3 stars Well that FLOYD and Folk flavour is still strong here but the Celtic vibe is all but gone. And when I say FLOYD in regards to MOSTLY AUTUMN it's that "Momentary Lapse Of Reason"/ "Division Bell" period that they sound like.

"Fireside" is catchy with female vocals.it sounds better when it kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. Some brief ripping guitar 3 minutes in and later before 5 minutes to end it. "The Second Hand" is very FLOYD-like with male vocals. In fact the focus is on Bryan's voice here. "Flowers For Guns" opens with strummed guitar as female vocals and a beat join in. "Unoriginal Sin" features more of Heather's vocals with drums and sparse guitar. Electric guitar after 2 1/2 minutes, piano too. "Paper Angels" opens with piano as female vocals join in. Emotional soaring guitar after 3 minutes.

"Tearing At The Faerytale" opens with gentle guitar as male vocals and piano join in. It gets fuller and we get some nice guitar 4 1/2 minutes in. "Above The Blue" opens with sparse piano as reserved female vocals come in. A brief Celtic flavour before 3 1/2 minutes. "Glass Shadows" opens with piano. Reserved male vocals before 1 1/2 minutes. It gets fuller and FLOYD-like 2 1/2 minutes in. Guitar solo 6 1/2 minutes in and organ a minute later. "Until The Story Ends" opens with strummed guitar and there is a Celtic vibe here. Dual vocals join in. It's fuller 3 minutes in. "A Different Sky" is a refreshing and upbeat tune.

This is a talented band and there's a lot to like here, but for my tastes 3 stars is just right.
