4 stars Why make a PINK FLOYD tribute album? Why not?

The thought of a tribute album to any artist can sometimes leave you trembling in your boots; this is how I initially felt when I first stumbled across MOSTLY AUTUMN's "Pink Floyd Revisited", a live tribute to the music of PINK FLOYD. Curiosity got the better of me and I had to have a listen . and listen is something I have done quite a number of times in the past week or so, enjoying the experience each time.

The songs chosen for the concert are a concise and interesting mix of PINK FLOYD material from the early years up to "The Wall". The interpretation of the music is competent, sticking closely to the PINK FLOYD originals while being sufficiently different to be intriguing. The vocals, while mostly adequate, are at times are a little below par - certainly not of the quality of the originals. This is mainly the male lead vocals; the female lead vocals are excellent and give a very different sound to some of these classic songs. The male-female duets pieces also add a nice touch.

My favourite track from "Pink Floyd Revisited" is "Julia Dream" - the lush female vocals giving the song a new dimension with a real folk music sound. "Echoes", one of my favourite PINK FLOYD tracks, is also well performed musically but suffers a little from the aforementioned vocal shortcomings. "Fat Old Sun" - another early FLOYD favourite - is a quite well done, too.

Overall I find "Pink Floyd Revisited" a very listenable album where PINK FLOYD fans should find something of interest as MOSTLY AUTUMN pay tribute to a major influence on its own sound.

Somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars from me.
