4 stars A great classic album. Like Ian Anderson said, this isn't a concept album (like the follow up was) but just a bunch of songs. What an excellent bunch of songs though! Overall, it's much more engaging than Benefit and although the songwriting is just as good, the music has a different feel to it. Aqualung is much fresher, more inspiring and heartsome.

The beginning tells the story of the character "Aqualung". It's an unforgettable JT song as is "Cross-Eyed Mary", kicking off the album on a strong note. There are many primarily acoustic tracks like "Cheap Day Return", "Wand'ring Aloud", "Slipstream" which are short and sweet and act as "bridges" between the main songs.

Some personal favourites include "Mother Goose" (actually one of my all time favourite Jethro Tull songs), "My God" and the adrenaline releasing "Locomotive Breath", with their great folky melodies and arrangements.

Aqualung would be a very enjoyable and memorable eddition to your collection. 4 shining stars.
