Stand Up - A-, this was better than a lot of hit albums of 1969, actually, but never mind me--I think Unicorn by T. Rex was the best album of that year, so...
Benefit - B/B-, relistened to this recently, it's not doing anything its predecessor or its successor did better, which was my old opinion as well
Aqualung - A, might as well forget about "My God" and just give this one the classic status it deserves...
Thick As A Brick - A-. Have always *wanted* to give it higher, but I can't in good conscience do so because it runs out of gas by the end.
A Passion Play - C+. My opinion at the time was that I was hearing too much TAAB recycled into the melodies. I only like "Overseer Overture," that stupid bit about the hare can go to hell.
War Child - C+, overproduced and overarranged.
Minstrel In The Gallery - C+, again, I don't think the band's doing anything new or better here.
Too Old To Rock & Roll, Too Young To Die! - B, see below.
The Broadsword & The Beast - C+/C, barely remember any of it anyway.
Under Wraps - C-/D+, there were a couple decent tunes in there but otherwise this is one of the most badly dated albums imaginable
Crest Of A Knave - Don't remember much of it either, I barely know what "grade" I'd give it at all.
1989 was the year of the silly Metallica-Tull Grammy debacle, so's...
