In mythic geography the 'primeval forest', home of all that is untamed, uncultivated and dangerous. In the pagan environment all large woods and forests were seen in this way and feared (even though they were actually very safe). Primitive fears were projected onto these places. Farmers saw them as places of wildness that had to be kept at bay, as they always threatened to overwealm cultivated land.

Paul Weller's second solo effort, released in September of 1993, and argueably his return to noteworthy music making. It the first album he had been associated with to garner critical acclaim akin to his work with The Jam and marked a return to some of the same elements. This album also met with popular success, charting to the #2 position in the UK. I highly recomend this album, without deference to age, shoe size or one's musical palate.
