4 stars In many ways, an excellent CD, but also a disappointment. I personally loved the Celtic- Folk edge to their music, and this CD turns away from that to a more purely rock edge. At first I found the CD somewhat disappointing, with the change ofmusical direction, and would have initially given it 3 stars. However, over time, and many more listens, I have learned to appreciate the CD and now give it 4 stars. There are some excellent songs on this disc, particularly Bitterness Burnt, Caught In A Fold, Simple Ways, Passengers, Answer The Question and Pass The Clock 1, 2 & 3. Pure White Light shows that there is still a strong PINK FLOYD influence to this group as it is somewhat reminicent of early Syd Barrett era Floyd. The best direction change on this CD is that Heather Findlay is becoming more and more the lead vocalist. While Bryan Josh is an effective singer, Findlay's voice is beautiful. Unlike their prior studio releases (except for Music Inspired By the Lord of the Rings), there is no true epic on this CD. Pass the Clock really comes across as 3 seperate, but related songs, and isn't really an epic like The Night Sky and Heroes Never Die from For All We Shared; The Gap is Too Wide from Spirit of Autumn Past; and Mother Nature from The Last Bright Light. Overall I prefer their first 3 studio releases mentioned above, and I'm very curious as to what direction their next CD will take.
