Ah wow!! a real favourite of mine. Wish they'd stuck with this folkier sound for a bit longer. They did it SO well. Prog stuff was good too, but this had such a great feeling to it.

Their first 3 albums (Stand Up, This Was & Benefit) share a hard blues feel that would be seriously dampened after their big hit Aqualung. If you like the heavier/blues side of Tull go towards these earlier albums; if you like their folksier/prog side, the '70s albums starting with TAAB are for you; if you like them heavy but want clean sound and less blues, then their late 80s albums and anything thereafter are the ones for you. It is amazing how this band has such an extended discography but only a few weak albums and Stand Up sure ain't one of the weak ones.

Jethro Tull's masterpiece, it single-handedly killed any need for the creation of Hotel California. Sorry, Eagles, your album is sorta good, but it can't compare to this.

complete and total WOW!!!!!!!!!!! stunningly realized. massive playing all around. stone-cold brilliant songwriting. the sky was the limit for this band, but i think they topped out early, with this. when this one is over, turn off the hi-fi and go to bed.
