Nothing new under the sun, and numerous ballads are haunting the place again. It's almost like if
it was an Olivia Sparnenn's solo album (pretty much Pat Benatar kinda vocals). I'm tired of her
trying to sound like Heather Findlay. I miss that founder female singer who's vocals were powerful
and emotive and she covered the good old days of the band. Not much of Celtic, traditional folk
and prog folk to be found since she left.

The only typical Mostly Autumn songs on here are the short opener and ''Viking Funerals, the one
that follows (at 4:59, acoustic guitar is identical to those found on Supertramp' ''Even In
The Quietest Moments''), and finally the epic one before the last, ''White Rainbow''. Then the
album is on a free falling with all these ballads that are packing the center of the album. There
are good but not great generic songs all around, but they tried to revive our interest with the
epic ''White Rainbow''. Twenty min long, it could have been divided into two songs, but it
contains typical band's elements. It also gives a nod and a wink (6:43) to ''Fading Colors'' from
Heart Full Of Sky. So, a very few songs sound like the Mostly Autumn I knew and loved.
