At some point, we become disillusioned by our heroes and stopped buying their albums automatically on release (especially when younger and vinyl was expensive).  At which point did this happen with Tull (if, at all)?

Even though the post classic era was not as good, I still liked Jethro Tull and bought their music until the end. I still would buy anything that Ian Anderson decides to put out, and certainly Martin Barre's material, which is quite good and exiting to my ears.

Tull never ever disillusioned me. They stayed wonderful, also all the solo albums.

I started out chronologically with Tull so I guess I can participate in this one.
Loved This Was from the get-go and fell head over heels for Stand Up then got Benefit - an album I span three times and decided I had enough Tull. Couple of years later I picked up where I left - only I didn't purchase albums right away but listened at a friend's apartment instead. I am very grateful for that. I found yet another gem in A Passion Play.
I still prefer Tull with Bunker behind the drumkit though.

Oh and I got the Isle of Wight cd as well. Great gig.

With the choices given, I've refused to buy them all (enough bad reviews here prevail).

Rock Island was where I jumped ship. It sounded flat and uninspired (while I enjoy Crest to this day). The concert was great, though.

I've actually bought the lot with JT as well...though several of those later albums are quite a miss.

in this case, I'd be tempted to say APP....
 
But TBH, I discovered TAAB, Aqualung and APP in 74... So while some albums (Too Old) I've never bought, the final straw for me was Storm Watch...
and the next new (and only) album I bought after that was Roots To Branches..  But I did buy Knave recently (dirt cheap)

Bought them all. Didn't really LIKE them all, but the ones I didn't like still had some nice bits to them.

It really starts farther back with such gems as 'Too Young to Die and Heavy Horses (affectionately known back in the day as "Heavy Horse sh#t").

I guess Rock Island, since I don't even recognize the title. I must not have bought it. Broadsword and the Beast was their worst album. Under Wraps was the most underwhelming album. Crest of a Knave was not all that bad, but that's also the last album that I bought. All throughout those I attended concerts and those were always more than worthwhile no matter what. I've kept saying I should buy some of Ian's solo albums, but I never have, even with a friend's favorable recommendation. One day I will. I never bought TAAB2 either. One day I will.

Ronnie Wood calls Jethro Tull, Jethro Dull, and after Passion Play I can understand why.

It wasn't Jethro Tull any more. To me Stormwatch was their last album. Everything after that seemed like an Ian Anderson solo album. He was always the leader but he was never Jethro Tull to me.

If anyone knows what is Dull (with a capital D) then it's Ronnie Wood.

Makes me want to listen to Tull even more.
