4 stars So has Biggles ever turned up?

Ian Anderson is without a doubt an extremely talented musician. His presence is overwhelming on most everything that Jethro Tull does, but really stands out on Thick As A Brick. For those of you who like his style (of music), I think it's safe to say that you will adore this album. Even for those who don't necessarily care for the way Anderson utilizes his talents (like me), this album is intriguing enough to please the ear.

This album consists of one long epic, divided into two parts for LP production purposes. Most people tend to prefer side 1 and I wonder if it's not because of the large amount of repetition that occurs which seems to bog down side 2 a bit. I find the music very unique, with a good mix of acoustic and electric guitar mixed in with solid percussion and Anderson's flute which comes and goes throughout the entire album. While I recognize the significance of this album in the progressive genre, I cannot give it masterpiece status as much of the music does repeat itself over and over again over the album's 40 minutes. However, I will not hesitate to strongly recommend this album as it clearly is a worthy addition to any prog collection.
