Classic 'Poppy' Prog From Moon Safari,
This review is from: Himlabacken Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
I agree with the above review that this album has very catchy 'Pop' type songs on it but definitely in a Progressive Rock manner too.
Maybe this is a good thing.
Why don't Progressive Rock bands get any mainstream notice?. I think if you are classed as 'Progressive' then the writing is on the wall and mainsteram radio will ignore you - Maybe Moon Safari have decided to take a different stance by bringing out a wonderful, if short (46 minutes), album of wonderful 'Proggy Pop' songs that will entice in a bigger audience and get them noticed.
I for one adore this album and cannot stop playing it and, at a recent live show in Wolverhampton, saw these extremely talented young guys pull off all their songs in a live environment.
You could say that they are the first Prog 'Boy band'!
