All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Released at a time when a lot of bands were embracing pop-Christianity (à la Jesus Christ Superstar), Aqualung was a bold statement for a rock group, a pro-God anti-church tract that probably got lots of teenagers wrestling with these ideas for the first time in their lives.

This was the album that made Jethro Tull a fixture on FM radio, with riff-heavy songs like "My God," "Hymn 43," "Locomotive Breath," "Cross-Eyed Mary," "Wind Up," and the title track. And from there, they became a major arena act, and a fixture at the top of the record charts for most of the 1970s.

Indeed, from this point on, Anderson and company were compelled to stretch the lyrical envelope right to the breaking point. [In 2011, Chrysalis released a 40th anniversary edition that featured a bonus disc of remastered album cuts, new mixes, and previously unreleased alternate takes.]
