5 stars There isn't much to say about this album that haven't already be said by many other reviewers here and elsewhere. Thick As A Brick is surely Jethro Tull's most progressie work to date. Well, A passion Play is too, but I think they were far more successful with TAAB than Passion... The band was very tigh, Ian Anderson was at his creative peak and did they deliver a fantastic piece of music! I must say I've always loved a lot of JT's tunes, but I'm not really fond of their whole albums. Thick As A Brick is an exception, since I loved the music as a whole (and, besides, there is really one track in the whole album, but many segments are way too different, they could be seen as tunes of their own too). Production here is quite better than previous releases. The cover is another classic and quite a novelty at the time, very interesting.

I think I should then write a big, detalied review about this album, since it is a favorite. But I really think there is not a lot to coment. Just hear it a few times and see why this one of the best prog records of rock's history. if you are fluent in english (specially british english, with its dry humor and wit) you'll like this CD even more. A classic album and a must have for any prog fan. Five stars.
