Aqualung songs Product Information
The leap from 1970's BENEFIT to the following year's AQUALUNG is one of the most astonishing progressions in rock history. In the space of one album, Tull went from relatively unassuming electrified folk-rock to larger-than-life conceptual rock full of sophisticated compositions and complex, intellectual lyrical constructs.

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".

||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.

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.

||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!!!
