3 stars An improvement on some of the band's latter day releases Roots To Branches offers a more polished sound overall with perhaps an indication that there was more inspiration behind this work. The old stalwarts are still present as in Barre, Anderson and Pegg and the musicianship is as always, consistently good. JT's challenge in later years was getting beyond the ' mundane' and R2B's just about manages that. Highlights for this release are " This Free Will", the eight minute " Wounded Old & Treacherous" and " Stuck In the August Rain" not somehow as banal as other reviewers suggest. Anyhow a solid three stars plus a half for great cover artwork.
