For All We Shared
The Spirit Of Autumn Past
The Last Bright Light
Prints In The Stone
A very special release for CYCLOPS's 100th album. Mostly Autumn have already released two very highly rated albums and this release will undoubtably increase there already impressive reputation.
One of Britain’s top Progressive/Celtic Rock bands have produced a stunning new album. Mostly Autumn have already amassed an avid following due to their first two albums “For All We Shared” (CYCL 080) and “The Spirit Of Autumn Past” (CYCL 082) along with their great live performances which have captivated all who have seen them.
“The Last Bright Light” has masterful songwriting, instrumental prowess and great solos, stunning flowing guitar work, Celtic Rock and jigs, great vocals by lead singer Heather Findlay, long tracks and shorter ones. Songs about love and war, the unhappiness of broken relationships, and the wonder and greatness of nature.
Prints In The Stone is the single, a beautiful melody with flute and low whistles from Iona man Troy Donockley creating a pastoral mood. Helms Deep has a great Celtic feel with a bodhran intro which breaks into a flute led jig and is finished with a stunning electric guitar solo. Heather Findlay’s beautiful voice is demonstrated to the full in Shrinking Violet as the song builds and builds to an infectious chorus refrain with sustained guitar work. Mother Nature is the album’s 12 minute tour de force - a beautiful melody with great counterpoint between the vocalists which suddenly changes as the band pushes forward. A small accoustic interlude and then crashes of thunder set the band off again for a superb climax with dual guitars alternating the lead over a hypnotic piano motif.
