Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick 2

So, this just came out and I am loving it!!

Thick As a Brick 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Along with the album, they've made a website to promote it, in the style of the original fake newspaper album cover.

www.stcleve.com - Parish Newspaper for St. Cleve, Linwell, and Little Cruddock (formerly St. Cleve Chronicle)

I love Ian Anderson.. if only this tour came anywhere near me. Yeah, he's touring and playing both albums.

Does this strike anyone else as ironic? Thick As A Brick is publicly regarded as a criticism on pretense in music. This was back in the 70's, when everybody and their mom was writing songs with titles like "The Ascension of the Necromancer". Now, here we are, 40 years later (when very few people are making this sort of music, and those that do live in obscurity), and Ian Anderson comes back with... this sort of music. Oh, how times have changed.

I dunno, Rush and Dream Theater still do sell-out arena tours, Roger Waters makes obscene amounts of money playing an entire concept album live with an army of session musicians, and somehow, despite being completely unable to write a lyric that's even halfway good, Arjen Anthony Lucassen still makes a living. Pretention isn't dead, it's just less visible. I get what you mean though, the point of Thick As A Brick is sort of missing today. However, Jethro Tull, despite not wanting to be prog, always got lumbered with that description. Maybe after four decades Ian Anderson's finally just said "Screw it, I'm prog. Have another concept album."

Concept or not, Thick As A Brick had some great moments on it. Hopefully this'll deliver.

The original is one of my all-time favorites. I don't think Ian Anderson gets enough credit for being an amazing acoustic guitar player.

I haven't been too wild about his last several records, though, and his voice has faded quite a bit. How does the new record hold up in those regards?

I received this album in at work. I had to take a couple glances at it cause I was finding it hard to believe they made a part two after so many years!

If you have a minute please check out my most recent EP - TANUKI here:

Any form of support is welcomed and appreciated

In 92-94 when I was a broadcaster on the air in OBX (Rock 102.5 FM), I used to get blazed and play Thick as a Brick in it's ENTIRETY on the air b/c they screwed up and gave me a psychadelic show ("Trippin' w/ Izzie") and I used to play stuff like that all the time. My audience LOVED hearing the full version of TAAB.

there's also this little band called the mars volta that's pretty popular too.

Is this a Tull album or an Anderson solo venture? I was under the impression that it was just Ian. Also, the original album was well received when it came out by both Rolling Stone and NME.

"Excellent!"

Yeah I made a mistake in the thread title. It's officially and Ian Anderson release, but the CD case said "Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson - TAAB2". So I guess I was a bit confused. But really, I see no difference whether it's called Jethro Tull or Ian Anderson.

I've listened to the record and the guy CAN still sing. Not like in the 70s, sure, but he gets the job done.

Thing is, even if TAAB was criticised back when it came out... that was because it sold tons of copies and was #1 on the Billboard charts. People who liked it "got it", people who didn't like it were the tongue-wagging critics. There was a wide enough audience that there was plenty of room for negative reactions.
