4 stars First of all I must say I´m not really a fan of the band. Their mix of Pink Floyd with celtic folk is interesting, but I also think they never really matured as songwriters that much. Of course they are good to excellent musicians and their sound has its charm. I really like Bryan Josh´s guitar playing and Heather Findley´s voice. Every Mostly Autumn CD has some fine compositions, but nothing that really thrilled me much as long as albums are concerned. The Last Bright Light is an exception, though.

This is the only album by this band that I hear from start to finish with pleasure. There are some fine stuff here and at least one great epic (Mother Nature). although the Cd is quite long, there is far less fillers here than on other Moslty Autumn´s releases. The songwriting is not very outstanding, but it is good anyway and I´m glad I have this CD in my collection. Maybe I should hear their other works more often, but up to now they didn´t move like this one (which, by the way was the first I had). Production is ok, but not exceptional. The cover art is beautiful.

Although I still think this band never really reached their full potential so far, The Last Bright Light gives a good glimpse of how good they can be when they are at their most inspired.
