4 stars Here were are introduced to a new band called Moon Safari. At five songs, you'd think their first effort would be an EP, but you'd be wrong, for the songs are fairly lengthy. All in all a very solid a decent collection of songwriting with exceptions of two songs: A Sun of Your Own is probably the biggest sleeper on the album, getting a little catchier every time I listen to it. The second exception is the mammoth We Spin the World. Clocking in at 24:52, listening to this song is a lot like riiding the coolest roller coaster you've ever imagined. As a whole, this is a very fun album to listen to. The chord progressions and melodies are very original, and have a positive, upbeat feel. You can tell that each of the guys can play exceptionally well, but they choose not to over-do it in that sense. I think they're smart enough to realize that just because you can doesn't always mean you should show off your virtuosity. When you can write songs like these there's no need to prove how great of a player you are. The songs Doorway and Beyond the Door serve as perfect bookends to the album and tie it together very well, with the latter having one of the most gorgeous piano pieces I have ever heard for its introduction. Very promising young band. They have indeed 'opened up the door'.
