Well, this has the feel of "...oh so nearly, but not quite..." That is NOT to say it is bad. Far from it. In addition to the already familiar influences of 70s prog like Yes and 80s prog like Marillion in the music, and The Beatles and Beach Boys in the vocals, one can also now trace hints of Queen, IQ and ELO in there too. All of which tick my boxes fully!
Kids set things up nicely for Time To Say Goodbye as the brilliant opener proper; stand-out track Mega Moon weaves in and out with a pomp that leaves you breathless; Barfly & Red White Blues carries on the momentum; Little Man is a bit throwaway, but good nevertheless; and CD ends on a high with Diamonds and Sugar Band (a self deprecating reference perhaps?)
Great album, so why only 4 stars? Moon Safari are progressive in the right sense. This album is clear progression from the previous ones, with its own clear identity. No returning over old ground. Good! But my sense is that some of the ideas, more than wonderful though they are, are not fully formed. I suspect that in time they will look back on this release and see it as an important part of the learning curve. I also suspect that after living with and touring this album for a year or so, they will have nailed EXACTLY what they want to do, and so Himlabacken Vol 2 should be awesome.
Buy it. Enjoy it. And then wait for what they do next, for if they progress as they have done so far, what comes next will blow your minds!
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'!
I am not a reviewer but I enjoyed the album immensely, especially track 3 Mega Moon, which in parts sounds as if it might have been influenced by Valensia (Dutch musician from the 90's) who I absolutely love. The whole album has great songs and easy listening and Moon Safari are playing in the UK from Thursday 12th-Sunday 15th September. And I am going to see them at Maltby in Yorkshire on the 14th.........

This is an absolutely outstanding album. Catchy, sometimes poppy melodies, but still Prog rock in a similar vein to It Bites. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Karl Jones
