5 stars This album has some of my favourite songs, but it also can be quite boring. Here there are very strong themes like Aqualung and Locomotive Breath, but there also are some songs that can be boring as hell.

The first song," aqualung", is for me the best song of the group, it's near perfection with a really good guitar solo, one of the bests. Cross Eyed Marry has a very good introduction with Ian Anderson in the flute, but the rest of the song is always the same. With the following songs I never pay many atention because I don't like them very much, they all are very folksy and they bore me, however, they also can be interesting. I love "my good", well, I love the riff of "my good", there are very good contrast changes, but I always found that the flute part has not sense. "Hym 43" i find it a quite boring theme, it doesn't say many things to me, the same of Slipstream. "Locomotive Breath" it's the song that introduced me to Jethro Tull and I liked very much, the Piano Introduction is perfect and it makes that song speciall, the rest of the song its good to, but the strong part of that theme is the introduction. "Wind-up" it's other of my favourite tracks of the album, very complete with a very beautifull melody in the acoustic part, wich I love, and a very good rocking part, the combination of booth makes a very good song.

Aqualung it's a album with very good themes but, with an other couple of themes that need to be improved, this would be a perfect album if there were no some of the themes that seems to be only for filling the empty space.
