Well, Songs from the Wood make you feel much better, while Tarkus makes me feel worse, so Songs from the Wood it is!

Not a fan of either, but if a gun was put to my head i'd pick Jethro Tull's folk album.

Songs From The Wood by a long shot. I do like Tarkus, though....just not as much as SftW.

Would you like some Bailey's?

Both are great, but the one I reach for more often is Songs From The Wood.

The epic, Tarkus, has grown on me a lot, not one of my favorites, but still pretty much awesome Heavy Prog, Classical inflicted, haha.
 
Songs from the Wood is nice, but not much more.

If Tarkus was the only song on the album I might have to vote for it, but as it is Songs From The Wood takes it easily.
