iTunes Review

While Jethro Tull’s 1971 album is peppered with acoustic turns—bowing to jazz-folk heroes like Roy Harper—it’s the sweltering power chords and frontman Ian Anderson’s tough vocals that make it a rock ’n’ roll Goliath. The chugging “Locomotive Breath” and the dirty thump of “Hymn 43” provide metallic KOs, and the rifftastic title tune is a full-on mini-rock opera with gentle breakdowns and tempo shifts. Central themes challenge organized religions, yet there’s a Dickensian quality to many of the lyrics, especially on the grimy “Cross-Eyed Mary,” which details London street urchins.

Aqualung (Bonus Track Version)

Great to have in my Itunes collection. I saw this group EVERYTIME they hit the San Antonio area back in the early 1970's and somehow each performance seemed better than the one before. Heck, even the shows I don't quite remember all of were a blast. Somehow Ian managed to gather together THE MOST talented musicians and for a lengthy period of time put out some of if not THE finest music of a period of time when there was a LOT of great music being made. If I had to pick my favorite 5 bands, Jethro Tull would be one of them and this album in one of my favorite two this band produced. Though later the group experimented in areas that I didn't really appreciate, for a lengthy spell they were indeed one of if not the best band around. I am not saying their latter and current productions are better or worse, I merely am stating that either I didn't "get" where they were going or because of ignorance I was unable to. No matter the album or time frame there has always been one constant, the skill of each member of Jethro Tull has always been unsurpassed in skill.
Another thing about Jethro Tull is in "categorizing" the group. They weren't really a Rock and Roll band and they weren't really a Blues band, they were and are unique and original in every respect. Great group of extremely talented musicians and if one band member left you could rest assured that somehow Ian would find another of at least equal skill to replace him with. I feel blessed by simply being alive when this group was in its (in my mind), "prime".

Great!

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Jethro Tull were a unique phenomenon in popular music history. Their mix of hard rock; folk melodies; blues licks; surreal, impossibly dense lyrics; and overall profundity defied easy analysis, but that didn't dissuade fans from giving them 11 gold and five platinum albums. At the same time, critics rarely took them seriously, and they were off the cutting edge of popular music since the end of the 1970s. But no record store in the country would want to be without multiple copies of each of their...
