Library and Archives Canada. One of the all-time cornerstones of Progressive Rock and Prog Folk, let alone rock in general. They did not know at the time than “Thick” would be a tul album. According to the Jethro Tull website, the sequel is “a full length Progressive Rock ‘concept’ album worthy of its predecessor.

Newspaper Gatefold Cover is VG, no splits, tears or writing. The whole album consists of only one long song divided up into two parts. Which kind of rating can I use? His father is cast off by the independant son, who falls prey to certain ways It then brightens 13 minutes in as it becomes faster paced with flute and drums leading the way.

Well, after iethro histories, tales, feats and deeds, it’s time to rate for not becoming “the bad dream I had today”. I can’t really complain, though I think overall this part isn’t without flaw, but still definitely deserves 10 out of 10 because it is so creative, innovative, and well-mastered. It doesn’t have bric overall dramatic contour that a concept zs needs.

Somehow they effortlessly return to the original melody and proceed to perform fantastic variations on it. It may not be a perfect record, but it takes some time before a listener becomes familiar enough with the album to see how cleverly the band has stitched these ideas together. Perhaps to people this record is speaking more of teenage good old dayz than the concept itself?

The music is also excellently performed. On the other hand, this one has Anderson’s marvelous vocals a bit drowned with naive production; or perhaps it’s just his singing in this album that’s not particularly good.

The album holds up well with the other great albums by classic bands that came out in the first half of the s. Don’t ask me why, that’s just me, i guess!!

Still, for a high point of a band history, pretty much every other band has done worse than Jethro Tull. Then, the listener is brought all of a sudden into a quite rocking number in which the band not only Ian shows all its skills.

Throughout the ages its therapeutic worth has been attested by medicine men and all kinds of healers. Tull’s lyrics are always witty, which I find as an added bonus to great music. Jethro Tull later told the press the making of this newspaper took as long as the recording of the album. The themes and melodies that drift in and out of each ‘section’ are some of Tull’s most beautiful.

Jethro Tull Thick as A Brick LP

I like this segment very much. BTW it took longer to create the newspaper, then to finnish the jtehro. Thick as a Brick There newwpaper a few sections that I am not too fond of, specifically the end of Pt 1, but there’s too much good material on this record to be listened to. The satirical newspaper was heavily abridged for conventional CD booklets, but the 25th Anniversary Special Edition CD cover is closer to the original, and the 40th anniversary boxed version contains most of the content from the original newspaper.

I’m so tired listening the same melody over and over. Later and the reference to “later” in the tulk sheet is a signpost that the tale has advanced a generation bewspaper, the young character is grown to adulthood and serving as a barrister it would seem. Evans provides a stunning organ break as they continue to redefine the march theme without ever becoming redundant. This record album is inVG a few light scuffs and scratches that don’t affect audio condition. They simply dash through the proceedings with tuull unrelenting energy and passion I have rarely heard from them.

After a constant re-listening of this album, I started tracing parts where band recorded particular pieces of the epic, gluing them together in a studio. The experience is always as wonderful as ever. I own more Tull records than the two I have mentioned, but I will admit I never listen to any of the other ones.

I give it 5 stars, because quite frankly, whilst A Passion Play has grown on me a bit jetgro, this one is a bit better in terms of arrangements, and you could actually listen to more themes than on APP plus the tulll are not all over the place if there are synths at all.


The musicianship is of the highest order and the instruments – both acoustic and electric – very pleasing. Yet one of the great hazards of epics is the flow of the song.

Before you feel nervous about listening to such an album a one-track, minute albumthough, you need to know a few things. Retrieved 3 March I recommend this album as one of your collection. Indeed, the lyrics on ‘Thick As A Brick’ are quite militant, calling out things as they are, and constantly criticizing various aspects of society and the complacency of people.

There’s some odd spoken word and a few inexplicable silences before the acoustic introduction from the first part favors us with yet another appearance. Retrospective reviews have been positive. More so than even “Aqualung”, by comparison now an overexposed and somewhat dated early Prog artifact still riding the slipstream of its long-standing classic rock status.

And those songs are much better for me. He did this to win a contest sponsored by a mock organisation called the Society for Literary Advancement and Gestation yes, that’s right Thick as a Brick is considered by critics to be the first release by Jethro Tull entirely consisting of progressive rock music.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. While it does a great job on Side A of making the piece seem shorter than it is, too many times, I find bored with what’s musically presented to me on both sides. It’s the kind of album you can spin on regularly without being bored: AllMusic wrote that “Jethro Tull’s first LP-length epic is a masterpiece in the annals of progressive rock, and one of the few works of its kind that still holds up decades later.
