Excellent, though maybe not for those who prefer his more 'musical' work

I bought Manafon even though it had mixed reviews, and loved it. Admittedly one needs to be in the right mood to enjoy the album, unlike 'Secrets of the beehive' or similar that I could listen to at any time.
After a few years of enjoying Manafon, I finally took the plunge for Died In The Wool. If you like Manafon, my guess is you'll like this. If you don't, you probably won't like this. It builds upon the first album (even remixing some of the same songs) and then goes further into the forest.
Sometimes I get bored of listening to the same old music (guitar, melody, choruses, etc) and then I like to fire up this album.
