I finally got a copy of the aqualung quad album. If the quads were used for side 2 of the 1971 release it would have been a better album. Disc 2 from the 40 year 2 disc release is great. Wish the quads were included in this release. 1971 is tulls best year but horses remaster and thick as a brick are the best releases probably

The title track was actually the first Jethro Tull song I ever heard. And I agree with you here.

Still, my favorite would be Aqualung.

I reckon war child remaster has the edge over Passion play. But of the 17 tracks, third hoorah, sealion, two fingers and bungle in the jungle would be the weakest tracks. Most of the other tracks have a lot of soprano very much like A passion play.

It's either Aqualung or Minstrel in the Gallery that I've listened to the most, but Thick as a Brick is just the most impressive album of theirs from a musical perspective. It's the kind of project I'm surprised is as satisfying as it is, especially after having watched it performed live in its entirety this weekend.

Once heard TAAB described as the Don Quixote of progressive rock, in that it's better than most of the genre it's parodying.

I was afraid this poll would come out. Since I love Tull's music very very much, it's next to impossible for me to choose which album I like the best. There's one album that suits the mood I'm in, the weather and the season, the place, company, etc. So, no vote from me.

I actually feel that way at times.....even though Benefit was the one I played the most in college , Aqualung, TAAB, Songs From The Wood, Stand Up, etc are all excellent lp's.

Aqualung! I don't see how TAAB is that much higher than it on the website; they're definitely in the same league but just trying to accomplish different things and I think that Aqualung fulfills its purpose better than Thick As A Brick (even though I very much like it)

Wind up, loco breath and my god are a fair way off the standard of TAAB. The quad versions are an improvement. Hymn 43 has only just started to interest me due to hearing the quad version too. Vocally it's far superior. Here's my take:

TAAB side 1 - 5 stars
TAAB side 2 - 4.5 stars
Aqualung side 1 - 4.5 stars
Aqualung side 2 - 3 stars

Aqualung side 2 quad - 4 stars
Aqualung 40 years cd disc 2 - 4 stars

For me, the thing with Aqualung is that I do like almost all the songs... but every single one I like better in an alternate live version. Most of the less high profile songs are much more beautiful in the 90's re-recording of the album. Aqualung itself is so much cooler on "Live at Montreux", as well as "My God" and "Locomotive Breath". And I prefer "Cross Eyed Mary" on Live Bursting Out.

Surprised Living in the Past is omitted. I know it's sort of a compilation, but very few repeats from other albums, mostly singles and b-sides and then there's the live side. My favorites change often, but I tend to keep going back to Minstrel and Living in the Past.

LITP is awesome but it's all split up on the first 4 remastered albums to which they belong to. I love it in this format. It shows everything the band recorded in the studio in 1968, 69, 70 and 71 and shows what the band were capable of over 15-20 songs and not just 40 minutes of album time from each year. I'd only recommend remasters such as:

This was remaster
Stand up deluxe 3 cd(has Carnegie hall live)
Benefit remaster
Aqualung 40 year box(2cd next best option but without quads though)

The only tull songs I prefer live are songs from the wood, new day yesterday, sweet dream from bursting out and Heavy horses from a Watchers of the storm

Well...TAAB and Aqualung are way out in the front.
I always liked the first part of side 1 on TAAB but imho when Tull does long songs they lose something for me.
I rarely play TAAB or Passion Play anymore. I prefer the lp's that have a shorter batch of songs.

I really hope there is a warchild and broadsword remix(especially drums) at some point. Warchild could have the 17 tracks from the remaster plus March the mad scientist plus possible other unreleased tracks such as Beaches parts 1 and 2. That would make a double album. The quad album should be included too. Bungle sounds better as a quad. Broadsword would have about 30 tracks taken from remaster and nightcap. Jackalynn home version and motoreyes should be included plus possible unreleased tracks dj and dinosaur. An much improved and consistent drum track over the 30 songs would finally make songs such as beastie and jackalynn listenable for the first time IMO

I think it would make sense to include it as there are many songs on there not available on previous albums.  I still wouldn't have changed my vote from A Passion Play though Wink

I used to have 20-odd Tull LP's - I've been down to 12 for years now - I love 'A' as much as 'Aqualung', 'This Was' as much as 'Stormwatch' - difficult to single out an outstanding favourite. Maybe 'Songs From The Wood' if I had a gun to my head......

Date Posted: October 18 2013 at 23:00

For me everything from 'Stand Up' to 'Stormwatch' (except for a few parts of 'Too Old to R&R...') are great.  'Broadsword' & 'Crest of a Knave' are pretty great too.  The first side of 'Nightcap' is about as good as 'A Passion Play', IMHO as well.  I guess if I had to pick just one it'd be 'A Passion Play'. Confused

'Crest Of A Knave' (duh, correction)....... THE BROADSWORD AND THE BEAST is a fine album from 1982 Tull. The song 'Seal Driver' is as good as any classic earlier Tull.
'A' should not be overlooked, it kind of reminds me of Yes' 'Drama', not they sound similar, just both from 1980 and both dividing fans.......

To be frank, the three things I really like in jethro tull are the voice, the flute and the acoustic guitar of Ian anderson. For me the quintessence of the band finds itself in the tens of miniatures composed by his leader. I know nobody else in the popular folk song to have reached such an excellent level in this domain. Just my opinion.

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?

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.

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!!!

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

... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

A Passion Play is my favorite album by anyone, so A Passion Play!

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.

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

Voted for APP just ahead of TAAB.

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!

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