Certainly showing its age, in my day was revolutionary, but now kind of tame.
I revisited this album, after many years, to hear Ian Anderson's flute playing - he plays it like no other, giving it a trademark throaty sound. That style is so unmistakably Anderson's, nothing short of thrilling, and leaves me wanting to hear more. However, his album of just flute music is disappointing. His sound is much better in a rock and roll setting rather than on its own. Still Aqualung, Locomotive Breath and Bouree (a good flute song) are worth listening to again and again.

Released in 1971 - Aqualung would be Jethro Tull's 4th studio album. The overall success of this record (on both sides of the Atlantic) would mark a turning point for the band, who quickly went on to become a major radio and touring act.

Containing several musical genres, such as folk, blues, psychedelia and rock, Aqualung is considered to be something of a "concept" album, featuring a central theme of distinction between religion and God.

This reissue CD contains all of Aqualung's 11 original songs, plus 6 bonus tracks from previous studio albums.

Jethro Tull's name came from that of an 18th Century agriculturist. Singer/song-writer, Ian Anderson, was the major driving-force behind the band's somewhat eccentric musical style.
