3 stars It doesn't seem like such a stretch that this band did a PINK FLOYD cover album after listening to this record. Bryan Josh not only has vocals that remind me of David Gilmour, but his guitar playing as well hints greatly at his PINK FLOYD guitarist hero.

"...Just Moving On" features those Uillean Pipes with the wind blowing from the previous album. Piano and laid back guitar ends it. "We Come And We Go" has Bryan singing, and playing some tasteful guitar. The mellow and fuller sections are contrasted throughout. A pretty good tune. "Half The Mountain" has a definite PINK FLOYD flavour to the vocals circa "Momentary Lapse Of Reason". Some beautiful flute (Troy Donokley), piano and guitar.This has a really lush sound to it. "The Eyes Of The Forest" is mellow with Heather singing. Piano, flute and violin help out. "The Dark Before The Dawn" opens with synths, and I must admit this doesn't sound like what the band usually composes. "Hollow" opens with light keys as Heather come in with reserved vocals. At 4 minutes in the guitar becomes more aggressive, it's great ! "Prints In The Stone" is a Celtic tune with flute, acoustic guitar and Bryan's gentle vocals.

"The Last Bright Light" has Bryan singing like Gilmour again in this slow paced tune with acoustic guitar. The song does pick up a bit then slows down again.There are some Gregorian chants on this one too. "Never The Rainbow" features Heather singing in this uptempo tune with organ and more great guitar. "Shrinking Violet" is a classic MOSTLY AUTUMN song with Heather singing with light drums and soaring guitar on this mellow song. Troy adds some flute too. "Helms Deep" has a good flute melody in this Celtic jig. "Which Wood ?" is an instrumental with lots of flute and acoustic guitar. "Mother Nature" is another great song. With dual vocals, piano and a beautiful chorus.There are some gentle as well as scorching guitar on this epic as well. Awesome song, great way to end the album.

I must admit i'm not big on their style overall but they sure have their moments. 3.5 stars.
