Then we have another excellent album "Benefit". Their debut "This Was" is good but is weaker. But all three albums are not properly prog albums. Their most heavy album and the best for some is "Aqualung". It's really a great album which somehow began their prog phase. All three are very good, by this order in terms of quality, with the first one as a masterpiece and one of their best albums.
These three albums belong to what is usually called their folk trilogy. About the albums released after the 70's, I'm not very comfortable to talk about them.
I think the best person, here on Sputnik, to talk about them is Jethro. I think he knows some of them. Once, I have read a comment of him, something about one of these albums that I can't remember which was it. So, Intruder, here they are my impressions about the prog career, in the 70's, of one of the best prof bands ever and one of my favourites, too. I really hope that I hasn't been to much boring with so many details. Cheers, buddy. This is very useful to me. Now I know your point of view about Tull career in the 70's.
It has pretty much the same sonority of their heydays. It's folk with a touch of medieval and it rocks as well. Another album that I love is ''A''. It was meant to be a Ian Anderson's solo album but to be more gainful, their record label preferred to release it under the banner Jethro Tull.
It's more keyboard laden with a violin added to the mix, and it contains its share of catchy songs.

Top Down Too Short. And in Ian Anderson showed incredible musical maturity with his classically-inspired, new age-influenced "Divinities". Tull also contributed a great deal to making the modern concert business what it is today. They were the first group to carry it's own PA system from city to city and make those costs part of the production expenses. They were the first group to carry multi-level staging on the road with them making them memorable for putting on an extravagant live show.
Ian Anderson has a style and a vision which he has been able to parlay into a huge army of dedicated fans that has remained loyal for decades. But with all the image, marketing and promotional aspects of the Tull story, one factor should not be dismissed: the songs were great.
