Woods: Sun and Shade

Woods’ sixth album, Sun and Shade, raises some important points:
• Their best songs yet are on this record
• They probably do drugs too often to hit the mark every time
• Woods sound amazing when they’ve been listening to Jerry Yester, The Association and The Byrds, and less so when they’ve been listening to Neu!, Neil Young and Tom Waits
• Sun is better than Shade (and soft pop beats acid folk)
• The best songs on Sun and Shade would make a flawless mini-album
• If you’re the sort of person who likes music that makes you shout “TUNE!” rather than mumble “tone" then there’s more to love on this record than there is to disregard
