Album Review

Springsteen, Dylan and Americana fans will find nothing unauthentic about James Maddock's brand of singer-songwriter music from Leicester, England which goes by the brand name, Wood. The verse to the opener "Stay You, " is Boss-ified, while "Whole Lot To Think About" is a country-Neil Young moment (Maddock must've heard "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" a time or two). With his influences on the sleeve of his peasant shirt, Maddock's dreamy, gentle songs sound familiar-it's impossible not to imagine his musings as outtakes from the Jackson Browne/Eagles songbooks. And that's the problem: Wood's best songs ("Straight Line" has a Fleetwood Mac/"Landslide"-feel; "Knock on the Head" could be an inverted "Going to California" ) sound like retreads of others'-and those are only the first four! Ultimately, Maddock will have to invent something he can claim as his own, but for now he's picked a primo crop to emulate.

Customer Reviews

A melodic classic....

James Maddock is truly on the the world's best songwriters. These songs are so well crafted..., the melodies, lyrics and harmonies. People don't make records like this anymore.... I consider this one the great records of the last decade for anyone who appreciates singer/songwriter music.

Fabulous record...NOT to be confused with Chris Brown

Wistful but catchy pop songs played by a straightforward rock combo. If you like Crowded House, Del Amitri, myeb even Counting Crows--try it out. "Stay You" is a winner.
