FLAWLESS
M. Ryan | California | 01/20/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Masterful. Indescribable. The most amazing rock album ever. More than rock music, this is MUSIC. This is an album musicians appreciate. And writers will appreciate the incredible lyrical tale. Poetic, powerful, pervasive - this music, these words are in my soul. I am buying another CD because my vinyl is too precious to me to be lent out (most people can't play vinyl anyway), and I love sharing this with people who don't know it, especially younger people who have never heard anything like this before. And I doubt anything like this will ever come again, much like Beethoven's music. Do yourself a favor. Get rid of all distractions. Sit down. Close your eyes. LISTEN all the way through. This is an experience not to be missed."

"Classic extended play progressive rock cd that musically weaves back and forth and in and out of the main infectious melody."
One of the most interesting albums ever made.

"Not only does this Thick as a Brick mock other more serious concept albums lyrically, but it also mocks every other contemporary album musically! It is a rebellion against the modern Idea of the Song and the Album in general as being an unconnected collection of songs. There are no real tracks and the entire concerto is based on the progression of a simple musical theme. It is, in fact, the modern paradigm of what classical composers referred to as "variations on a theme". Leave it to the genius of Ian Anderson to let a riff run wild and take on a life of its own! It is possibly the most experimental and yet musically palatable album out there. It is energetic, funny, epic, and at times, even sweet. And who doesn't love flute solos? As an added bonus, there is a live performance on this release featuring some of the highlights of the album.

That being said, this album is very hard to listen to casually and it is certainly not for everybody, but you should definitely give it a chance, especially if you are a musician or songwriter. Make sure you get a copy of the mock newspaper that is featured on the cover (in this release, it is the bulk of the CD-booklet so no worries there) since there are some jokes in that paper that are referenced by the lyrics."
