Editorial Reviews

Following up the success of their album Blomljud, parched critics were once again commanded to the well of beauty and freedom in 2010 with the release of Lover's End, the third album from the vocal fashionistas. It was certainly the strongest, the most focused and the most determined work they'd mustered up in their relatively short existence, and the addition of Sebastian Åkesson to the line-up had the band shooting at the moon even in a live setting.The songs relatively short length and their slightly more poppy and direct sound brought in a lot of new fans.

Take The Beach Boys and fuse them with Yes.That's the only place I know where to begin...
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.

Moon Safari's third release continues in the same general vein as their first two -- sort of a blend between Ambrosia and Yes. The music on this release is less complex than on the earlier releases but still rich, well constructed, and hook-laden. The harmony-heavy vocals, though often lovely, could be aptly described as at times sappy, while the lyrics are decidedly more mundane and sometimes undermine the ethereal nature of the music and vocals. Nevertheless, this is still an outstanding release, albeit not as prized as either of the band's first two.

Moon Safari - Lover's End

"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 !

I can't believe I got something this good for $7. I feel like I owe the band an apology for not paying more for this album. Heaven knows I've paid more and gotten much, much less. For the reviewers that insist this is not prog, I'll conceded that it's less progressive than Blomljud. And Moon Safari at their "proggiest" are not edgy, in-your-face prog. I saw one review that said Lover's End was more power pop than prog. Maybe that's not a bad description. There are certainly a lot of progressive elements in the music, but overall, it's very melodic and accessible.

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.

Who cares? This album is fantastic. I haven't gone a day in weeks without listening to it. I just bought 4 more copies to give to friends. I haven't been this interested in a band since Steve Hackett still sat in his chair on stage and Gabriel still wore wings on his head. The entire Moon Safari catalog is great, but at the moment this album is my favorite.
