Even better than their first album by Neal and the boys - this is one of the Prog highlights of 2014 - perhaps THE HIGHLIGHT!

5.0 out of 5 stars and thus should be considered excellent value. I particularly like the review above from ..., 29 Dec. 2014
When reviewing this product, it must be remembered that it is very much an entry level MP3 player with no bangs and no whistles for your money. While on this subject, it is available for a fraction of this price from another major retailer, and thus should be considered excellent value. I particularly like the review above from the customer who discovered it can only be charged whilst the unit is switched on - this is counter-intuitive and caused me to take one back to the store as I thought it was faulty. THIS SHOULD BE MADE CLEAR IN THE INSTRUCTIONS!! The sound quality I consider good and I prefer it to a more expensive BUSH model I also possess as it is much less prone to fractional jumps when replaying the MP3 coding. One of the features basic 'lack of features' I also consider a type of strength. There is no menu system on the music replay so you have to 'tab' past each song in the order you saved to get to the one you want. THEREFORE, THIS UNIT IS ONLY SUITABLE FOR STORING A SMALL LIBRARY OF SONGS AT A TIME. The strength of this on the other hand is that it does not suffer from the menu system of more sophisticated units which tend to play back tracks in alphabetical order, which makes listening to most 'concept' albums, in which the running order is vital, impossible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moon Safari are one of my favourite 'Neo' Prog bands, 28 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blomljud (MP3 Download)
FIVE STARS INDEED! Moon Safari are one of my favourite 'Neo' Prog bands. They are beautiful song writers and this and 'Lover's End' are their two best albums by far. If nothing else, buy 'The Other Half of the Sky' alone which is unbelievably available to buy as a single purchase. At 30 minutes long it's a candidate for my favourite song of all time!!

£0.79 for 25 minutes of prog. After, The Other Half of the Sky, this is Moon Safari's second longest and second best song. It's an epic, BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Neo-Prog doesn't come any better!, 15 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Fanfare & Fantasy (Audio CD)
Comedy of Errors returned to action with an excellent album in 2011, 'Disobey'. This is the follow up and if you like your symphonic or neo-prog then you will certainly thoroughly enjoy this album that has a total of 66 minutes and not one of the 9 tracks is less than excellent!

Other reviews have centred around the vocal talents and performance of the lead singer. I would admit these are relatively this band's weaker point but his voice is acceptable. The obvious high points are the guitar and keyboard inter-playing which are both utterly superb throughout.

The respected 'Progarchives' rank this as one of their top 10 albums of its type with good cause. I loved this album on first listen and cannot award it less than 5 stars. Treat yourself for Xmas!
