Do you think that the biggest change in the musical style between two adjacent Tull albums was:
1)Going from THIS WAS to STAND UP or
2)From TOO OLD TO ROCK 'N' ROLL: TO YOUNG TO DIE to SONGS FROM THE WOOD or
3) From STORMWATCH to A or
4) Something else?
Musically, the biggest change for me was between This Was and Stand Up.
Not only did Tull have the enormous change of guitarist from Mick to Martin, but the change of style from a little old blues band to the beginning of rock superstardom. Those who witnessed it just knew they were in for a treat

In a different way, the change from APP to War Child was big...not the music, it was very same cloth as proven by Nightcap and the APP theater box...but in that limited moment of time, and after TAAB and APP...it was easy to imagine that Tull was and would continue to be producers of single song album epics...so when Bungle and Back Door Angels leaked out....3-6 minute 'songs' it seemed a huge change.
The biggest leap, I think, was not between albums, it was between everything that came before...a great band with multiple strengths: originality, intelligent lyrics, strong riffs and melodies...and then: MY GOD...the song that revealed what Tull could and would do...a band launched into the sui generis stratosphere from that moment on.

snaffler: I haven't listened to anything as refreshing for decades (re Jethro Tull), as a couple of recordings of Martin's 50th Anniversary US tour! The songs sound so reinvigorated by Dan Crisp's vocals. I saw Martin last year and the vibe in the band seemed great

steelmonkey: I still don't feel like I have learned and integrated the 5 songs that were written for the opera. I wonder if and when they will ever be available besides the version snagged from a live show that I listen to now and again.

JTull 007: The Jethro Tull Forum is not on Facebook but there are some called The Jethro Tull Board or Group that have been quite abusive to TRUE TULL Fans. This Forum is very open minded and not so childish.

dryad: Hey, I'm shouting out because I can't figure out how to post in the "Hello, I'm new Here!" post. I cam over here looking for Samhain songs. I'll roll with "Songs From the Wood" if no one knows of something specific. I'll do the hello if I can figure it out
