4 stars A very enjoyable and beautiful album from a bunch of very promising musicians. I discovered this band in the late 2006, and I saw them before listening to the CD I purchased at the venue. Now, I'm a proud and happy owner of an autographed copy of this album.:) The 10 tracks of Moonshinegarden contain very nice vintage keyboards, Moogs, Mellotrons, album is a warm and friendly experience, I would maybe say that this is a summertime album for many, but for me it is enjoyable during any season. All tracks are quite nice, Seven is also my favourite. This mini epic beyond the usual infliuences in latter day Symphonic Prog has a bit Gentle Giant flavour, too. At least, to my ears. For me a highlight of this band was the presence of three ladies (Kinga on vocals, Tímea on vocals, and Emese on flute). Unfortunately, none of them is a member of Yesterdays anymore, that's a sad thing because I like Kinga's voice a lot, and Emese's flute gives an extra flavour to the music. Actually only the very talented Zsolt Enyedi and the superb guitarist and band leader Ákos Bogáti-Bokor are still with band. This sounds not so kind, but Ákos is the main composer, and together with Zsolt they make the biggest impact on Yesterdays' sound. I am quite optimistic for the future of the band, I hope with their new line up they will conquer new musical heights. If you can't imagine your music without thunderous metal riffs and avantgarde quirkiness and experimentation, the Yesterdays probably won't please you very much. Especially not, if innovation and progressing are you favourite words when music is the subject of discussion. But if you like melodic, warm and positive sounding symphonic prog with some folky elements this is an excellent addition to your collection.
