The Wooden Sky ended up on the “Oops, I missed this one in 2009″ list for albums that would have made the top ten list had I heard them that year with If I Don’t Come Home You’ll Know I’m Gone. This album was followed up by, what I considered to be, a less than par EP in City of Lights. It’s redemption time though.
“Child of the Valley” is the lead off track for the band’s 3rd studio album titled Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun and it sounds like the band has pulled themselves up by the boot straps, forgotten about the girl that left them and returned to their more rowdy days. That’s not to say that “Child of the Valley” is a barn burner but there’s a familiar sound that we heard on If I Don’t Come Home that was missing on City of Lights. Left me be the first to say “Welcome back”.
Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun is our February 28th on Black Box Recordings.
