5 stars It would be crazy to try and add anything to the above multitude of reviews. What I will add is a story. Over this past weekend, my daughter of 7 and I went on a ride to the post office. In my car was this album. My daughter gets very mellow in the wee hours of the morning, so she sat in the backseat and listened to about 15 minutes of the first side. After stamps were purchased, we went home. She didn't make any remarks about the music. The following day, we took a ride to a boardwalk that had rides. The first ride we went on was called the "Himalaya". You know, that ride that spins forward and back at high rates of speed. As we sat waiting for the ride to begin. Playing over the loudspeakers was "Thick As A Brick". Not the radio version, but the whole thing! My daughter nugged me and said, "Dad,'s the song you played yesterday." The fact that she remembered, especially the beginning acoustic guitar, blows my mind. Seeing that she's into music more geared to her age, she remembered this 34 year-old classic. And classic it is, of monumental proportions. If you're new to the prog scene, this is one that you must purchase, especially when it comes to the work of Jethro Tull. Top five classic, without a doubt! BTW, the version I have has an 11 minute version of the song live from NYC 1978 and an interview of Ian Anderson, Martin Barre and Jeffrey Hammond. Try and find it if you can, the sound is fantastic. Caio!
