Did someone say “stupid f**king flute”?



When I say stupid f**king flute...I don't mean the flute as an instrument, in general.  I mean the stupid f**king flute in Jethro Tull specifically. Although that there is, admittedly, some stupid f**king flute.

Most western flute is stupid f**king flute.
And piccolos (piccoli?) are even worse.
“What’s that awful needle doing driving itself into my ear? Oh, it’s a piccolo! What fun for all!”

What self-respecting flute (ok, piccolo) player one day says to himself/herself "you know what would be cool, if I combined this w/ jazz"  or in the case of Jethro Tull (which btw, w/out the stupid f**king flute, I think is a pretty cool sounding band) 'Rock'.  Yeah, that'd be cool...said no one, ever.  :poke:  Some instruments just don't mesh well w/ certain genres.


Ian Anderson on why the flute...(don’t worry, there is NO flute playing in this)



Spoiler

I think you have me confused w/ someone who is baffled by the addition of flute.  I'm not.  Far from it.  I don't care about the addition of flute.  I don't sit here pondering it's meaning in the musical scheme of things.  I just don't f**king like it there. :no:

Okay okay. I already knew you loathed the flute in Tull but I thought your previous post was one of genuine wonder in why he’d add the flute to his rock band. I didn’t read the hate that’s actually there. Anyway... :hail:

Not much to get, other than kick-ass riffs and leads around a goofy fantasy theme.  But it still rocks like a mofo.

This thread is not fair. There are 11 equally,utterly, totally, completely, entirely shitty songs on Test For Echo. 6 of them shouldn't be let off the hook because you only want 5!

Working Man

Fly By Night

Closer To The Heart (studio version only...kicks ass live)

Limelight


:eh:  are these four not almost universally considered among the band's most noteworthy and beloved works? Like...CTTH is in my top ten, and the other three aren't far behind at all...

Well, for starters those songs you mention got radio airplay so it would make sense that they are among the bands most recognized songs. They've also been on just about been on every hits compilation that's been released. That said, it doesn't mean I need to like them any more or less than others songs that maybe didn't get more widely exposed.

I like Closer To The Heart too actually. The studio version just sounds so dated to me know after what they've done with it live over the years. There are some many good live versions out there. Hell, I even prefer the polka version over the studio version at this point.
