JETHRO TULL – Their Prog Rock Classic ‘AQUALUNG’ Turns 50

17 March 2021

Who: Prog rock heroes from Blackpool, UK led
by charismatic Scottish vocalist/flautist/guitarist
Ian Anderson
Active: 1967–2012, 2017–present

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.

Singles: Hymn 43 / Locomotive Breath
