3 stars Songs From The Wood is a very enjoyable album full of (mostly) upbeat songs. The album starts out oddly, with Ian begging the listener to join the chorus if [they] can. I found it funny the first time, but now I just skip to the main part of the song. Jack in the Green is a song I just can't seem to like, but then it goes to my favorite song on the album, Cup of Wonder. The rest of the album has some very good songs on it, with the time signature switches of Velvet Green and the fanciful song The Whistler. Overall the album reminds me of an Irish Jig at times, very upbeat with a Folk influence that is much more noticeable than in their earlier works such as Aqualung. The album isn't as much my style as Aqualung, but I can still easily recommend this album.
