    What, was Thick As A Brick like a parody or something?
    Yeah, they got called a prog band so they said "You want Prog, we'll fucking give you prog then" and went completely over the top, they even wrote an entire back story for Thick as a Brick, based on a fictional poem written by a kid for a competition that recieved massive public attention and was declared as detrimental to british values and the like

    Fucking amazing execution for a parody.

    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.

    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.

    Some highlights:




    The last 15 minutes of the album is just pure magic.

    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)

    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.

    Zappa is actually very accessible come to think of it.... as in I am fairly sure I can find a bunch of people that will be able to laugh and sit down with it on.
