5 stars Blomljud is probably one of the happiest albums ever made. The only way I could see someone not liking this album would be if they dont like being happy. The vocals set Moon Safari apart from other prog bands and they are really catchy. This album proves that an album doesnt have to be sad to be "emotional." The music is very clean symphonic progressive rock in the vein of bands like Yes with lots of keyboards, but I'm bad at describing music so I wont try other than to say that calling it "too poppy" is ridiculous. Anyone who says that must just hate being happy and associate happiness with popular music. Admittedly I more often emotionally connect with sad albums, but moon safari pulls off the positive emotional connection as well as any band I have heard. Normally I could pick out flaws even in an album that I love, but when I listen to Blomljud I'm too happy to notice any (other than maybe it runs too long). It's hard for me to recommend what kind of person will like this album because honestly I'm shocked that anyone could not connect with it, but if you are unsure then just listen to a sample online. I bought this album somewhat on blind faith in PA ratings and it is one of the best such purchases I have ever made.
