5 stars Really don't mind if you sit this one out...

"Thick as a Brick" is an album that only has two songs on it. Part one and part two. In my opinion this is truly Jethro Tull at their peak. My god I love this album.

Thick as a Brick (part one) 10/10, The style is progressive rock/folk or what you wanna call it. It's just simply amazing, flowing melodies, great singing and a damn hard song to play with so many rhytmn changes. Really keeps your attention for the whole 20 minutes. Btw, you should checkout the live from -78 (Madison Square Garden). There aren't many people as talented as Ian Anderson. A great frontman for the band! The whole first part is a pure joy for the ears.

Thick as a Brick (part two) 10-/10, As good as the first part minus the drum solo, which is the only part in the whole two songs when I get little bit "bored". Varied song with so many different parts but everything is made perfectly for together with smooth transitions. The ending is pretty legendary too.

A masterpiece that goes to my top 10 of all time. I've never been a big fan of Tull's other albums. But this one, it's just out of this world. 1972 was quite a good year for prog (Close to the Edge, Foxtrot). If you haven't listened it yet, please do.
