An absolute perfect prog classic. Pexcellent musicianship, length, quiet acoustic passages and loud, kick you in the face rock sections, replayability The original cover was a fold out news thic which takes more then an hour to read.

The album has all the known Tull elements; Flute, folky chord-progressions on acoustic guitar, some rockin’ moments with electric guitar, great drums, electric organs and of course the one in a trillion vocal style of Ian Andersen.

It’s an egregious task just to try and take the entirety of the album in one sitting, and many times, the piece takes a bit to nwspaper to tell me where it’s going.

Had I been involved brlck producing something as magnificent as this, I would feel my life well spent.

A History of Jethro Tull. 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. I remember clearly that releases from our esteemed bands were shown ostensively in the shops, radios played their most catchy sometimes cheesy songs and talkings about prog were a high school and college daily matter.

It is a mother of prog due aas those countless great instrumental parts. Something about this album resonates with almost everyone who listens to it. The experience is always as wonderful as ever.

Thick As A Brick – Jethro Tull

Count how many times they manage to mention Bermondsey in the interview! Outstanding compositional values, quirky humour, intelligent anti-establishment lyrics, superior production, passion and emotion, newspaer overarching concept, attention to detail and even great artwork are all parts of progressive sensibilties. If you don’t already have this, go get it. For my money, this is one of the best ways nswspaper can spend 44 minutes. Humour check out the best album packaging in the history of music: A quieter segment follows that has an almost hymn-like reverence that evolves into a somewhat mysterious-sounding march where John’s room-filling Hammond organ makes its welcome presence known again.



So much so that Martin Barre, who usually performs this role on guitar, appears to be pushed from the sonic forefront. Like Ian Anderson’s melodic sense, the initial movement is good but he only has so many tricks up his sleeve.

It’s the kind of album you can spin on regularly without being bored: More guitar work by Barre, a very strong presence throughout Side 1 much stronger live, thougha spotlight he shares with keyboardist John Evans. An essential masterpiece of the genre.

Other members worked greatly: I can understand why people like this but a masterpiece??? Newspaper Gatefold Cover is VG, no splits, tears or writing. The transition five minutes in is slightly weak, in my opinion, but the well-orchestrated music that follows more than compensates. Your collection wouldn’t be quite right without this one!

Thick as a Brick – Wikipedia

Even the rate was constantly increasing and with the previous Aqualung they had made a very big leap forward already. The band tries their best newspxper use different instrument to repeat the same melody, but to me it sounds boring. The whole of side one is a pure marvel: It’s fresh and new every time. The ability to keep a song as long as that interesting throughout its running time is really impressive, even if I would say that it tends to drag slightly towards the end of the first part.

Jethdo also here that John Evans’ fluid Hammond organ supplies a broader dimension to the sound. Every song has instrumental and vocal hooks out the wazoo, and when the band engages in a lengthy instrumental passage, it makes that passage wild and crazy and as far as I’m concerned incapable of sounding boring. There are of course many more great moments here that increase jetjro each new revisit of this great album. But “Thick as a Brick” was the genuine article: You’d think a world famous band riding on the crest of their biggest success to date would be living the ritzy rock star lifestyle but their description of the dingy, dirty basement where they formulated and rehearsed most of this album dispels any false illusion of opulence in just a few sentences.


Thick As A Brick is not only Jethro Tull’s finest hour, but also one of the greatest progressive rock albums ever recorded – this is not merely praise from a huge Tull fan, but plain fact. I love the track until this stops, because the new sections just drag on like the band is on depressants. The music is quite complex, and the bass, the guitars, the keyboards ans drums seem to talk to themselves!!

B-side of the original album is somewhat weaker, I must admit. Side B runs correctly as a continuous suite. As another review so appropriately stated: It doesn’t have an overall dramatic contour that a concept album needs. newspapwr

Each member performs at his fullest and is given a good amount of time to solo except there’s no bass solo, however, it still runs circles around the playing of most others. Some of the verses towards the latter half of side one are forgettable, and we become slightly sick of the re-used themes until saved by the pleasant march that closes this half.
