5 stars Aqualung- This is one of the best Tull albums be far. The album is full of nice folk tunes, hard rock songs, and alternative music styles. Anderson is my favourite lyracist of all time and it really shows on this album. The concept of the album is around the fictitious character Aqualung who is pictured on the front. While the second side of the album deals with organized religion. The music suits the mood very well throughout and is easily deserving of five stars. However in my opinion some of the songs are a little tedious and contract from the overall album. The best songs on Aqualung is the title track, My God, and Locomotive Breath. Some other songs are decent but these are the main hits.

I purchased the special edition with an interview with Ian Anderson which is a neat addition to the album. He discusses the recording process of Aqualung and other stories behind it. He also talks about Jethro Tull's legendary rift between it and Led Zeppelin. It is a funny story.

This is an incredible album deserving of five stars. So far every album i have reviewed has been given 4 or 5 stars but that is only because I am reviewing the ones I like most at this point in time.
