Has anyone heard this yet?
I'll be getting this for sure anyway (when more funds become available) but I wanted to hear your thoughts about this new release.

I just got the info from the guys, so I could add the album. I haven't actually heard it yet, but the samples sound very good.

Their debut is great, and I'd like to check it out sometime.  (Un)fortunately, there is a ton of other stuff I've been wanting so it might be a while.

The title translates "Flower Sounds". Just so you know. The music is probably as cheesy.

I just downloaded the track Dance Across the Ocean from their website.  That track fits perfectly with my tastes.  Is that song pretty representative of their sound?

Yeah. It's lighter stuff, but really well done. They also have a "trailer" for their new album on their MySpace page. http://www.myspace.com/wespintheworld

Just listening for the first time now, and it's quite good. However, if you are into dark, gloom and doom type of stuff, this probably isn't for you. It's really lighthearted, positive music.

I heard it on the Interstellar Overdrive radio show on Prog Rock Radio and liked it a lot. Those who liked the previous album will love this as well.

Just discovered this swedish band I I find them fantastic!!!ClapClapClapClapClap
Their sound is very close to The Flower Kings, with the difference they dont have guitar solo riffs but they can show some verygood vocals (sometimes Queen style)...
Prog music reminds me atmspheres of Yes .
So lets welcome this new band hoping they keep progging this way >>>>!StarStar

If I had to choose a song by this new album I would recommend Lady of the Woodlands, but I love also Yasgur's Farm, In the Countryside, Methuselah's Children.. there is no song that I don't like Smile

A wonderful release, deserves a bump for people who haven't heard this yet or don't know the band.

I just had to re-bump this.

Now I usually go for dark, depressing, somber and melancholic music, but am also prone to go for this upbeat, positive-thinking, cheerful and happy music, and in this case, sugar-coated and cheesy and saccharine enveloped music, but still wonderful and rich and soothing.

Been listening to it a lot lately (along with their first album) and it just makes me feel better along with enjoying well crafted melodies and musicianship.

Moon Safari always puts me in a good mood.When I'm down I will pop in A Doorway To Summer or Blomljud and it really lifts my spirits.
