The group remembered the recording being a happy process, with a Thick As A Brick (Edit.No.4) - Jethro Tull - Repeat•The Best Of Jethro Tull•Vol.II• (CD) feeling of camaraderie and Thick As A Brick (Edit.No.4) - Jethro Tull - Repeat•The Best Of Jethro Tull•Vol.II• (CD), with numerous htick jokes.
Reprise MS see picture. Truly a work of genius! Ian gets his turn to blow Thick As A Brick (Edit.No.4) - Jethro Tull - Repeat•The Best Of Jethro Tull•Vol.II• (CD) of his jazzy flute into the works. On another hand, the duper segments I talked about could be chopped from a good 20 minutes of repetitive themes and therefore Thick As A Brick (Edit.No.4) - Jethro Tull - Repeat•The Best Of Jethro Tull•Vol.II• (CD) redudance is spoiling the magic.
Old military sounding themes make way for driving rock bursts, brief orchestration towards the end blends seamlessly with the frantic build up which preceded it. There is, however, another joke I would like to talk to you about. Overall, this is far stronger than part two, and stands out as the greatest accomplishment of Jethro Tull. The band really get the best of all worlds onto this record; complicated time signatures, awesome singing, weird lyrics, brilliant solos and wonderful recurring themes abound!

In its place were labyrinthine epics about things like Greek nymphs, moon dogs and strange Russian hogweed. Rock music was suddenly taking itself very seriously indeed. Enter Jethro Tull, who since had gradually morphed from a fairly conventional white blues band into avatars of something altogether weirder.
Myth has it that Anderson was angry about this misconception. They seemed to believe the whole record was a major religious story. The truth was that three or four Thick As A Brick (Edit.No.4) - Jethro Tull - Repeat•The Best Of Jethro Tull•Vol.II• (CD) were linked by questioning the nature of religion.
But the rest were stand-alone tracks. We stopped trying to be the next Fleetwood Mac or Chicken Shack — in other words, derivative of Elmore James — and began to take on board so many diverse musical ideas. It was exciting and dynamic. But, by the time the s had begun, bands like ELP were a little up their own arses. Everything was too serious and overblown. The tenth track 'Glory Row' was never released on any of their studio albums.
It was a left over from 'War Child' recording sessions. It was issued for the first time on this compilation. It was also issued as a bonus track on the remastered edition of 'War Child', in Conclusion: What all I wrote when I reviewed 'M.
But, the the rest of the tracks are also good. However, it suffers from the same problems of 'M. Once more, incomprehensible and unjustifiable, their record label decided to cut their two greatest masterpieces 'Thick As A Brick' and 'A Passion Play' and reduce them to two very short extracts.
So, despite some excellent tracks on it, I'm going to give it the same 2 stars. There are other better compilations from the band than this. Prog is my Ferrari. I would not call this anywhere near essential Jethro Tull. For one thing, there are the same problems with creating edits of longer tunes that was found on the first MU greatest hits album.
