Benefit for me as well.

Thick As A Brick and A Passion Play are favorites, but I chose Thick this time around.

Of course these are all opinions but judging by the physical data (the goose bumps on my arms) the prizes go to these three...
TAAB - side one
SFTW - Velvet Green
Stormwatch - Flying Dutchman
                                   ...and really friends, it's the one you just happen to be listening to at the time. They couldn't go wrong back in the '70's!

Side one of TAAB and side two of APP - that would be the perfect album.

Voted for APP just ahead of TAAB.

All their albums was spot on except "Under Wraps". I find Tull albums of late 70's often underrated.

"Aqualang" the best for sure. But my favorite is "Nightcap". This compilation contains a great stuff.  If you are looking for sheer brilliance, it's just for you. It holds a special place in my mind.

Aqualung was the first Tull album I ever heard and is also the best I've heard so far.

Certainly "Aqualung", for me is the best!

I'd give up my halo for a horn and the horn for the hat I once had.  But I'd give up the hat for A Passion Play. Big smile

Although I voted "Aqualung" I can't believe how few votes "Songs From the Woods" and "Benefit" have gotten. They are  some of Tull's best albums.
"Aqualung" got my vote because of the special place it holds in my heart -- it was among the first great albums I ever heard, along with "Court of the Crimson King," "Space Ritual," "Nursery Cryme," "Days of Future Passed" and "Meddle."
But people, give "Songs" and "Benefit" some love!!!

My most favorite album is 'Songs from the Wood' but I voted for Aqualung, because I believe it is a more 'complete' and objectively 'mature' album...

Minstrel has always been my favorite, nothing against Aqualung or TAB, but songs like cold wind, one white duck, and the huge baker street muse are just too hard to vote against.

I think it would have to be Thick As A Brick if you are looking for sheer prog brilliance. But if you have a bit of attention defecit disorder, as I do, it's easier to swallow brilliance in shorter bursts. So my vote would be for Aqualung. Though I have a strange attraction to Stormwatch. What's that about?
