4 stars The Last bright light is the third album of this excellent band from UK named Mostly Autumn. I was really pleasent surprised by this album from the first time I've heared , I guess 7-8 years ago, and one of my fav from them for sure. Well crafted album , is a significant development of the band's progressive sound, definetly more progressive then their first two albums. Very smooth and elegant music, very similar with Pink Floyd, specially in vocal department, Bryan Josh delivers a Gilmore like vocal parts, but aswell the guitars are very like on the masters with nice celtic folky psychedlic touches. Lush arrangements, hammond , flute gives a very special atmosphere on this release. We Come And We Go and Half the mountin are simply beautuful full of depth and excellent arrangements, highlights for me, Bryan Josh voice is very warm and very good for this type of music, love it. Heather Findlay sing on two pieces and aswell she is very fine here. Lots of melodic lines, instrumental passages dominates the album in places, is even an instrumental one named Helms Deep, wich is very well constructed from mellow celtic parts from the beggining to bursting hammond prog with intresting guitar paterns of the highest calibre, remind me of Iona in arrangements.Never The Rainbow is another highlight besides those two mentioned before. Definetly a solid album for me, maybe for many listners is to light or mellow, but this is their sound and how they developed across the years. 4 solid stars, I really like it, warm and beautiful music.
