5 stars One word to describe this album: GENIUS ! Thick as a brick is Jethro Tull's first conept album based on a 45 minute song. It tells the story of Gerald Bostock, a little 10 year old boy who wrote a famous poem. I think Ian Anderson is a genius. He wrote this album in a short amount of time. He is also a great flautist. The other musicians are also great. From Martin Barre's amazing guitar solos to Barriemore Barlow's drum solo in the second part, it flows well musically. And the good news is that Ian Anderson is preparing a sequel this year about the 50 year old Gerald Bostock.
