5 stars This is my first experience with Jethro Tull since hearing the track "Aqualung" long ago. I previously was not aware he produced such masterful pieces of work. This song/album represents absolute creativity and beauty in songwriting. The song takes unexpected twists and turns, yet flows nicely; interlaces previously used pieces later on in a different context; and explores the bounds of how far you can take a "single song". Bravo to Ian Anderson, and to all who were involved in producing it. I've had about a dozen listens through it by now (one month since I first discovered it), and I'm sure I'll probably listen to it another hundred at least. I've read the song (or maybe it's just the lyrics) are satirical, however the song does not come across this way to me. Just a well written epic.

This review is purely about this music, not the lyrics. While I do care about "vocals" - as in the persons voice, and how they manipulate it - I don't particularly care as much about lyrics (in any type of music.)
