Is there anyone else who prefers Aqualung?

I mean, both are very awesome, but I like Aqualung a tiny bit more.

Taab definately but the new 2cd aqualung remix is just as good as taab with all those great bonus tracks

All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Tough choice....I went with Aqualung for the variety of material which I always liked about Tull.
TAAB had some parts that were a little tedious for me.

Thick as a Brick. I only own three Tull albums, but these are two of them, and both are excellent for different reasons.

TAAB is within my top five favorite Tull albums, whereas Aqualung is in my top ten.  Don't ever deny one for the other though - they are both GREAT albums.
 
Metalmarsh - what is your third Tull?

I admire them both, lyrically and instrumentally, but slightly prefer Aqualung. Always have and always will.

We actually agree on something.
 
TAAB is a very good album but Aqualung has many of the best songs JT ever recorded.

Thick as a Brick for me, Aqualung is great, it's just not Thick as a Brick...

Thick as a Brick. 
I always find that live versions of Aqualung far surpass the album, whereas TAAB is great either way. (Though if I had a choice I'd rather hear it live, for sure)

I actually prefer Aqualung. Love the folky vignettes and the heavier songs.

Aqualung without a doubt for me. I've never considered Thick as a Brick anywhere near as good musically or emotionally.

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

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

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.

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

The two are great albums, Aqualung is a classic of classic rock and TAAB of prog rock. Personnaly I prefer TAAB which is an unmatched masterpiece Smile

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

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