4 stars TYFTF is the second studio album by American Progressive rock band Moon Letters. The main characters seem to be Michael Trew on vocals, flute, guitars; Dave Webb on guitars; John Allday on keyboards and synthesizers; Mike Murphy on bass and vocals; and Kelly Mynes on drums and percussion.

Moon Letters have a unique sound, a blend of Rush, Echolyn and Discipline, but with the pop sensibilities on steroids! All the influences are there, the dark ones, the melodic ones, the complex and the less complex? and some virtuosity too. A really solid record that will entertain from the get-go all the way through the last notes, a journey that, without necessarily been conceptual, it does sound like a whole when listened as a whole. I also hear some Hackett-like guitar arrangements and a Bruford jazzy groove, and even some Gentle Giant corky complexity. A mix of space rock and symphonic prog here and there, all very well crafted and executed? not an everyday listen by all means, but a wonderful curiosity for all Prog lovers, specially those who cherish more modern banda such as Magic Pie, The Dear Hunter, Pattern Seeking Animals, and so on. My personal highlights are:

- The Hrossa

- Isolation and Foreboding

- Fate of the Alacorn

- Yesterday is Gone
