4 stars The Spirit of Autumn Past, the second album from this English folk/space rock band is quite a piece. They have a very unique sound combining a great deal of Pink Floyd influence with a strong celtic rock edge.

One of the things I love about this group is how they incorporate all their songwriting and techniques into such emotional pieces. They are trained musicians and have a lot of progressive rock influences, but they don't make that their strong point. Their strength lies in their ability to write music that hits your soul. Every note is placed in the right spot and every note has feeling. Bryan Josh may not play a great deal of notes, but every note he does play is filled with his life force. Strong examples of this would be the moving solos of "Evergreen" and "The Gap is Too Wide", which might be my favorite song this band has ever written. It starts of very slowly and gets you in a very pensive state of mind. Eventually it builds up into a very epic and emotional guitar/bag pipe solo. It's just beautiful fantastic music, and pretty easy to get into. One doesn't have to be a musician to appreciate this (hey even my dad loves it!). Highly recommended.
