Also what do you guys think of Curved Air?
Fucking amazing execution for a parody.
Hahaha that's brilliant.
Prog as fuck
Yeah it's fucking brilliant, the lyrics are amazing, they actually bring you to think and to feel, and it was all done as satire and parody.
:derp: incidental glory all up in this bitch!
It's very ironic that that album is now considered to be one of the very best prog albums created in history, really
I know, it's really quite beautiful, and I'm sure that the irony was lost on a lot of the early proggers probably due to their pretentiousness that was being mocked as well
Well it's not that easy.. Jethro Tull as a band were inspired. It's not as simple as them "trying to be pretentious", they just didn't realise that they were actually an amazing prog group.
Nah I mean that all the prog fans probably started off as pretentious and didn't realise they and the bands were being parodied Not Jethro Tull being pretentious, fuck they were the complete opposite.
Prog as a whole has got stick for being pretentious. It sucks to be honest...
Critics don't understand that it's one of the most significant genres in rock music.
Listen to this from about 6:30 onwards:
If you guys enjoyed Thick as A Brick, you'd all enjoy A Passion Play, it's not as good as TAAB, but still brilliant.
The last 15 minutes of the album is just pure magic.
Are Jethro Tull gonna make a new album any time soon?
There was rumors that Ian had enough songs written for an album, it's just been delayed a lot, not to mention, with the condition Ian's voice is in now, we can't expect anything too good. All though the album "Secret Language of Birds", Ian's solo album is a very nice folk album. (All though Ian is still an amazing flute player)
He's still doing solo work isn't he
I have it but I've not listened to any of it yet
o he's not released a solo album in 8 years
Even if he did release albums, I'm sure they'd be pure folk. Tull seem to have gone off of prog rock, which is fine as their folk work is also pretty damn good.
Thread needs more Transatlantic.
I've found something guys... I really have.
Any "Avant-Prog" listeners about?
I feel a lot of FP is quiet about music.
Hey guys how do you like my new avatar
Winner. Because rating you winner is almost insultingly feeble.
However I'll rate you winner too
You might end up liking Jethro Tull as much as Pink Floyd, I dunno. Give it a lot of time.
