5 stars Truly a masterpiece of progressive rock.

The best song on this album is Thick as a Brick (ho ho!). One song on a whole album - how progressive can you get? This album stands out amongst other Jethro Tull albums of the same period. Compared with Aqualung, the sound quality is better and the band play together better as a whole. Compared with their other one-song album A Passion Play, this album contains lighter and more humourous lyrical content and IMHO better tunes.

Personally though, I prefer the live shortened versions of this album available on albums such as Live Bursting Out. The latest version of this CD contains a live version of Thick as a Brick from Madison Square Gardens in 1977, which alone is worth the price of the CD.
