4 stars I found myself being slightly disappointed with this CD, not for the material it contains but more for what it doesn't. It is afterall the recording of the official launch of the Storms over still water album, so it was a suprise to find it only contains five of the eleven songs from that album. It also contains six of the bands other songs, which (with one exception) are already available on other live albums by the band.

Getting down to the CD itself, it is however a fine recording of some of Mostly Autumn's best material. Opening as does the Storms album with the excellent 'out of the green sky', followed by the very catchy rock anthem 'broken glass'. Two of the band's epics 'evergreen' and 'distant train' are also included and performed immaculately, along with a new pair in the shape of 'carpe diem' and 'storms over still water'. Another great version of 'never the rainbow' has also been included.

The album also features some special guests including Olivia Sparnenn's (of Breathing Space fame) fantastic singing and Chris Johnson, both of whom will later feature as regulars. plus backing vocals from Rachel Jones (ex Karnataka) the guitar of Ben Matthews (Thunder) and Troy Donockley (Iona) on various Celtic style instruments.

A very good live album which I would recommend to anyone, just wish it had more of the Storms album on it.
