5 stars My fourth Mostly Autumn experience. The production was rudimental, Bryan Josh can't sing and hardly leaves space for Heather to do it for him, and some of the words are just plain silly and laughable. The thing is, this album has probably more instrumental time than singin time. That means that despite the vocals, you're in for a treat. Despite it's flaws, this is an amazing debut, and a fantastic work. Originallity isn't a word I would use to describe it. It is heavily influenced by Floyd, Hackett, and Jethro Tull. But it's the combining of those inspirations on one album that makes it worth it. Someone mentioned the solo of "Heroes never die" as an almost rip-off of Steve Hackett's "Everyday". I too think it is, but damn, it sounds better than the original. The long tracks are definitly the highlights of this album, in a set where the smaller ones are at least very good. All songs have been fairly described by other reviewrs, so I won't bother to do that. I just wan't to say that this album is a magnificent sonic experience, gathering some of the best prog influences on one disc, fantastically performed by a talented group of musicians. A must-have for any Proghead who is sorry that his favorite bands are no longer in business or sold out to corporate interests.
