Really awesome prog rock album. Doesn't really come as crazy or experimental as prog rock eccentrics such as Frank Zappa and King Crimson but this is still super weird and exciting.

My Favourite Track: Locomotive Breath

Other Favourite Tracks: Cross-Eyed Mary, Cheap Day Return, Mother Goose, Hymn 43, Wind-Up

Least Favouite Track: Up to Me
I really enjoyed this one. I never once got bored. I enjoyed the singer's voice and his vocal style, and the way all of the instruments played together. Flute was amazing, and fit right in. While there aren't a lot of songs I'll be revisiting individually, this album is definitely going to be getting more listens from me in the future
Come on, it's a classic and it deserves to be. It may not of aged as well as King Crimson or Gentle Giant but it is still fun and provides the complexity which i always adore from prog rock and don't get me started on that flute. That flute is fire don't even lie to yourself.

It was definitely a good album. I was never a big fan of Jethro Tull and their music, It’s not really my thing but besides that it is a good album that should be recognized as such
Every time I hear this album, I remember my dad.

I love you dad, even if you treat me like a retard sometimes.
