5 stars And in this corner we have Jethro Tull. This album is way up amongst the heavyweights of rock and prog rock music. A concept album put together by Anderson in response to the vibe in the music world that Aqualung was a concept album which it was not according to Anderson. He decided to put together a concept album to "show" the fans and the music critics and to parody the progressive works of the time. This album is a giant for its time as well as for today. It is full of contrasts in the music and the lyrics are a work of almost genius proportion - full of humor (in an intelligent typical Brittish vein). The musicians are all on top of their game through this masterwork. The music sits firmly in the progressive folk rock genre interspersing accoustic folk rock with agressive electric rock . I can't think of any part of the album that I don't like a great deal. A very easy album for me to rate - 5 stars, no questions or thoughts to the negative.
