3 stars Thick as a Brick is probably one of Jethro Tull's most widely known and loved albums here on PA. As far as I go, though, it overstays its welcome, usually seeming to drag on as I near the end of the album. As far as the style of the album goes, I was (and still am) pretty excited. The instrumentation of progressive folk albums can be hit or miss with me, and for the most part it's hit on this one. Not too many synthesizers, a focus on acoustic guitar much of the time, etc. The style of the song is in general good as well, but as I said it starts to bore me near the end of the first half or through the second half. Overall, I think it's a good album, but not great, deserving of a 3-star rating. The packaging of the album is fun, with the newspaper insert.
