5 stars A true masterpiece of an album, from a true legend of a band. Here they continue their winning ways as evidenced on Songs From The Wood. If it ain't broke, why fix it? Once again Mr. Anderson presents us with a very strong dose of heavenly folk melodies, mixed with an admittedly reduced but still very noticeable dose of prog.

In songwriting terms, I think these are Tull's best songs since Thick As A Brick, and that is not something that I say lightly. Each track is its own individual highlight, for me there is not a moment of filler anywhere. The tracks also have a special way of sounding immediately accesible, but manage to reward countless re-listens with their depth as well.

This may not be one of Tull's most famous, but it is definitely their most underrated.
