4 stars Almost another masterpiece from Jethro Tull. There's no weak point on this album, a difficult achievement for the band after their last fullstar album "A Passion Play". This is the 'bringin back prog folk' album, but far more complex. The album starts with the main track, Songs From The Wood. It's a great opening, including great overlapping vocals. Jack In The Green is pure prog oriented folk, and this song was full recorded by Ian Anderson, every little instrument. Cup of Wonder is a very interesting track, mainly the chorus, because of the unexpected chord sequence. I think Hunting Girl and Velvet Green are the best tracks from this album, along with the best Jethro Tull songs.. Hunting Girl has a haunted feeling, with awesome keyboards and funny guitar riffage. The main guitar riff would sound very heavy without the other effects. Velvet Green is just... awesome. Some happy songs like Ring Out Solstice Bells and The Whistler too. Love this album.
