4 stars I'll show you how to be bombast and over the top, wait this is kind of good and fun...

What could rating #1612 add to the mix, most likely not much. This is Jethro Tull's most beloved album and their most progressive (to me). It is Ian Anderson at his satirical best, to concept a pompous concept album, but then I think it backfired and he enjoyed the musical challenge.

Nothing more can be added to the musical insight that has not been discussed before here on PA. This album just blends all the elements of Folk-Rock-Classical-Minstrel-Prog extremely well. Depending on my mood, TAAB or Aqualung is/are my favorites, but I admit that I have not spent as much listening time to a lot of their other works as I have those two.

Something inside, that I can't put my finger on keeps me from pulling the trigger on masterpiece, but it is 4 plus and must be in your collection.
