    I just set up my turntable for the first time in ages. While perusing my album collection I came across ‘Thick as a Brick’. I recall reading some scathing reviews on the album when it came out, calling it amongst other things, unlistenable. I can’t disagree more, this album in my estimation is genius. It’s a pleasure to listen to, the instruments and lyrics are both amazing. I have always been a ‘Tull’ fan, I love Aqualung, Benefit, Living in the Past, this album is a good as most music on the other albums and better than some. It’s a wonderful album to put on and just sit and listen. Ian Anderson has always been a brilliant lyricist and it shows on Thick as a Brick. I’m glad I put it on, it brought back memories of that time when my friends and I would all sit in a circle and listen to it on my buddies quad system. Give it a listen, it’s well worth your time.

    As a teenager listening to harder classic rock at the time with the likes of Zeppelin, Sabbath, Deep Purple and The Who to name a few, I was introduced by a friend to this album and found myself in retrospect not only digging the unique style and talent of JT, but introduced officially to progressive rock. I remember listening to both 20+ minutes each side several times and not getting ‘bored’ as the extraordinary musicianship and musical vibe and flow were simply mesmerizing. Loved it and still do!
