    Jethro Tull - Aqualung (1971)

    [​IMG]

    Released at a time when a lot of bands were embracing pop-Christianity (? la Jesus Christ Superstar), Aqualung was a bold statement for a rock group, a pro-God antichurch tract that probably got lots of teenagers wrestling with these ideas for the first time in their lives. This was the album that made Jethro Tull a fixture on FM radio, with riff-heavy songs like "My God," "Hymn 43," "Locomotive Breath," "Cross-Eyed Mary," "Wind Up," and the title track. And from there, they became a major arena act, and a fixture at the top of the record charts for most of the 1970s. Mixing hard rock and folk melodies with Ian Anderson's dour musings on faith and religion (mostly how organized religion had restricted man's relationship with God), the record was extremely profound for a number seven chart hit, one of the most cerebral albums ever to reach millions of rock listeners.

    1 Aqualung - 6:36
    2 Cross-Eyed Mary - 4:09
    3 Cheap Day Return - 1:23
    4 Mother Goose - 3:53
    5 Wond'ring Aloud - 1:55
    6 Up to Me - 3:14
    7 My God - 7:12
    8 Hymn 43 - 3:19
    9 Slipstream - 1:13
    10 Locomotive Breath - 4:26
    11 Wind Up - 6:07

    128kbps 41mb no pass enjoy!

    Jethro Tull - Benefit (1970) (2001 Remaster Edit)
    [​IMG]

    Jethro Tull suffers an undeserved low esteem in the pop music scene nowadays (That is, here in the U.S.), in good part because of the vice of not pretending to be the least bit lowbrow. Not to say that they are particularly highbrow, but they are intelligent, English, well-read, and skillful, all of which are generally undesirable in the pop music and media scene in general, at least in record and video stores. They even use the word "whom" in one of these songs!
    That faux-pas notwithstanding, this is to me their best offering. It is certainly the one that really launched them on a successfulmore… career in the 20th C, and their songs range from heavy and fateful, to gentle and tender. They were the kind of band that usually was listened to by the college set in the 70's and 80's, and not appreciated as much elsewhere.
    There was a movement among a lot of rock musicians back then to prove to the world that they actually posessed skills that could rival traditional "classical" music, exemplified by Yes, Kansas, ELO, and maybe best by Rick Wakeman. But Jethro Tull wasn't so allured to try to take on "classical" music because they could actually play it from the word go.
    They would soon develop a penchant for older English folk music, and showed the world they were unashamed anglophiles, thus wrecking their popularity here in the U.S., who were still trying to get over the American revolution. But this penchant hadn't yet begun to develop, and this early album was a genuine collection of sincere, simple rock music played with more skill and elegance than was found very often in this time period. Five stars...Robert Hoffnung

    Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick (1972)

    [​IMG]

    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. Mixing hard rock and English folk music with classical influences, set to stream-of-consciousness lyrics so dense with imagery that one might spend weeks pondering their meaning ? assuming one feels the need to do so ? the group created a dazzling tour de force, at once playful, profound, and challenging, without overwhelming the listener. The original LP was the best-sounding, best-engineered record Tull had ever released, easily capturing the shifting dynamics between the soft all-acoustic passages and the electric rock crescendos surrounding them.
