Editorial Reviews

The Gettysburg Address is Moon Safari fourth release. This one is a Live recording from their epic performance at the Majestic Theatre in Gettysburg, PA, at Rosfest 2011. The 2-discs feature some of their most popular songs from all three studio albums. The quality of the recording is superb, and this is certainly the perfect introduction for new fans of the band and a must-buy for Moon Safari's devoted followers. Live is where their songs really come to life!

I have always liked Moon Safari, but living in the Mid-West my opportunity to ever see them live is pretty much tempered by having to buy a plane ticket to the East coast on a rare occasion when they actually play in the states. Therefore, YouTube aside, a live CD is welcome.For those unfamiliar with Moon Safari, they are a very symphonic prog band out of Sweden. In my mind, noted for their pristine and impeccable vocals with multi-part harmonies, not unlike The Beach Boys. They also seem to have a keen ability to write songs with catchy rhythms and hooks.

I have to say that I am often concerned with live albums as the recording quality can often be somewhat poor. NOT the case with "Gettysburg Address". The quality is excellent! The mix is crisp and clear. Care has been taken to not over enhance the bass or lose any instrument in the mix. Vocals, a key factor in their music, are right up front in the mix where they should be and mixed to perfection as to adequately capture their harmonies. If the mix was taken directly off the front of house sound console then Kudos to the engineer. The performance is balanced overall more like a studio recording. The stereo separation is pretty expansive. You get a nice concert hall sound but with no muddiness or "performance hall echo". This was more than likely a "one or two shot" attempt at capturing Moon Safari live. It is not like these guys were on a national tour. Nor is it like a lot of live albums where the band can pick and choose the best live songs from multiple concert dates.

Another problem with live recordings is that the band will often waste valuable time to go into some ridiculously long drum, or even worse; a bass solo.

I was introduced to Moon Safari on Cruise to the Edge 2014 when I heard them perform on the pool deck on the final night of the cruise. Although I had never heard of them before, I was stopped dead in my tracks as I walked by. These guys draw on multiple influences and infuse their music with energy, complexity, and some wonderful time signature shifts. I'm listening nonstop now. Highly recommended!

This is a live CD fromn this Swedish group recorded at the Majestic Theater in Gettysburg, back in 2011. My wife and I heard these young guys on the 2014 Cruise to the Edge (CttE) this past April. We were both knocked out!! The best way to describe Moon Safari is Progressive Rock meets the Beach Boys. The vocals are always good. But, these guys do some absolutely stunning multi part harmonies throughout all their songs. I saw them do a 6 part acapella piece live on CttE. I had the biggest grin on my face while they went through this acapella piece as they pulled it off flawlessly, and that is really tough to do!!

It really doesn't feel like prog most of the time as the vocals are, quite often, the focal point of many of the songs. But then, they launch into some absolutely stunning, driving instrumental passages that remind you where their roots are! They are very good musicians as well as great singers. Just a really tight band!!

Overall, it's hard to classify these guys,. I just know that my wife isn't a prog fan, for the most part, and she raves about this band. First time she ever wanted to get all of the releases from a band at one time!! So, that's what we did. think that is about as high praise as can be given!! I just really enjoy listening to all their stuff!!
