3 stars Forth album in their catalogue from 1999 named Forever autum is a less intristing relese for me as it was the prior ones. The sound was changing , don't know if in better or worse for them and critics, but in worse for me as listner, why??. Because this album is much mellower than the early works , even to acustic in places, is like they are bored to play their old metal from the first two albums and try something new ( a la Tiamat same period), I don't know why they turned so drastic from Headstones sound, who was a real solid album to this floydian metalic aproach. The album as whole is not bad, some good moments I can trace here like So Fell Autumn Rain, To Blossom Blue or Hold on tight, the rest are only ok nothing soecial in my book. Maybe they change the manner of composing because after Headstones they lost the guitar player and was hired another one Ulrik Lindblom and even a keybordist was invited to do hid work on Crimson cosmos and aswell here. Here we have some cello passages among traditional instruments , some flute arrangemets that gives a special atmosphere to the album, but even with these addings the album is not fantastic to my ears.The album is definetly more progressive in musical terms, than previous works , but less intristing, to much mellow passages. So I will give 2.5 rounded to 3 just beacause I like Lake of Tears and because is not as bad as might be at first listing, is the type of album that needs some spins even if is mellower than the raw materials from the beggining. Good album but nothing special as many said, even the cover art is less intristing than on prior albums, that shows exactly what is on the album, lazyness and sadness, no more Headstones or Crimson cosmos anymore.
