5 stars This recording is a timeless classic and a masterpiece from beginnning to end. It is the quintessential amalgam of hard rock, blues, and folk. Musicianship on this record is awesome. More song-oriented than the later epic Thick as a Brick, it is more immediately accessible to most. Musical ideas are seen through to resolution from beginning to end. It is a very satisfying recording full of remarkable contrasts in textures. Hard, driving rockers and finely played acoustic music is present. Raucous vocals are counterbalanced elsewhere on this recording with beautiful harmonies. Although it is quite debatable whether this is Jethro Tull's absolutely best work in their discography from a progressive rock viewpoint, this recording nevertheless is a very well crafted project that is essential to any ROCK library. Therefore, it rates five stars.
