Let's kill this "Mostly Autumn are like Pink Floyd" thing. Sure, they adore Floyd and were influenced to play music by them but, unless Floyd released a load of tracks I've never heard with female vocals, flute, violin, Uillean pipes, tinged by Celtic folk, I don't find their music very similar. Oh, sorry, Brian Josh plays a bit like Dave Gilmour and their record company promoted them (unwisely) as "The New Pink Floyd". And Rick Wright and Dave Gilmour liked them (a lot) and they released an album of Pink Floyd covers. That means MA are Floyd clones. Does it ****.  But I love both bands.
 
As for Nimrodel, this is not remotely like Floyd either.
 
But my favourite IS a Mostly Autumn track which does sound a bit Floydian in mood (though not execution) and that's The Night Sky from their debut. Sensational.
 

What a brilliant post. Agree with every word.

My vote goes to....oh, I don't know. For a start, I wouldn't regard Starless as being remotely Floydian, nor Ocean Cloud for that matter.
