    A much poppier effort than than his previous album, and ep, but still a fantastic album. Filled as usual with his hooks and heavy layering, driven by his guitar and percussion, songs like Cold Feet may appear to a radio friendly auidence, while tunes like The Struggle should please fans of his previous stuff.

    There are perhaps ways to defy expectations and still capture that truth about oneself, though that's not present in Two Matchsticks. Holding that against The Wooden Birds is certainly unfair in many ways, but still must be accounted for.
