A Passion Play is the sixth studio album by Jethro Tull, released in July 1973 in both UK and US. Like its predecessor, Thick as a Brick (1972), it is a concept album comprising individual songs arranged into a single continuous piece of music (which is split into two parts on the original vinyl LP release). The theme of the concept is apparently the spiritual journey of one man (Ronnie Pilgrim) in the afterlife

A Passion Play is a concept album released in 1973 by progressive rock band Jethro Tull. It is their second concept album after Thick as a Brick, and unlike that one (which was a parody of concept albums and prog rock), this one is a real concept album with no hint of parody. The lyrics of this album, much like many of Tull’s other albums, have been subject to many interpretations. A Passion Play Q&A.

Jethro Tull's second album-length composition, A Passion Play is very different from - and not quite as successful as - Thick as a Brick. Eliot's The Wasteland . The band is at its peak form, sustaining the tension and anticipation of this album-length piece across 45 minutes, although the music runs out of inspiration about five minutes before it actually ends.

A Passion Play (An Extended Performance) features new Steven Wilson mixes (stereo and . ) of the album, alongside Steven Wilson mixes of the infamous ‘Chateau Disaster’ recordings that preceded it. Packaged with an 80 page book detailing the album, the band’s 1973 tour and the Chateau recordings, (An Extended Performance) is a glorious way to celebrate a one of a kind release.

Jethro Tull’s album, A Passion Play, greatly resembles Fredo, as it sits in the shadow of it’s younger, better brother, Thick As A Brick, and is frequently overlooked, even by fans of the band, despite being a very enjoyable listen. A Passion Play, like Thick As A Brick, is an ambitious work consisting of one forty minute-long song.
