5 stars This must be said the Thick As A Brick is only album from top 5 who actually deserves to be there. It maybe isn't best album ever made but it is fore sure one of the best and the best from Jethro Tull. Two times 20 minutes long song. I have heard a lot of highly praised epic songs and found that many of them are actually boring or have some other side effect like giving you headache. But no, this is not the case with Thick As A Brick. It has everything, intriguing lyrics (excellent vocal performance by Ian Anderson) , excellent complex music with lots of themes , melodies and rhythm changes. I don't know what else to say, how to describe 40 minutes long song without writhing three pages . Well I don't have time to write three pages so maybe I can only add what prog reviewer richardh wrote "I cannot think of one thing that makes this not deserving of 5 stars" and I cannot agree with him more.
Archangel | 5/5 |
