5 stars Wow, Jethro Tull + Hammond Organs. After the Aqualung's criticism, the album was tagged as a "concept album". Ian Anderson dislikes the tag, and Thick As A Brick was released as an Ian Anderson answer to critics: this is what he understand by a concept album. And this is brilliant.

The whole album, including music, lyrics (the poem) and sleeve is about a poem written by a little english boy Gerald Bostock, that talks about the challenges of aging. The poem was winning, but revoked because of the little boy attitude. People used to believe Gerald Bostock was a real person, and Ian Anderson signed the compositions as (Ian Anderson/Gerald Bostock). The music is totally progressive, one song divided into two sides of the LP. I really like the whole thing, and this is one of the best concept albums ever.
