4 stars First of all, I'm new to Jethro Tull. What? Yes I'm a newbie. Why? Cuz I had been chasing my own tail for a couple of years. I'm still pretty much determined about catching it someday too. I mean my tail. I know it is there, I just can't decide its perfect location.

Now let me tell you something dear reader, if this is a rock album, one piece on album idea is not the best idea ever. You'll lose your temper at some point and it won't be "rocking" anymore, you'll need slow parts and the ones that you want to dance in such a gay way. That's the first thing this album does. Gives you cool folk melodies and some heavy rock parts and mellow parts, then you end up looking at the ceiling and say "God I feel high.". It's the friggin power of good composition, I'm telling you. Or the pots you've been hiding from your mama.

I'm trying to act like I'm not listening to these MP3 files named part1 and part2, instead I try to look at it as a whole. If I didn't I could say that there's a 90% chance that you'll like part1 better than part2. Actually it sometimes surprises me how they can have some more to say when the part1 is over. But they have.

The last thing about this is one of the best artworks I've ever seen. Creating a newspaper telling about the album and the Jethro Tull, is such a great idea and it's finely done.

And the lyrics! They're fun and cool. Talking about the society's power on your decisions I think. Saying don't trust anyone. OK Jethro but I don't trust you either.

So OK I know that most of you already gave a big shot to this album. But this review was kinda fooling around anyway. I should chase girls or something, I'm only 18.

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection, oh baby yes baby.
