||Classic Tull revisited|
I am a Native American flutist and recording artist and recently had the opportunity to spend some time with Ian after one of his concerts. He has been a major influence in my taking up the flute as well as a part of my style. This is, to me, an equal to any of Tull's work past or present and and to be honest I don't recall hearing any "bad" Tull music! Thanks Ian, Mark Thunderwolf

Although some of the songs aren't in my taste, this is a truly great album. The highlights for me are: "Aqualung," "Cross-Eyed Mary," "Cheap Day Return," "Hymn 43," and my favorite, "Locomotive Breath". And, like another reviewer has stated: the remastering is crappy. The tracks aren't mixed very well, and the volume level is too low.

||Sounds Like Nothing Else...|
even 35+ years later! I've been reading the many fabulous write-ups of this album looking for anything more that I could add, and maybe I have a thing or two. Firstly, the sound has not been repeated in popular combo since - someone correct me here - I'm willing to be ignorant/wrong - the stuccato lead electric, combined with the caustic but incisive lyrical assault, with a pile of FLUTE on top? I'll admit to only one fault for new listeners here - FM radio today is really a recreation of AM with content that used to be called FM - and so 'Aqualung' the SONG is heavily overplayed to the point that I almost never select it for playing, despite its perfection. But the LP has 5 other songs that are truly classics and put an indelible stamp on both the 'concept' and the 'music' - they are also so fascinatingly English sounding and will be forever - imagine if King Arthur had had electricity and hired a band - the favs are : Locomotive Breath, Hymn 43, Wond'ring Aloud, Mother Goose,& Cross-Eyed Mary. The rest of the tracks are possibly a bit less musically exciting, but the lyrical content always intrigues. I first heard this when I was 11, and when I was 45, I got a hold of a boss stereo and turntable - something I hadn't had in over a decade - this was the first LP I put on - 'nuff said.

||Good, but not Tull's crowning achievement|
As Ian pointnd out in the interview on this disc, AQUALUNG is not Jethro Tull's crowning achievement. If you listen to later albums like THICK AS A BRICK, A PASSION PLAY, MINSTREL IN THE GALLERY, SONGS FROM THE WOOD and HEAVY HORSES, you'll realize that AQUALUNG, like all the other Tull albums, was just a step in the band's musical development. I think Jethro Tull's music got more intricate with each album they made. AQUALUNG was a very important album in Jethro Tull's career, but don't think that they stopped having creative ideas since.

||A different way to make music!|
Ian Anderson is a great rock singer, but in this record shows a great inventive to play progressive rock. It's simply: An unforgettable work of Tull!!!
