So, what are we left with? The Official Jethro Tull Website.

The album prominently features fluteacoustic and electric guitars and Hammond organwhich had been used previously, [13] but the instrumentation includes harpsichordxylophonetimpaniviolin, lutetrumpet, saxophone, and a string section—all uncommon in the band’s earlier blues-inspired rock. Thick as a Brick The original LP cover; its gatefold opens up as a page newspaper. Outstanding compositional values, quirky humour, intelligent anti-establishment lyrics, superior production, passion and emotion, an overarching concept, attention to detail and even great artwork are all parts of progressive sensibilties.

Don’t get me wrong, Yes has a lot of musicianship and they can surely arrange great harmonies, but they also tend to drag some of their songs beyond measure. Anyway, as for the heads and tales: A perfect dosage of everything was one of the keys why this album gained stardom status. The DVD contains a 5. Just as the s was a complacent decade, the late 60s – early 70s was an experimental time: Retrieved 21 April Album plays well, the original sleeve is not included a plain white paper sleeve is provided.

The band really get the best of all worlds onto this record; complicated time signatures, awesome singing, weird lyrics, brilliant solos and wonderful recurring themes abound! Of course, I do not listen to it quite often but like for the remastered one for “Aqualung”, the first time I discover the story, I was quite interested but you should know by now that I like details.

The album mocks the pretentiousness of the concept albums prevalent in prog, but it in turn became one of the greatest concept albums of all time. I recommend this album as one of your collection. If you don’t already have this, go get it. An excellent addition to any prog music collection.

Is this good, well hell yes! Retrieved 5 February All the usual Tull strengths are here, great flute work, sharp lyrics, some nice classic rock jamming, and even hethro some composed interweaving lines.

The whole thing was meant to represent a rock-and-roll arrangement of a controversial poem written by a fictional 8-year old prodigy at odds with middlebrow conservatism, blending equal parts theology, scatology, obscure symbolism, and ribald satire into one long tragic- comic meditation on the entire human condition, here presented in a tongue-in- cheek “newspaper” poking fun not only at the anticipated critical response to the new album, but also at the conventions of album cover art overkill.

It’s all spiced up with studio tricks – the band started using studio as a powerful tool and another musical instrument somewhere during recording of the “Benefit” album, and this is the peak. Every time I think I have the storyline figured out, I doubt myself on the next listen There are two additional bonuses which are IMO really worth. I can not bear listening to Part 2 completely as I’ve seen nothing compelling at the end of the tunnel. But there are also guitar and drum section that are simply classic 70’s rock n roll that would have been a nice part of a concert but don’t do much for me in the middle of a prog concept album.

A quick “that doesn’t match! Beyond this, I don’t really know what to say.

All the musicians themselves aas great, but the music in general is much more than sum of it’s parts, again. Its overall tightness is exemplary, especially in an age where guide tracks and tempo-correction software was non-existent and the ever-changing pace had to be regulated solely by the drummer.

The final moments of part one consist of the jarring riff used to bridge the acoustical introduction to the rest of the song. Since naturally this isn’t an album one can easily dissect into individual sections for analysis, I’d instead like to focus on some of the aspects that really grab my interest and respect.


It is essential at the most pure sense of the word, and if you want some more music to newxpaper yourself get the new CD containing an extra live track not special, but it is interesting to listen to this live and an interview with Ian and the band. An album in which everyone, everyone, plays his guts out, over and over brck. Next they drop into a sort of free-fall improvisation with random voices popping in and out before re-introducing the first theme in yet another imaginative variation.

It comes among the greatest of ironies that an album poking fun at the pretension of the prog rock world turns out to be one of the scene’s most loved masterpieces. But this was clearly Ian Anderson’s magnum opus. Of the two albums Tull made in this vein, this might be the less serious one, but I also think it’s superior; the Story of the Hare Who Lost His Spectacles might be an accurate reflection of the structure of tulll medieval passion plays, but vrick also sucks all the momentum out of A Passion Play, which also ends up feeling rather forced – as though the band didn’t really want to make another album in the same vein as Thick As a Brick, but felt that they had to following its runaway success.

Evans provides a stunning organ break as they continue to redefine the march jthro without ever becoming redundant.

Retrieved 1 May Warner Bros MS brlck They did not know at the time than “Thick” would be a concept album.

This is the artistic peak of Jethro tull. The drummer gets in a rapid solo that has musical interludes peppered over it. Is This Jethro’s ‘Tommy’? But that’s nothing, when compared to the good sides of the rest of these “songs”.

The lyrics are great and humerous. Part one ends with punchy accents and an arresting, dynamic fade out.
