5 stars This album is particularly important to me. Back in the late 1990s, when I was around 10-12 years old, I would go over my one buddy's house nearly every free moment I had. Luckily for me, his father had a great taste in music which he shared with us. One particularly memorable album that he showed us was Thick as a Brick, which we deemed as "the flute song". The first several times we listened to it, we would poke fun at it. This was mostly due to its predominately featured instrument, the flute, which isn't the 'coolest' instrument, especially to a 12year old boy. As we continued to listen to the album more, my ironic liking of the album lead way to a sincere love of the album. It was around this time that I was lucky enough to be taken to see Jethro Tull with my friend and his father for my first concert experience ever, which I'm practically proud to be able to say (my wife has to say Britney Spears :P). Although my tastes in music did change during my inevitable angsty teen years, this album sowed a seed in my soul that would later blossom into my love of prog-rock.

As for the music, there is nothing new that I can say that hasn't already said better. This is absolutely an essential piece of prog-rock. 5 stars.
