5 stars This was the first album of Mostly Autumn I ever bought. I had discovered them through a Tolkien-documentary DVD, which included "Helm's Deep". I really liked it, so I wanted to know more about this band. And it wasn't a disappointment. Calling them a folk-band is a little misleading. There are some folky moments on this album, like the already mentioned "Helm's Deep" or "Prints in the stone", but they can really rock too on songs like "Never the rainbow" Lyrically the songs are all very moving, e.g. when Heather Findlay sings about her struggles with growing up in the fantastic song "Shrinking Violet", or Bryan Josh's tribute to his mother: "Mother Nature". These are true emotions you won't find in any crappy hitlist. A fine album to start with if you yet don't know anything from Mostly Autumn.
