However the suite “Thick as a Brick” is divided into two songs only, in which the dynamics change a lot, in spite of the main role of the flute which is the leading instrument all along the development of the composition.

The contents of the newspaper were written mostly by Anderson, bassist Jeffrey Hammond and keyboardist John Evan. I know, this music deserves it, even I like Aqualung more and this does not make me newbie in genre automatically, I just like it more I don’t like ending of first part, I don’t like drum solos here and few calmer parts. Retrieved 3 March The lyrics are quite comical at times, a musical interpretation of a poem, although I am not sure to this day what the the real story in the words is.

Thick as a Brick is my current best bet for greatest prog album ever; it sums up everything that is good about prog rock, about music, about life. Evan’s organ is superb, adding fantastic texture throughout. Yes, for example, includes rough studio run- throughs and single edits that are only worth one or two listens at most.


Fortunately there are great and memorable moments, specially the flute solos and intermezzos. Then he and a poet join forces to create a new wave and promise a new day, telling those below what to think. Retrieved 25 October But I do want to render an opinion and throw my vote into the rating average.

I have the 25th anniversary edition which is nice because it has an interview with Ian about the album as well as a bonus live newspaprr from Thick recorded back in Retrieved 8 November If you are new jwthro the Tull you really can’t go wrong starting here. It makes “Thick as a Brick” even more uethro when you hear about the less-than- favorable conditions it was created in.

Of course it will not change the ultimate rating which can only be 3 stars for me.

I like this segment very much. The album mocks the pretentiousness of the concept albums prevalent in prog, but it in turn became one of the greatest concept albums of all time. But in then end, the joke’s was on him, because it actually turned out to be a real masterpiece of progressive rock.

But Anderson steps in as the wild man to give us a “final warning.

So, once in a very while I listen to it again as now for the purpose of this review. The closest reference to previous work would be the album Benefit, but with that album’s progressive leanings stretched to the maximum and with a unifying vision that is probably unsurpassed in prog history. The lyrics are great and humerous.

The song is quite obviously made up of many smaller songs and put together afterwards which is not my favorite long song style. Despite all the success of Side 1, better composed and built together, I have a great cherish for the less tighter Side 2, which begins with trumpet sound being carried by the wind, introducing an alternative take on the first heavy section of Side 1, through some great jamming, especially by drummer Barriemore Barlow and keyboard wizard John Evans.


At the time, it confounded critics, who felt Anderson had grown too big for britches. So let’s just say the band had never so masterfully blended acoustic and electric, fast and slow, loud and soft.

Organ and bass are prominant. Tull’s lyrics are always witty, which I find as an added bonus to great music. After three minutes, though, the soft honeymoon is over, and the progressive folk textures that pervaded the beginning give way to much heavier rock.

The problem with Tull is, I don’t really like their sound too much. An especially famous and amusing section occurs halfway through minute twelve: That Bostock kid is a pretty good poet for an eight year old.

Anderson tells, that still nowadays people ask, what has become of the boy who wrote the poem. Woody Allen remains one of the masters of that trade.
