5 stars "Songs form the Wood" marks the third time in roughly ten years that Tull reinvented their sound. They startied out as a blues rock band and then transitioned to a more progressive rock /symphonic prog style and then onto this album, prog folk rock. " Songs from the Woods" was at the time somewhat of a comeback album for Tull as they had fallen out of favor with critcs over "Too Old to Rock 'n Roll...". Regardless this is a fine album. Very eclectic and befitting of Ian Anderson's new found lifestyle as country gentlemen. There is not a weak track on this album. John Glascock on bass and Barrie Barlow on drums form a fantastic rythm section never to be equalled after Glascocks death and Barlows leaving. The lyrics are clever as usual from Anderson and this album has a very positive vibe full of colour and personality. Absolutely an essential masterpiece of progressive music!
