Prog Reviewer
3 stars With "Live At The Canterbury Fayre", Mostly Atumn willl start an awfull lot of live releases with no new studio material.

This album holds some of the bands anthems like "Dark Before the Dawn". Wonderfully played here.

A great song as "Evergreen" will be superbly rendered as well. But I have already said that MA sounds better live than in a studio. I just can fulfill with my sayings when listening to this good live album (altough there will be very few to none interaction with the audience).

None-the-less; the live reference for MA still remains "The Story So Far" even if "The Last Climb" from their debut album "For All We Shared" is fantastically played here (especially the guitar break of course).

One of their greatest and longest song unavailable live before this album was "Mother Nature". It was one of the highlight from "The Last Bright Light". Altough it is almost a carbon copy of the studio version.

I would rate this MA live effort with there stars. It holds some brilliant songs of the band but it is a bit repetitive when compared with "The Story so Far". Of course it is not really an official live album (it was offered on a subscription base).

"The Story so Far". belongs to their best live repertoire. Do not hesitate when confronted to the choice. "Story" is by far their best live release. Whatever album is in the balance.

Three stars for this one.
