looking in retrospect Under wraps from 1984 is the worst JT album in theor prolific career. JT is toying now with eclectronic synths , drum machines, etc, a thing that they've started with A album wich is very strong IMO, but Under wraps is absolutly cold and flat typicaly cheesy 80's-style sound. Even for a die hard fan this is the lowest they can go. Some good moments I can trace here, I mean still can listen to these pieces are Under Wraps #1 and Saboteur and maybe Astronomy , the rest are dull and with no real intrest for a prog fan. 2 stars for this one, this is easy synth pop album with Anderson's flute being only an additional instrument , not a full driving force as one glory days. So, after this JT got again together quikly for another studio album, dropping that cold plastic synth sound and in 1985 they preparing for Crest of Knave who is 100% better then this one, remembering in places the old good times. As I said 2 stars.
