From Brad1770
Looks like a concept album , smells like a concept album , sounds like a concept album so must be a concept album ? Well, no according to the band

Regardless its an awesome album lead by the wonderful "Locomotive Breath"

A dorky flute playing dude who stands on one leg would front one of the biggest bands in the world by the time this double album came out in 1971 , who'd have thunk it !

Although not my favourite Jethro Tull album there are some brilliant songs on offer here in the form of Cross Eyed Mary and Locomotive Breath. The album moves through a variety of musical styles from the rocking guitar soloing on Aqualung to the folkie Mother Goose which could easily be heard at a British Country Fair. I actually like the Chamber Ensemble feel and musicality of Wonderin Aloud having just given this its first spin in a few years.

Interesting album for a variety of reasons - at least 4 or five sublimely pretty acoustic numbers surrounding some hits with real bite and venom (in both the lyrics and riffs). Sets Tull up for a purple patch of albums which lasted all through the decade, fading away only with "A".
