5 stars THE BEST PROGRESSIVE ALBUM OF ALL TIME: I really DO mind if you sit this one out!

Incredible's imagine that was to be one BLUES BAND...

Jethro Tull evolved their folk sound by combining a SYMPHONIC atmosphere, with the help of DAVID PALMER's orchestrations. And headed by Anderson flute, the rest of the band also seemed to be at the peak of his artform - until A PASSION PLAY be created.

What's most striking in this work is to see how 44 minutes of music can flow naturally without sounding dull or wordy. Besides all can be seen as a great "kickoff" for concept albums worked on a single idea - like majority successfull works of MIKE OLDFIELD on career.

PART 1 of disc is beauty cohesive and reserve the highlights of this work. It's however quite superb, even sounding affordable and enjoyable to listen. [10+/10]

PART 2 are certainly less magic but the quality persists and new themes are increased and formed a big result, before returns with the principal riff of theme of opening for the turnaround. Almost perfect! [9.8/10]

(10+ + 9.8 ) / 2 --> ~ 10, MASTERPIECE is little for this album.
