Is This Jethro’s ‘Tommy’?

Jethro Tull Thick as A Brick LP

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. Now if only I could get into their other stuff more Furious and intertwining electric guitar, flute, and vocal are accented by superb percussion and occasional piano. If you don’t know this already, the album is one 40 minute song. Also shop in Also shop in.

The melody is really unstructured here. The song is quite obviously made up of many smaller songs and put together afterwards which is not my favorite long song style.

Muddy electric guitars suddenly become crisp acoustic ones, the flute becomes an undisputed lead instrument, and the keyboards suddenly have a much higher place in the band’s pecking order.

But there is more than newspapeg “written” humour. Yes, the album sounds the same and has the same style from the beginning to the end, but one must admit that the result is a very outstanding arrangements technically htick played! To follow the style of the mock newspaper on the original Thick as a Bricka mock online newspaper was set up. The tone is then moving up to “Spin me back down the years and the days of my youth. Ok probably this is the most unconventional album by J.

Without doubt 5 stars. And sinister, some albums simply fails to be seen as anything else than “masterpiece”. The music itself presents one longue composition, separated in two parts due to the contraints of a vynyl record. Deservingly so, because if this album were the benchmark that any other album had to reach to be considered ”Essential” we all might not have too much music in our collections.


I love Barre’s guitar ax Anderson’s flute as usual, but the inclusion here of so much Hammond organ courtesy of John Evans enwspaper fleshes out the sound, and gives this effort a newspaepr Prog feel.

jtehro I’ve had a Tull greatest hits album for decades and I must admit that the newspapper piece of the the 40 minute composition that is the single version is brilliant. Evans, Barre, Anderson and Hammond-Hammond Barrow is fine too, though he doesn’t particularly stand out sound like an insane unstoppable machine is it really true this album was recorded in only three takes? The remainder of the suite was written during the recording sessions.

Onwards, we almost reach the level of part one. The evidence – TAAB is effectively a single track in which the texture and mood of the music constantly change, as do the time signatures, but without ever sounding contrived or forced.

This is the “Do you believe in the day? The band seems to just jam endlessly and it gives me so much joy that even after 40 minutes I don’t want it to end. There is nothing I can add in my review of this behemoth that hasn’t been said already so I’ll keep it short. His stand-up years were especially prolific in that matter, as one of my favourite jokes from him can attest. There are a lot of popular prog albums around.

How could I say something like that? All of the musicians are at the top of their game, every note in place and none superfluous. Much later, of course, I learnt about the spoof – the interview with Ian Anderson, Martin Barre and Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond included in the record’s recent remastered edition is very entertaining, and the best proof of how prog was not above showing a sense of humour.

The music itself is very folky at parts reminiscent of Aqualung, but it goes far beyond the simpler folk tracks of that album, using a lot of classical influences. The album holds up well with the other great albums by classic bands that came out in the first half of the s. Even the rate was constantly increasing and with the previous Aqualung they had made a very big leap forward already.


Minstrels in the Gallery: Jethroo he and a poet join forces to create a new wave and promise a new day, telling those below what to think. Also, as evidenced by the two wonderfully long solos in the beginning of the second part, the drumming is mighty impressive. methro

I would say it is on par with hold on: Again, the bass playing is really nice as well as the sound really walks the music, as if it plays the melody. This article claims that although Bostock initially won the contest, the judges’ decision was repealed after protests and threats concerning the offensive nature of the poem, along with the boy’s suspected jthro instability.


Each minute is interesting and important, no weak points are found here, so how do you define someone who composes such an amazing piece of art? My favourite section of all is probably the one starting with “See here, a son is born”, introducing a deft change of mood from the wistful, pastoral tones of the beginning. One of the all-time cornerstones of Progressive Rock and Prog Folk, let alone rock in general. But I really think there is not a lot to coment.

The problem with Tull is, I don’t really like their sound too much. Again, this is the kind of packaging that makes a reissue truly remarkable and elevates the worth of this CD to indispensable status. The album has been reissued on CD several times: Thlck this point, we have no idea, but Ian opts for a lullaby awe!!!
