Album: AQUALUNG – 4th LP
Released: 19 March 1971 – 50 years ago
AllMusic: “The leap from 1970’s ‘Benefit’ to the following year’s ‘Aqualung’
is one of the most astonishing progressions in rock history. In the space of
one album… Tull went from relatively unassuming electrified folk-rock to
larger-than-life conceptual rock full of sophisticated compositions and
complex, intellectual, lyrical constructs. While the leap to full-blown prog
rock wouldn’t be taken until a year later on ‘Thick as a Brick’, the degree to
which Tull upped the ante here is remarkable.” Score: 4.5/5.
Turn Up The Volume says: Lift one leg while you listen.
