Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick

Artist: Jethro Tull
Album: Thick As A Brick
Year: 1972
Country:United Kingdom
Genre:Progressive Rock

"Thick as a Brick" is perhaps Tull's definitive progressive rock album. Born from a desire to really produce a concept album after the rock critics so dubbed the previous year's "Aqualung," the record features a rock first: one continuous song on both sides. The music, and the lyrics, are challenging to the listener and reflect complex influences of folk, jazz, and rock. With "Thick," Anderson and company broaden rock beyond the limitations of the short song format. (from the official site)
