Parritt —entitled “Homo Britanicus Erraticus”.
I can listen to this all the way through every day if I wanted to. Though many refer to the conceptual song-writing as the main attraction of this album, I must admit I think the strenth lies in the induvidual song parts. To me, a ‘Best Of Jethro Tull’ set would include this album, along with another disc of the best songs from their ”75 albums and singles. Truly a work of genius! I think it sounds a bit less dated than some of those other classics. The mock newspaper, dated s Januaryalso includes the entire lyrics to “Thick as a Jetheo printed on page 7which is presented as a poem written by Bostock,  whose disqualification from a poetry contest is the focus of the front-page story.
The melody right here seems to be a “central theme” that will be used repeatedly throughout the song. Thick As A Brick part I But Jethro Tull would not even make my Top 50 Bands list.

I have also been involved in Community Radio in small towns of Outback Australia for a few years, and as I have left one place to go to another my parting gift to the stations’ listeners as been playing TAAB in its entirety, so prominent is this album’s position on my musical radar. Humour check out the best album packaging in the history of music: As the LP had to be turned over there is an enforced hiatus in the music, but it’s newslaper noticeable with the CD.
Think of the children. The first one is an edited live version of “Thick”: It helps a little bit to elevate my emotion.

I can understand why people like this but a masterpiece??? There’s no need to “virtuosity show-off” here, they are lightened as a true group making their sound as the best they could produce. Towards the middle of side two occurs a march- theme with solemnly vocals and ‘TAAB’ ends with a great arrangement of David Palmer, alternating a quick instrumental passage with a slow string movement, until the main theme returns and closes a perfect record.
I’m gonna keep this review short. If you don’t own this album, then you must within 1 day, or else you can’t be a true prog fan. Funny thing happens when the melody used at the intro of Part 1 is used again here with different lyrics.
And while Jetnro Anderson’s spectacular composition cannot be downplayed, and the rest of the band is astounding, the game ball for this recording should be awarded to keyboardist John Evan. Organ and bass are prominant. The closest reference to previous work would be the album Benefit, but with that album’s progressive leanings stretched to the maximum and with a unifying vision that is probably unsurpassed in prog history.

Warner Bros MS It was a concept album, of course, as was just about every other record released at the time. Archived from the original on 17 April I first heard this album 30 odd years ago in my teens and have loved it from that time.
Everything came together in the most convenient of ways for Anderson and co. The whole album consists of only one long song divided up into two parts. The album was also re-released on vinyl at the same time. The musicianship is of the highest order and the instruments – both acoustic and electric – very pleasing.
Which kind of rating can I use? Anderson’s flute never sounded better, but the whole band are working as a unit on this album, giving a depth of quality missing from most of their subsequent albums.
Ok probably this is the most unconventional album by J. The music, however, is pure Jethro Tull – a great array of acoustic ballads and heavy folk-rock tunes jumbled together in a single piece, being, however, much more keyboard dominated than previous albums where flute and guitar held rule. Side one is near perfect in my opinion. 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.
Elements of the music that aren’t present on all other Tull albums are the progressive compositions, the conceptual form of the album and the refreshing use of musical themes.

It is as good as anything in Prog Archives’ Top 10 albums and combines a multitude of genres into something that is uniquely Jethro Tull, including folk, acoustic, classical, symphonic prog, and heavy-edged rock, all with a strong theatrical touch.
He tortures those he sees unfit to exist, judging all. Have you ever noticed the names of some JTULL members, as they sound very different from your regular guy?? This is the artistic peak of Jethro tull. And, as if the immaculately remastered studio recording wasn’t enough, they throw in an energetic concert performance from Madison Square Garden in to give a different perspective. 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.
