Interesting and solid album, but I thought Aqualung was more folksy and better.

As a regular listener of Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Haken, Dream Theater etc. I can be considered as a prog fan. Somehow I haven't really listened to Jethro Tull before. This album is really amazing; Just clear prog without becoming dull after a while. Though I think that the flute might drive me crazy after a couple of listens.

A very interesting example of the prog-rock genre. Developing a theme throughout two sides, with some flashes of brilliance as the album plateaus towards the end of side one. Somehow much more engaging and interesting than other long prog pieces.

The energy and pace of this album is remarkable, there is no waffly atmospheric nonsense to be found here, just straight up perfect prog rock.
