Thick As A Brick 2 (Music, Audio CD) Price: Rs.395

In 1972, Ian Anderson wrote and recorded the Jethro Tull Progressive Rock classic album Thick As A Brick. The lyrics were credited at the time to the fictitious child character, Gerald Bostock, whose parents supposedly lied about his age. The record instantly became a number one Billboard Chart album and enjoyed considerable success in many countries of the world. So, forty years on, what would Gerald Bostock aged fifty 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. Ian Anderson says of the album, As we baby-boomers look back on our own lives, we must often feel an occasional what-if moment. Might we, like Gerald, have become instead preacher, soldier, down-and-out, shopkeeper or finance tycoon?, Adding, and those of more tender years - the social media and internet generation - may choose to ponder well the myriad of chance possibilities ahead of them at every turn..... . To coincide with this groundbreaking release, for the first time since 1972, Anderson and fellow musicians John OHara (keyboards), David Goodier (bass), Florian Opahle (guitar) and Scott Hammond (drums) - as well as some guest performers - will take to the road to perform the album in its entirety and, it can now exclusively be revealed that, in addition there will be a second part to the show where Anderson and the band will also perform the sequel.

A great follow up album

The below paragraph would make sence only to people who have heard the first album (Taab1), for the rest just take my word for it the First album is a masterpies of progressive rock.

Generally follow up albums or (Part2) type albums don't go down very well, more typical for concept albums. The trend is similar for movies as well.
But what we have here is a very good follow up that does not try to be better or different, but is a perfect continuation of the first album.

There are references to the original album, but these are very subtle.

But what we have here is a very good follow up that does not try to be better or different, but is a perfect continuation of the first album.

There are references to the original album, but these are very subtle.
On the whole the music is very much what you expect form A Jethro Tull album , very folk rock along with some catch electric jams.
Ian Anderson shins on the flute, and the arrangement is very precise.
Martin Barre is not featured here(actually the fist ever Jethro Tull album without Barre).
But this task is accomplished very well by Florian Opahle, the very young and talented guitarist from Ian Anderson Live group.

On the whole a very worthy follow up.

Bottom line
If you are familiar with Taab1, then surely listen to this
If you have not heard Taab1 , listen to that fist and then enjoy this one.

The Return of Gerald Bostock

Ian Anderson extends a much-beloved seventies prog-rock classic, albeit without any other member of the band that recorded the original. He has admitted to succumbing to a "Roger Waters moment", which is not really a problem, since in the eyes of most fans, he IS Jethro Tull. The sequel is pretty damn good as a stand-alone piece. Just don't compare it to the original. The playing is top-notch, and Anderson's voice sounds better than it has in many years. Which makes the abundance of voice-modifying tonal filters in the album seem a bit strange.
