5 stars One of the top five albums of all time!

Tull was entering a two year period where they would put out their two best works, Thick as a Brick, and A Passion Play.

Ian Anderson was at the top of his game, and he wrote amazing, seamless flowing lyrics and incredible arrangements.

The range of emotions in this album are amazing, the flute will make you cry, the harmonies will cause you to jump for joy, the keyboard playing will leave you dumfounded, and at the end of side two you will be in a labotomized state for an hour or two.

What makes this even more mind blowing and unbelievable was that it was mostly recorded live in the studio. The immense amount of energy is clearly evident in every band members performance, the various sections of the epic are so beautifully executed and joined together its ridiculous.

As you can see, I'm having a hard time describing the greatness of this album, it needs to be heard by every human old enough to comprehend music. ESSENTIAL.

OGTL | 5/5 |
