It took me a long time to get TAAB, but I'm totally hooked now.
I've always thought Aqualung was a great album.

I don't actually like Aqualung. 3 listens and I'm already thinking of so much of the material as forgettable or (personally) uninspiring.

I like Aqualung - some great acoustic songs - but it doesn't match TAAB (or a APP and Minstrel)

Aqualung is my fav JT album. I don't love TAAB too much. I think it would have been a fantastic 20 minutes epic without some parts that to me sound as fillers. Aqualung is simply perfect instead.

Hard choice, since both are important, not only as part of Tull's catalog, but as representatives of progressive rock from the 70s.

It used to be TAAB. One of the things that changed my mind was "Wond'ring Aloud", so ... .
