In-your-face punchy and energetic album, kinda like Zepp's first albums.
The playing is brillant as ever in JT and the songwriting too. What brings this down a bit is the poor audio quality but anyway a great album!

One of their most straightforward albums. Full of good songs, but the CD version is the one to get as it includes, living in the past, which is Jethro tull's greatest single. Good stuff.

Weaving more folk and less blues into their unique style, this is a different, sunnier record than both its predecessor and successor. Pretty strong throughout, not much I want to skip here. Bonus points for artwork, especially the pop-up sleeve on the vinyl edition.

Great songwriting! Would be better appreciated by audiences today. Ian Anderson is not usually thought of as a singer-songwriter but "Look Into the Sun", "We Used to Know", "Reasons for Waiting" suggest otherwise.

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.
