The concept here is Love.The discovery,the loss.the anguish.Rarely have I heard anything that combines such upbeat music with melancholy.
Yes,Lover's End can border on corny and cheesy.On the other hand,there is a stunning beauty here if you will slowly let this music have it's way with you.....Just like any relationship.
This is not Jazz-Rock Fusion or Progressive Death Metal...Just an album of great melodies,fine musicianship,and gorgeous harmonies.One of the best of 2010.
"Lover's End" is the third album released by Sweden's symphonically harmonic progsters who call themselves the "Moon Safari". 2008's double CD "Blomljud" was one of those albums that I just could not put down and was one of my favoutire albums of that year and I still play often!
In 2010 the followed up with this album "Lover's End" which maintains their excursion into the soft melodic side of prog rock with standout melodies and harmonies throughout. Like it predecessor this album kicks! To steal a saying from my kids "it's sick" ........i guess that means its awesome!
Musically this album is slightly less overtly progressive than "Blomljud" yet it is just as brilliant ...just slightly more pop oriented !
My wife and I love the song "The World's Greatest Dreamers" and I cant believe this song didnt make the charts....oh god dont get me started!
The other songs is the far too short "Southern Belle" which is a powerful harmonic song that will make you think about things !
The fact is, just about every song sticks in my head. I can't remember the last time that happened. The hooks, the harmonies, the melody lines of each instrument combine to make each song beautiful in its own right. Moon Safari is vocally one of the more interesting bands you'll ever hear. The singing is head and shoulders above most of what's out there. The arrangements are fantastic and flawlessly executed. Lyrically, a few reviewers have called the songs cheesy, and in places maybe they are. But even in those cases, they aren't anything so noticeable that you wouldn't enjoy the song. The production quality is high, everything crystal clear and well-balanced.
If Lover's End is not "true" prog, oh well. It's still music that totally grabs me. It hasn't been out of my playlist since I got it. I'm not one for giving a CD a 5 star review. Most of the CDs I really like I would consider 4 star. This is one of those rare times when I have to say 5 starts is merited.
