AllMusic Review by

Peter Astor's previous band, the Loft, was a Creation Records labelmate of Felt and sounded like it, but with the Weather Prophets he smoothed the edges to create a more commercial, if somewhat generic, guitar pop style that lives on through groups such as Brideshead and Northern Portrait. Mayflower doesn't have an abundance of individual character, but the songs and performances are excellent, even though the album didn't achieve it's hoped-for mainstream success. "Almost Prayed," from the group's first single, and new songs such as "Can't Keep My Mind Off You" and "She Comes from the Rain" are full of hooky, jangly goodness.
