This review is from: Thick As a Brick / Thick As a Brick 2 [Special Vinyl Collection] [VINYL] (Vinyl)
having listened to T.A.A.B to many times to mention, it was a welcome sound to hear T.A.A.B2, and to catch up with the possible divergences of Gerald Bostocks lives. Ian Anderson, still posseses that certain something which defines old english rock, gentle ballads which tell a story right through to rasping rock chords which make you want to shake your hair, (unless like me youv'e got none left), a problem im sure Gerald does not have. After listening to the story a couple of times you start think youv'e been listening to this for years, such is the comforting nature of the lyrics, an old pair of jeans which you start wearing again, only because you can. So buy, listen and enjoy, catch up with whats been happening in Gerald's life, and whos knows, if and when Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull come out of retirement in a few years, as is the wont of 70's rock heroes, then we might even get a glimpse into Gerald'd dotage.
