4 stars This album, as Mostly Autumn generally, is criminally underrated. I don't see how so many people write them off as uninspiring and boring; to me this is a great album, with a beautiful and warm atmosphere and an uplifting general mood.

The band doesn't play very technical music, they tend to concentrate on creating pleasant soundscapes and enjoyable songs. Although I consider this album to be at least proggy, quite a few of the songs are indeed very straight-forward and the songwriting is pop-like.

That doesn't take anything away from the brilliance of this album, though. The compositions are very strong throughout the album, and there really are no weak spots. All of the songwriters have really succeeded, Heather Findlay and Bryan Josh as well as Iain Jennings. The music varies from beautiful acoustic parts to strong melodies.

The epic album closer "Pass the Clock" is the standout track, absolutely amazing. It has all the elements of Mostly Autumn's music combined with strong, emotional lyrics. Over it's 12 minute duration it really shows a lot of emotion and it certainly never leaves me cold. This one is also the proggiest of the bunch.

All in all, a very strong album. ****
