5 stars Wow! Here's an incredible album!

When Moon Safari released Blomljud they were relatively unknown on Progarchives. They had only released their debut album "A Doorway to Summer" which was averagely rated. Then came Blomljud. If you thought Moon Safari's first album was good you were probably blown away! Who would have expected such a masterpiece from a little known band?

So many progressive rock band's songs are more on the depressing side with a melancholic feel to them. Bands like Van Der Graph Generator and King Crimson. But Moon Safari's just the opposite. How couldn't there songs be happy with there beautiful harmonies sung about summertime and other frivolous things. just look at these lines. "Hope's as high, as the sun today" and "Every day I turn a bit wiser, every day climbing a little higher and every day I turn more into someone I admire". The songs on Blomljud will give you a great feeling of optimism and joy.

As for the musicians Petter Sandström does an awesome job on the guitars and Simon Åkesson excellently plays the keyboards. My favorite track of the album is "Methuselah's children". "Methuselah's Children" takes the amazing vocals and combines it with the well played instruments to create a spectacular, and beautiful piece.

So do what you can to get this album! I completely recommend it! Stunning vocal harmonies, brilliant musicianship with a variety of instruments, and amazingly well written songs. That's Blomljud for you!
