I can't say I agree. Brick represents one very specific style and era for Jethro Tull. It's hardly representative of their entire back catalogue. That said, it's my favorite of the albums that I know by them. I'm not an expert nor a huge fan, but it's probably my favorite prog rock album of its time (or ever, maybe).

why a sequel to TAAB? this will rise up people's expectations too much; and JT does not deliver the great music they used to. I'm skeptical already.

I fear the results as well, but dammit I've been waiting for that countdown on the website to end for months! I'm not writing the band off just yet, who knows?

Rating: 10 This album is the work of a band at their creative peak. You can hardly ignore the intensity of the drum solos and insane use of the keyboards, not to mention the other instruments each playing their own part beautifully. Anderson's vocals fit the nature of the lyrics perfectly, and though some may argue he doesn't favour the flute as much as on earlier releases, i believe you really have to listen to the whole of the through and through to see that the use of the flute is significant. Roll on part 2 of Thick as a Brick this year...

  One of the best albums created by mankind. One spectacular song with a length of 43 minutes. Genious!!!

  Musically one of the best Albums ever made.

Rating: 10 By far my favourite prog rock album of all time! Absolutely incredible musicianship that can be topped by very few.

I want to! I have to listen to it properly though, I only really concentrated on about 2/3 of it
