4 stars Already on their third album, Mostly Autumn are the brightest British light in Cyclops' firmament. And on the evidence of this there is no chance of it dimming at the moment. Mostly Autumn bring in Celtic elements and mix them with some progressive undertones, so that the songs stand very much in their on right. Add to that the strong vocals of Bryan Josh and Heather Findlay and this is a band to be much admired.

Some times, such as "We Come and We Go" they sound almost Floydian yet on others (such as "The Dark Before The Dawn") they bring in the power of Horslips in full flight. By the way, the intro to that last number sounds very similar to Holst's "Mars" but isn't credited?.

It is an album that has beauty and delicacy ("Hollow"), or power and passion. They have been touring with Blackmore's Night and the added exposure can only do them good. This album will see them move on from being the Classic Rock Society's Best New Band. It has many layers that only become apparent when played many times, but even on first hearing it is an album to be savoured.
