I never do reviews of this kind, but I am absolutely compelled to for this stunning live album; the first, I believe, to feature Olivia Sparnenn, former harmony vocalist with the band, as female lead vocalist. Aside from Bryan Josh, of course, the line-up also features Iain Jennings, Andy Smith, Anne-Marie Helder, Liam Davison and Gavin Griffiths - all wonderful here. Among its 19 tracks it features all but 2 of the songs from the 2010 'Go Well Diamond Heart' album. For me, this is Mostly Autumn at their powerful yet beautiful and emotive best. I know 'awesome' is a rather overused word in this context (as in 'that's so awesome, dude!'), but if you are already 'into' MA and/or their kind of transcendent music, I defy you not to think it of this album. Bryan Josh's vocals have been described as a bit of an 'acquired taste' in some places, but here there is a power mixed with an honesty of feeling. This is commensurate with the dedication of the album and reference to the bereavement suffered by BJ just prior to this recording. As for Olivia Sparnenn - what can I say?! I love her vocals on 'Go Well...', but here they are at another level still. Comparison is unfair but unavoidable here. Heather Findlay is wonderful and partly defined the MA sound; but, in my opinion, Sparnenn is no inferior whatsoever. Her vocals on this set are powerful, soaring; spine-tingling in places. On many of the formerly HF sung songs, OS brings something new, different in its own way, and very beautiful. If you have never bought a Mostly Autumn before, I would highly recommend this as a first purchase.
