In 2012, Ian Anderson surprised friend and foe with a sequel to Thick As A Brick, the classic prog rock album by his band Jethro Tull from 1972. Both albums about the adventures of the young poet Gerald Bostock who turns out to end up in politics thirty years later. come to life on stage, captured on this exemplary recording. In the same composition of instruments but without an original member of the old Jethro Tull, both suites are played one after the other. This is done with meticulous precision, as if it were symphonic compositions. Anderson himself, who is approaching seventy, is in top form on flute, acoustic guitar and vocals and is adequately and entertainingly assisted by singer and mime artist Ryan O'Donnell. Thick As A Brick one and two together form an unparalleled and inimitable prog rock marathon, not devoid of humor in a few intermission films in which Anderson also reveals himself as an accomplished comedian.
