thick as a dick,
This review is from: Thick As A Brick 2 (Audio CD)
First of all Anderson is a master prat
After 43 years his ego has finally overtook his brain cells.
Lets bin the great Tull and go it alone.
He had to have a big name album to try to achieve this
It could have been Aqualung 2 ,Stand up 2,or Passion Play 2 but he chose Taab 2.
Lets be honest if the IA band was touring another of his dreadful albums about DEAD CATS who would be interested.
This album bears no resemblance at all with the GREAT predecessor,it is DRIVEL with Lame ,unpassionate musicians trying to COPY the TUll sound
Im throwing straight in the bin after 1 listen

'The critics falling over to tell themselves he's boring and really not an awful lot of fun...'

Well, just to answer one of your points...whenever I've seen him on one of his Dead Cat tours, he has always played to full houses. By the way, do you think Glenn Cornick, Peter John Vettesse, Eddie Jobson or Gerry Conway is most responsible for that great "Jethro Tull sound" that these guys are so desperately trying to ape?

Where's Martin Barre? Isn't that the whole point?

Well MY point is that the "Jethro Tull sound" alluded to by our friend here has evolved over almost fifty years with one constant (Anderson) but with contributions from dozens of people. So carping about personnel is futile, in my opinion. Barre is a huge miss, but Florian brings his own gifts to the party. It's Ian Anderson, not Jethro Tull on this occasion, and I have no problem with that.

Thanks Flugalhorn. I suspected it would be a pale shadow of the original TaaB - and of no relevance. Your opinion is valid, and I shall not buy. Anderson isn't Tull, and Tull is more than Anderson.

If you actually did throw it away then I think that's sad.
If instead you still have it then may I suggest you give it to a charity shop?
Or perhaps you didn't actually buy it and only listened to clips?
I should say I've no idea whether I'll like this album or not. I'll buy and make my own judgement, but if you're right then my local hospice will benefit.

It is difficult to criticise an awful review like this one. It is barely literate and full of empty emotive statements with no hard facts to back them up ... all of which suggests that flugalhorn's ego has ovetaken his brain cells ... whatever that means.
