    A lot of diversity of sounds on that one.

    I'm another keen adherent, and have them all up to TAAB2. My favourites are Benefit, Songs From the Wood and Under Wraps.

    It is a real shame about Barre being dropped, and Ian's voice, because otherwise the current band has a really tight sound.

    Those who wrote off Tull after Under Wraps may be surprised at how good Crest of a Knave and Dot Com are. Buy them!

    It still stuns me how a middle of the road rock musician can write such sensitive and poetic songs as this:

    Ian Anderson, middle of the road? He's the cream of the crop. A brilliant man!

    I was saddened by the loss of Barre as well, but maybe the new line up has rejuvenated IA a bit.

    And don't forget Catfish Rising and Roots to Branches!!!

    I hope so. I didn't get on with TAAB 2, but I reserve judgement as some of the better albums have taken me several tens of plays to appreciate fully.

    I still play Catfish Rising, Roots to Branches and Rock Island, for sure, but don't rate them as high as other Tull fare.

    Three albums that I don't have are Divinities, Rupi's Dance and Homo Erraticus. What do you all think of those? Are they worth getting?

    Divinities and Rupi's Dance are wonderful albums. I think you'd love them.

    I love Erraticus. Typical IA. Poetic and creative. With good rockers too.

    Somewhat along the lines of TAAB2.

    Since I've lost most of my music library, I need to start actually buying Tull albums. Definitely my favorite non-classical artist. Pre-ordered TAAB2 and Erraticus as they came out, though, so I at least have those on CD.

    So sorry to hear that, and welcome to the Tull/IA club.

    The good news is that they're fairly inexpensive these days.

    Funny you should say that, since I was a Tull/IA fan before you joined TC. Only thing was I was in high school and didn't have any money at the time, so had to pirate the music.

    Still...

    I already have TAAB2, Erraticus, "Best of", and Aqualung on CD. Other than Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, which would you suggest I get next?

    Stormwatch, Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses, Crest of a Knave to start.

    Songs from the Wood and Heavy Horses are probably my two favorite singles from the Best Of album. Those (and the others) sound like great suggestions, thanks.

    Did you go for the 4 disc set or just the basic album?

    I got the 4-disc set

    The artwork in the book is masterful.

    Interesting, the first three (in reverse order) were where I started, COAK being some way off at the time. That is an excellent place to start.
