Prog Reviewer
2 stars Oh man, I think I got one! I think this album is one of the most innapropriate titles. The songs are inspired by the Lord of the Rings (movies, probably). But, it's really hard to grab on anything relating to the movies nor the books.

Is it because it's barely folk? Not really. You could do a soundtrack for Lord of the Rings without getting into the folkish patterns. Although, it's the thrill of the whole thing don't you think? Lord of the Rings without the celtic/folk entourage is kind of a letdown.

Is it because it sounds so much like The Wall? Yes. Why would a band be proud of being an inch close to their idols? Dude, this band sounds so much like Pink Floyd, it boggles my mind with sorrow. Why wasting talent at soundind like a band, in particular The Wall period of the Floyd? They warned me Mostly Autum were frauds, I'm really speachless. They're actually happy to copy the concept and the sound. This is too much for me...

I cannot recommend this in any ways. Uno, no relation whatsoever with the concept of the Lords except for a few really good songs. Secundo, hearing a band proclaming their attachment to Momentary Lapse of Reason/ The Wall and trying to create something that's already existing is unworhty of your hard earned dollars.

Do not buy only if you're a fan of Mostly Autumn (there's gotta be somewhere) or if you wanna prank' a fan of the Lord.

With Magenta, Mostly Autumn is a band that celebrates their creative side by re-creating old albums, copying the attitude and repelling us by being that way. Passionate people must avoid or suffer the lost of money.

One of the biggest flops of the past years.
