Reviews

Jethro Tull s famous concept album Thick As A Brick was originally released in 1972 and featured one continuous track spread across two sides of an LP telling the story of a young boy called Gerald Bostock. 40 years later in 2012, Jethro Tull s founder and leader Ian Anderson created Thick As A Brick 2: Whatever Happened To Gerald Bostock? . Following this release Ian Anderson took both albums on the road to perform the complete story of Gerald Bostock and this concert from the tour was filmed in Iceland. The show combines music, video screens and mime to bring Gerald s tale to life as never before and create the definitive presentation of Thick As A Brick .

5.0 out of 5 stars Arise Sir Ian Anderson 24 Aug 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen the great TAAB shows in Gateshead and Amsterdam I was really looking forward to seeing this concert on DVD and I am equally impressed. The sound quality is excellent and the first part of the show (TAAB1) brings back great memories from the 70's.
As followers of Ian Anderson/Tull will appreciate, Ian's voice isn't what it was a few years ago but this does not detract from the quality of the show. To me, Ian's vocals are noticably better on the second part (TAAB2) and the excellent musicianship from each band member continues practically note perfect. A great live DVD. I just want Ian Anderson to go on and on......how about Homo Erraticus 2 followed up by a DVD similar to this one?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it 23 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray
My first ever review on Amazon. I'm so impressed by this it had to be done. Ian Anderson and the tightest band you'll ever see or hear, perform the classic JethroTull Thick As A Brick plus Ian Anderson's TAAB2 in their entirety.

Not a bum note anywhere. Superb theatrics from IA and a few surprises along the way.

I have a s*** hot hifi and cinema system and many live concerts leave me unimpressed. Not this. Sound quality is stunning. As good as it gets. Trust me.

If you like Tull you just have to get this

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road 26 Sep 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I never became a great admirer of conseptalbums. Although reviewers loved it and some worked musically, the story was mostly rubbish.
TAAB1 is edible but TAAB2 is not strong enough to be played in its entirety. Actually there are not not many albums that are good enough in this format. Audio is really good, great band and thank god that Anderson have realized that his age requires an additional vocalist.but let the authors take care of novels . Musicians should consentrate on poetry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even smart phones these days shoot HD 28 Sep 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Standard Definition in 2014 isn't acceptable. Even smart phones these days shoot HD. Why release a Blu-Ray that has only standard definition picture quality - soft and with interlacing comb effects on distant shots of movement? The concert itself is excellent, although I could have done without the "Dame Edna" corny audience interaction on prostate cancer, he embarrassingly amateur video footage and the drum solo. Fortunately the DTS 5.1 audio makes this worth purchasing - it's a superb recording of a great performance. Unlike others I didn't have a problem with Ian Anderson's vocal performance, but I felt the second singer added for the performance was too quiet in the mix and do got lost. I'd have preferred Anderson even if he hasn't got the vocal range he used to have.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointment 22 Sep 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The sound quality is very good in show but Ian's voice isn't what it was a some years ago but this does not worsen the quality of the show. I'm not great TAAB fun and so i don't found many highlights from this piece of work...

Why Ian Anderson needs a sidekick for half of the lyrics is all too soon obvious: he can't sing properly anymore. He has the lungs of a Russian miner.
The performance is original, the musicians are fine; he has turned it into a stage play, which works well.
But that lack of wind when it comes to his singing......

4.0 out of 5 stars Really don't mind 28 Sep 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been following Jethro Tull/Ian Anderson for ages, the past couple of years have been quite amazing, especially remastering and plenty of box sets, Thick As A Brick box set, T.A.A.B 2 box set, "A Passion Play" 4 disc set, a couple of years ago add Aqualung
5 disc set, Ian's latest studio album, and now T.A.A.B. 1 & 2 in their entirety. By the looks of Ian Anderson has been quite a busy man.
I for one enjoy everything, to have the above 2 albums back to back must have been a hell of a lot of hard work. It's a great sounding concert with the usual silly things thrown in for good measure? I will let you decide, all in all a great concert, as we all perhaps know by now Ian's voice at times does struggle, so we have another singer who can sing Ian's difficult parts, with ease but i guess it's still
not quite the same. If you are a fan of either i would highly recommend the concert.
