A bunch of random lyrics weaved into one amazing 42 minute song. Lyrics like "We'll have Superman for president, and let Robin save the day" or "Make a man of him / put him on a train / teach him to play Monopoly / and how to sing in the rain" or "Your new shoes are worn at the heels / and you make all your animal deals / and your wise men don't know how it feels / to be thick as a brick." All of that (and much more) is in one song.

I saw Jethro Tull perform Thick As a Brick in 1972 at Maple Leaf Gardens. Phenomenal! Bought the album the next day.

This is Jethro Tull's best album. It combines the folk-acoustic flavour from 'Aqualung' and blues-rock jams from their early works. Anyway, still 'Thick' sounds like nothing else before. Also it yields best Ian Anderson's vocals.
Happy 40th anniversary! ;)
