5 stars What a masterpiece! Thick As A Brick" is a real classic one! I think it is the best TULL album! 1972 was a wonder year for top prog albums: "Close To The Edge", "Foxtrot", "Fragile", "Prologue", "Three Friends", and "Thick As A Brick".

But "Thick As A Brick" is quite different from "Foxtrot", and more particularly, if I want to compare with another album more alike: "Moving Waves": the keyboards and songs are more in a specific pattern on "Thick As A Brick": organ, tons of drums, speed changes...but how much efficient!! All the instruments are extremely present and well played! Yes, the album sounds the same and has the same style from the beginning to the end, but one must admit that the result is a very outstanding arrangements technically perfectly played! The music is quite complex, and the bass, the guitars, the keyboards ans drums seem to talk to themselves!!

Extremely recommended!
