The two things which stand out most on this album are Martin Barre's guitar work and Ian Anderson's personal, yet still somehow timeless lyrics. For the former, the best tracks are probably "A New Day Yesterday" and "For A Thousand Mothers," both of which are still Tull concert staples, as is the Bach cover "Bouree." "Nothing is Easy" is another great song with some catchy licks and is a nice tune to listen to at the end of a long work week with an ice cold beer in your hand.
So let's put it this way, if I were stuck on a desert island with a handful of CDs, this would be one of them. And I own EVERY Tull album, including the solo efforts of Ian Anderson and Martin Barre. So enjoy.
Soon to celebrate its 40th birthday, but it still sounds fresh, no need for the philosan.
The addition of 'Living in the past' and 'Sweet dreams', plus their respective b-sides as bonus tracks, cover just about everything from that period of their development.
A well balanced album that was responsible for Tull's rise to fame, and for anyone who hasn't heard them before, this is the best place to start.
While 'Aqualung' is dark, cerelbral and slightly preachy, 'Stand Up' is straight-forward joy, a wide-ranging collection of masterpieces from psychedelic pop ('Jeffry Goes To Leicester Square'), classical-progressive ('Bouree'), rock ('A New Day Yesterday', 'For A Thousand Mothers') pretty ballads ('Look Into The Sun', 'Reasons For Waiting') all the way to silly hippy ditties ('Fat Man'). An amazing record.
