4 stars As a teen I got to know Jethro Tull through the album-oriented FM radio station broadcasting in Detroit, WABX. I loved the songs, "Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath"--both of which received a lot of airplay on ABX, but found myself disappointed a few years later when I added the album to my record collection. I listened to the album a lot--each side anchored by one of the stellar songs mentioned above. Not a single other song ever registered with me; no other song remains memorable to me. As I listen to them now I remember them but I understand why I've not gone back to them. Just not my cup of tea. Vibrant. Rock and Bluesy with Ian ANDERSON's wonderful signature vocals, poetic lyrics, and dynamic flute play. But I find nothing else very praiseworthy about these other songs or their musicians. 3.5 stars rated up for the two masterpieces.
