3 stars At about five years ago I witnessed a Mostly Autumn performance during a Dutch progrock festival. I was blown away by one of their guitar players who sounded like the second coming of David Gilmour! Soon I discovered the strong link between Mostly Autumn and Pink Floyd. On this live CD you can enjoy that very Floydian inspired guitarplay.

The first set delivers many bombastic and harder-edged songs: Out Of The Sky (beautiful Floydian slide guitar), Broken Glass (mid-tempo with fiery electric guitar layers), Answer The Question (heavy guitar riffs and pleasant piano play), Black Rain (powerful R&R guitar work, high pitched female vocals and a fiery guitar solo) and Never The Rainbow (bombastic featuring a swirling organ - and a biting guitar solo). Then the atmosphere turns into mellow in Distant Train with dreamy flute and a compelling wah-wah drenched guitar solo. Some other songs contain the emotional sounding Uillean pipes and the distinctive Mostly Autumn sound: bombastic and compelling featuring duo (male and female) vocals and Floydian guitar play (great soli at the level of Gilmour in Evergreen and Storms Over Still Water). The final track is the dreamy The Spirit Of Autumn Past (Part 1) with fragile work on electric guitar and piano along wonderful folky female vocals.

Mostly Autumn makes very melodic and accesible progrock, I love the tension between the folky part (bagpipes, flute, acoustic guitar) and bombastic prog with great Floydian guitar work. I am sure this live CD will please many progheads!
