5 stars What do you prefer: a joke playing with serious elements or a serious theme including some dark jokes? Because these guys were good enough for both. After the satiric "concept album" (according to Ian Anderson) Thick As A Brick, Tull came with the real concept album: A Passion Play. Talking about afterlife with a fake cast of an imaginary movie, this album reaches the complexity that even some of the Jethro Tull diehard fans could not comprehend. Musically, A Passion Play is their best effort, and it would easily replace TAAB in the top prog albums list in my opinion. One song, divided into two parts (once again), featuring The Story of the Hare Who Lost His Spectacles as an interlude: it was the only weak moment of the album, until the day I bought the enhanced cd, with the video of this narration. It's pretty cool.

Not reccomended to light-hearted Jethro Tull fans.
