5 stars The third album from Moon Safari offers up a familiar sound for those aquainted with the band, but is still a bit of a departure from their second effort "Blomljud".

Moon Safaris sound is one of catchy, almost pop-like melodies, finely crafted into a progressive framework. They make use of a wonderful blend of acoustic and electric guitars, piano and retro synthesizers, and on top of it all are masterfully arranged vocal harmonies, the quality of which sets Moon Safari apart from most other bands.

"Lover's End" is an even more vocally driven album than Blomljud. It's a bit less progressive, very melodic. The songs have a clear theme: the album tells the story of a man trying to get through a break up. The lyrics are kind of sad, but the overall sound of the album is happy, but sometimes a bit bittersweet.

Moon Safari sure knows how to craft fine music, and they are also very good performers. One of the best bands currently playing. This album is another triumph for them. Although I prefer their second album "Blomljud" over this one, I still consider it a 5-star album (Blomljud is one of my favourite albums ever).

I recommend this to all fans of the band. If you are new to the band, might want to check out Blomljud first.
