5 stars I'm not a Jethro Tull fan. I like some of their stuff, but most of isn't my cup of tea. For instance, I really like their Crest of a Knave album, but I don't care much for Aqualung, an album considered a classic of not only progressive rock, but the rock genre as a whole. So what could I possibly add to an album that already has over 600 ratings on Prog Archives as of October 10, 2010? Nothing substantial I suppose, and maybe nothing really worth reading. So why am I writing a review?

The reason why is that I'm speaking for those that can't really get into Jethro Tull. And for those of you that are like me, I can only say, that if you really want to give this group a chance, buy this album. Thick as a Brick is THE album where Jethro Tull puts it all together and clearly deserves the status of "masterpiece" on this esteemed web site. It is as good as anything in Prog Archives' Top 10 albums and combines a multitude of genres into something that is uniquely Jethro Tull, including folk, acoustic, classical, symphonic prog, and heavy-edged rock, all with a strong theatrical touch.

So, for those of you that can't get into Jethro Tull (like me), you're really missing something special with this album. Now if only I could get into their other stuff more... Time will only tell.

Easily five stars!
