Special CD/DVD Edition including a bonus DVD featuring 5.1 stereo mixes, 24-bit stereo mix, video of the making of the album, interviews with the musicians and Ian Anderson reading the lyrics in various locations. 2012 release from the Jethro Tull frontman, the sequel to the hit 1972 Tull album released to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of the original LP's release. The lyrics on Thick As A Brick were credited at the time to the fictitious child character, Gerald Bostock, whose parents supposedly lied about his age. So, 40 years on, what would Gerald Bostock - aged 50 in 2012 - be doing today? What might have befallen him? The anniversary "part two" album will examine the possible different paths that the precocious young schoolboy, Gerald Bostock, might have taken later in life through alter-ego characters with song-section identities illustrating the hugely varied potential twists and turns of fate and opportunity. Not just for Gerald but to echo how our own lives develop, change direction and ultimately conclude through chance encounters and interventions, however tiny and insignificant they might seem at the time.

The down side 1) why do it under Ian Anderson's name instead of Jethro Tull 2) where is Martin Barre? Was calling it Ian Anderson's just a way to get rid of him. Where as I enjoyed the record his guitar playing is missed and would have added much. Ian Anderson has always bin very cut throat with the members of his band. Like Neil Young but maybe it's why their music is still good because the art always comes first. But I am sure Ian Anderson will agree with a Neil Young Quote "sometimes the hardest part of my career is looking back at the wake of destruction I left behind me"
In closing. Great record. If you get the deluxe it includes a great bonus DVD. Lots of extra's but best of all another wonderful 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson!

Enjoyed the CD, but not nearly as much as Aqualung and Thick as a Brick 1. Now those two rate a 10 star... :)Published on Feb. 13 2013 by Avid Fan
