Where is?
 
Teacher

Look into the sun
Up the pool
Life is a long song
Whistler
Mouse police
Acres wild
North sea oil
Fylingdale flyer
 
They are instant classics
 
 
Surely it is down to personal tastes? Some great stuff in your list(Teacher/Life's a long song/Witches promise)
 
But North sea oil/ Mouse police/Flyingdale flyer - certainly not instant classics to me!

Right now, I hear "Heavy Horses" (but I was close to vote "Songs From The Wood").

Too many great tunes to choose from, since Tull has a lot of great music on their catalog.
We Used to Know is my all time favorite song, for very personal reasons, so my vote goes to it. But the rest are all great pieces of music, from one of the greatest (if not the greatest) band of all time.

Cross Eyed Mary for me, I love the original but surprisingly find myself listening to a bootleg recording of a live cover version made by "The Elves" in 1970 just a bit more ^^ I think I'd actually pick it over Thick as a Brick as well.

Back to the family from my fave Tull album Stand Up. 
Artistically, I'd probably say A Passion Play is the better record.

Other - Moths. Same if TAAB was here.
 
From the list, Aqualung or Locomotive Breath.

Bourée

Nothing is Easy, Aqualung, Cross-Eyed Mary, Mother Goose, Living in the Past, Minstrel in the Gallery, Cold Wind to Valhalla - I could've voted for any of these, but I'm in the mood for Bourée right now.

Oh my God...That's the one I really should have voted for.
