The "First light" album doesn't easily fit into a music category box. The songs range from psych rock, to some fairly "laid back" folk-rock, and even a song with a country rock feel. Instruments played on the record include electric and acoustic guitars, electric bass and drums. Lead solos are all played on electric guitar; a "clean" sound on the acoustic based songs and guitar effects were used on the psych rock songs. Strong lead vocals and background harmony vocals, making this another excellent album as a result. Also one unreleased bonus track is added, all remastered from the original tapes. First time ever reissue as well.

The mellow vocals and acoustic guitar, background vocals and harmony are interwoven into a beautiful sound that is absolutely fabulous. It is sure to become one of the albums you want to include in your favorites of 2008. Amazing!!

Vocally Munson's gentle voice stays close to the Crosby, Stills and Nash harmony format at all times. The multi layered vocals and Munson's apt guitar parts are always mellow and often enlightening.
