Prog Reviewer
2 stars I'm not a big fan of greatest hits compilations. It hepls when you're getting into an artist or if an artist has a lot of hit singles that never made it onto studio albums or you get a lot of rarities. My friend lent me a copy of this disc that he got while visiting his family in Germany. He gave me his, Orginal Masters, and Aqualung. I really liked Aqualung, and some of the songs on the greatest hits were good, but as I got into Tull, I hated this album. It doesn't have a lot of key early songs (Dharma For One?) and the most egregious crimes are that Thick as a Brick and Passion Play are cut to a few minutes in length. These are album long songs! My advice, get Aqualung (TaaB is a hard place to start). If you like it, get the other classics. Avoid this album, they don't even put very good songs on it (Fat Man, Skating).

Grade: D-
