5 stars My thoughts on Thick as a Brick are best expressed in a metaphor:

Consider my house of classic prog-rock. Pink Floyd, Genesis, ELP, and King Crimson are the four walls, while Yes is defintely the roof. What's missing? Everything on the inside! Which is the best way I can describe this masterful album by Jethro Tull-- it is the element that makes a a house homey and not just "there".

Packed with wit, charm, ambition, energy, and style, Thick as a Brick is a classic prog present from Ian Anderson. The rock is straight-ahead and intense while the folksy elements are tongue-in-cheek, dynamic, and loads of fun. A vintage slice of classic-prog heaven.
