Thick as a Brick is the fifth studio album by the British rock band Jethro Tull, released in March 1972. The album contains a continuous piece of music, split over two sides of an LP record, and is a parody of the concept album genre. The original packaging, designed like a newspaper, claims the album to be a musical adaptation of an epic poem by fictional eight-year-old genius Gerald Bostock, though the lyrics were actually written by the band's frontman, Ian Anderson.

Thick as a Brick is perhaps Jethro Tull’s definitive progressive rock album. The lyrical incohesiveness, far greater than Aqualung, leads Craig Thomas, who penned Tull’s 25th Anniversary Set booklet, to seriously question whether it is properly deemed a concept album. Rather, he views it more of an adaptation of the kind of free-jaz. mprovisations of the 1960. Indeed, several segments were recorded in just one improvisional take.

Produced by Terry Ellis & Ian Anderson. Album Thick as a Brick. Thick as a Brick Lyrics. Really don't mind if you sit this one out My word's but a whisper, your deafness a shout I may make you feel but I can't make you think Your sperm's in the gutter, your love's in the sink So you ride yourselves over the fields And you make all your animal deals And your wise. men don't know how it feels. To be thick as a brick. About Thick as a Brick. When, much to Ian Anderson’s chagrin, critics called the band’s 1971 release, Aqualung, a concept album; Anderson decided to respond with the bombastic prog-epic parody, Thick as a Brick. Despite it’s origins, the 44 minute song, the first to take up both sides of a record, proved to be a groundbreaking achievement.

Jethro Tull's first LP-length epic is a masterpiece in the annals of progressive rock, and one of the few works of its kind that still holds up decades later. Mixing hard rock and English folk music with classical influences, set to ess lyrics so dense with imagery that one might spend weeks pondering their meaning - assuming one feels the need to do so - the group created a dazzling tour de force, at once playful, profound, and challenging, without overwhelming the listener.

Jethro Tull wasn't the first to use the newspaper theme for album art: The Four Seasons 1969 album Genuine Imitation Life Gazette was made to look like a newspaper with lyrics to the songs appearing as stories. It even had a comics-section insert. In 2012, Ian Anderson released a sequel called Thick As A Brick 2 - Whatever Happened To Gerald Bostock? The album presents various outcomes for the now 48-year-old Bostock, including banker, preacher, soldier, and shop owner.

Lyrics to "Thick As A Brick (Part 1)" song by Jethro Tull: Really don't mind if you sit this one out My words but a whisper, your deafness a shout I may make . .So you ride yourselves over the fields And you make all your animal deals And your wise men don't know how it feels To be thick as a brick.

But Jethro Tull mainman Ian Anderson believes there’s a common thread. Monty Python lampooned the British way of life, says Anderson. We were spoofing the idea of the concept album, but in a fun way that didn’t totally mock it. It’s often been said that the seeds for 1972’s Thick As A Brick (the band’s fifth album) were sown when its predecessor, ’71’s Aqualung, was wrongly perceived as a fully-blown conceptual piece. Myth has it that Anderson was angry about this.
