Review by Matti
3 stars "Celtic Pink Floyd" was the description of MOSTLY AUTUMN that I read somewhere before getting to know their music, approximately nine years ago. Not a bad way to put it, and it at least partly fits for the title track of this single. It's a mellow, slow-tempo folk-pop song featuring recorders that give it the Celtic flavour. Bryan Josh sings and he sounds a lot like David Gilmour on this one. Their other typical ways of reminding Pink Floyd - such as the spacey melancholia and the Gilmouresque guitar soli - are not present. This song is not very proggy, it's closer to the style of Clannad, for example. Nice if you enjoy peaceful, folkish pop music, but not among MA's finest songs. It's taken from the album The Last Bright Light which I haven't heard.

'We Come And We Go' is also more mainstream pop/rock than prog, The drumming and rhythm is more notable but the tempo is relaxed. One could at first have the false thought of listening to DAVID GILMOUR's solo (On an Island has this kind of mellowness) before the louder chorus enters. During that the song makes me think of popular bands such as COLDPLAY. Quite OK, a bit more down to earth than MA usually.

'Heroes Never Die' is a powerful and more progressive song from MA's debut album For All We Shared..., a perfect example of their (original) style that operates between autumnal and emotional horizon painting and catchier & rockier elements. The chorus sticks out almost too much. But here you also get those gorgeous, melodic soloings. This song was among the first ones for me and still is one of my MA favourites.

Good, but non-essential. What I have listened to their later material (not much), I'm afraid after this era in their career their music lost part of its serenity and folk nuances and became less interesting to me.
