5 stars OK, at first I didn't want to write a review, because those who know me know that I'm a big fan of this band, and I could be accused to be too much of a friend to be neutral. I agree with those who say that Angela is much underused, but hey, you can't force them to use a flute just for the sake of it if it doesn't fit the songs.

imo, "Heart full of sky" is the best thing Mostly Autumn ever did. Those who were disappointed by the previous album will be glad to hear that the songs are fully developed where on "Storms over still water" the songs were deliberately kept short. One of the finest songs on the album is "Walk with a storm", a nice rocker which leads to a folky bridge not unlike their early work. But all the other songs are fine too. Heather sings even more beautiful than ever on songs as "Half a world", "Gaze" or "Yellow time" (on which she also plays 12-string guitar), and new member Chris Johnson shows that he fits in perfectly in the band with the beuatiful ballad "Silver glass", and "Science and machinery" (which reminded me of Magenta).

I'll accept that there'll never be an album made by any band that will satisfy everyone, but I believe that after every new album Mostly Autumn made was a step forward, "Heart full of sky" is a GIANT LEAP forward.
