4 stars I'm starting to pick fruit of reading these Archives. A month earlier I had never heard of Mostly Autumn. Now I managed to borrow this (a debut? WOW!) and after the first listening bought Story So Far to which I'll come later. The description 'Celtic Pink Floyd' is quite true. Moody, long guitar solos finish the beautiful and autumnal sound. The only let- down to me was that I thought Heather Findlay would be the main singer, but she's mostly in the background, sadly! This band is like an answer to my dreams of a neo-prog band far from the likes of IQ or Pendragon (not to mention several metal 'proggers' I hate), with ingredients seldom heard - folk music. A very crafted big group of musicians, violin and flute included. It almost makes me suspicious how this music hit me - will it wear out in time? I hope not. There are some moments in this album I find a bit dull, e.g. an excerpt from BBC's The Lord of the Rings in the beginning of 'Out of the Inn', and instrumental 'Folklore' could end sooner. All in all, lovely music, great band.
