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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great live recording! November 9, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive! May 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!
