Knocked my socks off when it came out and it still does.
One of my favorite albums of all time...

Oh boy the memories on this one.

This whole album was my door-way drug.  What I mean is JT's lyrical hooks started me delving deeper into music; exploring it in ways other than just simply "Hey this has a good beat, etc., etc."  I started paying attention to the lyrics. It lead me to a whole slew of lyricists in any number of genres, from Lyle Lovett to John Prine to Death Cab for Cutie.  Life has been a musical adventure ever since. But I digress.  The lyrics on this album. the ones that first hooked me, a young male at the time....were:

"Sitting on a park bench.  Eying little girls with bad intent. "

Say whaaaaa? 

That was the lyrically hook that had me.....

"Wait a minute what's going on here?" 

This was my initial reaction.  Ears perked and listening hard (no pun intended, heh).  An introduction (along with Led Zep's Lemon Song) into the more....seamy...{#Rolleyes}...aspects of adult behavior and singing (about it)...say what you will about the music, but I've always appreciated those who come along with a point of view to communicate....and sometimes yes, even to preach.

Right there with you. I bought this back in the day for the title song, but was captured by the lyrical diversity. Listening to these lyrics now I see how poignant they are... "You are the God of everything, he's inside you and me..."

Wow... I never really did get Tull back in the day, and I still don't.  Sorry folks.

I recently listened to the Steven Wilson remix/remaster of Aqualung, for JT fans I highly recommend it. It's not your average remaster, it's a big improvement over the original release (vinyl and CD).

Whether you agree or disagree with your assertion, that is a damn funny statement.

The middle section - with its discordant malign meant - makes me feel the same way that religion in general does. 

My God indeed.


So, the song has been successful in that way but I hope it doesn't come up on PSD again. Ever.
