Customer Review

on 19 September 2010
I discovered Mostly Autumn purely by accident and as this 3 CD compilation reflects their work from the last ten years, including some songs off early hard to find discs, thought it would be a good introduction.

CD #1 subtitled "Something For The Spirit" mainly showcases the rock numbers - including some absolute gems - Evergreen, Storms Over Still Water and Pass The Clock. Some serious rockers here and plenty of guitar solo's too. Definitely a 5 star CD.

CD #2 subtitled "Something For The Campfire" seems to consist of the band's softer, acoustic and more folky side. Each track taken in isolation probably works well between the heavier rock and prog numbers but bundled all together one after another was not quite my cup of tea. Only 3 stars on this one.

CD #3 subtitled "Something For The Candlelight" is a collection of the band's epic prog numbers and for me is the real gem of the collection. Tracks like "The Night Sky", "Carpe Diem" and "The Gap Is Too Wide" are every rock fans dream. A 6 star award on this one.

So overall a good overview of what Mostly Autumn are about. I would have liked to give the collection a five star rating but to me CD 2 lets things down a bit. In reality 4.5 stars but Amazon will only allow 4 or 5, so 4 it is.
