3 stars I initially posted a rating for "Three Times Seven on a Pilgrimage" on the related site Metal Music Archives. Then I decided I should rightfully include a review of the compilation as well. However, I couldn't determine how to edit my post. I realize this doesn't have much to do with reviewing this compilation on Prog Archives; I simply wanted to draw general attention to the problem. Over all, "Three Times Seven on a Pilgrimage" is a fine album by a band that was not prolific enough; I would give it 3 and 1/2 stars.

This compilation consists of cover versions and unreleased original songs by the unique experimental metal band In The Woods.... For my money, the originals turn out a whole lot better than the covers. IMO a cover version of someone else's song should differ from it in ways that are interesting. Occasionally, a cover version can actually be better than the original. The cover versions of Syd Barrett, King Crimson, and Jefferson Airplane offered here are too close to the originals; not a problem you would expect to encounter with In The Woods... The original songs turn out much better. "Karmakosmic" and "Mourning the Death of Aase" are my personal favorites, but it's all good. Despite my reservations about the cover versions, In The Woods... always made interesting, enjoyable music in their too brief career. "Three Times Seven On A Pilgrimage" is no exception.
