5 stars Another great by Jethro Tull. "A Passion Play" is really divided into 2 segments. The first is in the same vein musically and in structure of "Thick As A Brick", while the second part begins to take the shape more of a stage musical and storytelling. This one along with Songs from the wood are my fav. Despite the fact that some reviewers are not so pleased by this album, i find it very catchy, more on theatrical side, but very well done. Here JT try to explore new sounds and most of the time succeded. On the other hand, it is quite good instrumentally. Jethro Tull were always good musically, and here is clear they develop complicated music, folkish prog at the highest level. In the end i rate this one 5 stars, because i relly enjoy this album more than Benefit or Aqualong. Here Jt were in the front line of prog, no doubt. Sorry if i deseppoint some reviewers with this rate, but for sure i pleased others. A masterpiece of prog, and among the best Jethro Tull albums.
