5 stars J-Tull's Thick As A Brick is one of the best progressive rock albums ever to be created. Incorporating many different musical influences, like Folk, Blues, Rock, and Classical music in one big epic song lasting a good 43 minutes. A great roller-coaster ride.

It starts quite soft, with gentle accoustic guitar, and a sweet well known flute melodie, and a great voice on top of that. Soon the piano enters the play and the song beginnes to take shape. After some 3 minutes the bass start to kick in and takes the song to a more heavy frantic structure, with lots of sounds and "noises" that are held together by the tight drumming, and brilliant bass play. With each passing minute the song becomes more complex, and more instruments join the play, creating a more intense sound. Fast and rhytmic passages and more quiet passages alternate each other at a high pace.

The instrumental passages are absolutely brilliant, as are the vocals. 43 minutes of pure bliss. A brilliant album every prog-lover should have in their collection.MAGNIFICENT
