I prefer the Wood album and the Minstrel song.

Minstrel in the Gallery recently overcame A Passion Play as my favorite Jethro Tull album ever.

"Baker St. Muse" is the greatest song Jethro Tull ever crafted.

Hah! Didn't think of that.

If we're talking song I'd go with Minstrel, easily. The song that got me into Tull (and subsequently prog), and still my favourite Tull track.

Songs from the Wood does not have one bad track on it. This.

Minstrel contains Black Satin Dancer; some people like it, I dislike it lots. I also don't care too much for Baker St Muse....it promises everything, but just goes nowhere IMHO.

100% agreed.  Their magnum opus.  The flow of the album is superlative, as well.  I just wish the remaster didn't have a persistent high-pitch whine (think 19+ kHz) throughout.  Mastering engineer probably couldn't hear that frequency.

Minstrel by far for me; the perfect JT IMO. I like Songs as well, but at times a little too cheery for me lol.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Turth. Minstrel is my favorite from Tull, Songs from the Wood never clicked with me. Very easy vote for me.

Songs From the Wood, pretty easily. Not a bad cut on it.
