2 stars Singing "Run Like Hell" is not a job for Bryan Josh. This is the first thing that comes to my mind when I think to this DVD. On that song he's well backed by Heather and Angela who try to hide his difficulties in getting the higher notes, but unfortunately they don't succeed.

From a musical point of view it's not played badly, but making Pink Floyd's covers is always a problem for everybody attempts to do it as there are only two possibilities:

1) Play the songs exactly as they are in the studio version taking very few "licenses" as the Australian Pink Floyd are used to do.

2) Rearrange them drastically like the nice reggae version of Dark Side of The Moon that I heard from a radio years ago but I don't know who the artists were.

Mostly Autumn try to stick with the original sounds, and Bryan Josh is used to play like Gilmour for his own admission, but even if Roger Waters is not in the world's ranking as singer, Bryan is even worse.

There are a cople of highlights: "Julia Dream" with Heather singing is excellent. Also Echoes is not bad, but when they move to "The Wall" they fail.

Also "Pigs On The Wings", that's one of the easiest song to play with the acoustic guitar is not perfect.

The result is just another Pink Floyd tribute. If you are aiming to have all the versions of Comfortably Numb ever published by anyone or if you want to hear how Julia Dream sounds with a female singer this is not really bad, but it doesn't add anything to the Floyd's or to the Mostly Autumn's history.
