    I bought my dad a CD copy of Stand Up last year for Christmas or something like that, and yesterday I put it on while I was cooking some bacon. Suddenly I see why these dudes were so influential.

    Yes they were awesome and ground breaking at the time. I saw them do a show in 1973.

    I certainly have a soft spot for some vintage Tull, though I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan.

    Tull rule. Beastie is excellent, Aqualung is a great album. That whole proggy period in the UK and the US produced some epic material. Billy Cobham anyone??

    How can you NOT think Jethro Tull is awesome?!?!?!

    I have Aqualung on vinyl. Original pressing. My dad bought it the week it came out. Its glorious hearing it how it sounded when it came out.

    Ian Anderson is on tour with Thick as a Brick 1 and 2. And he's not coming anywhere near my city. :(

    So what did everyone think of Thick as a Brick 2? For those who haven't heard it, it's awesome.

    Just picked-up Thick as a Brick on vinyl with the full newspaper sleeve. They sure don't make album art like they used to...

    Great band, love their older stuff like "Minstrel in the Gallery" just as much as the synth-heavy 80s and the straight rock 90s, got to see them in Cologne on their "Catfish Rising" tour in 1991 (I think), absolutely amazing live performance.

    One of my favorite songs (not really very typical for their usual style, it's more like their "Rage for Order"-phase :lol:)

    If I'm in the mood to stand around on one foot and play the flute, then yes, I'm all about Jethro Tull. :lol:

    HUUUUUUUUGE Tull fan here. :yesway:

    "Skating Away" is one of the few absolutely perfect songs ever recorded, IMO. "Thick as a Brick" is a masterpiece, as are "Aqualung" and "Living in the Past."

    Just about everything up to "Stormwatch" rules (and even that album--the beginning of an apparently permanent slide, IMO--has "Dun Ringill," another monster tune).

    I can honestly say that Tull got me into rock music way back when, and that they occupy a special place in my musical pantheon.
