Thick as a Brick (2022 Reissue)

Thick as a Brick is the fifth studio album by the English band Jethro Tull, released in 1972.
The album is notable for only including one song, which spans the entire album. Thick as a Brick was deliberately crafted in the style of a concept album, as well as a “bombastic” and “over the top” parody of the then-prevalent vogue for concept albums. The original packaging, designed like a newspaper, claims the album to be a musical adaptation of an epic poem by a (fictional) 8-year-old genius, though the lyrics were actually written by the band’s frontman, Ian Anderson. The album was a commercial and critical success and topped the US charts.

50 years on and the album is still revered as one of rock’s and progressive rock’s most definitive and pioneering albums.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, ‘Thick as a Brick’ has been reproduced in its original format, the legendary 12-page newspaper. The vinyl is a half-speed master of Steven Wilson’s 2012 remix. Unlike any other records on the market, the album is set inside a broadsheet newspaper, ‘The St. Cleve Chronicle & Linwell Advertiser’. The newspaper includes many news articles packed full of continuing jokes, a crossword, connect-the-dots and much more.
