Moon Safari - A Doorway To Summer (2005)
The debut album from this Swedish band.
Moon Safari was a quintet with a lineup of hammond organ, moog, mellotron, drums, percussion, bass, guitars, harmonica and vocals.
This band has released four studio albums and has played some of the bigger prog rock festivals in the world. I am reviewing their four studio albums this spring and summer. You can find the other reviews somewhere else in this blog.
The band is a symphonic prog band. A Swedish symphonic prog band. That means some folk rock influences and a lot of The Flower Kings influences. They are in the same scene as The Flower Kings too so that is no surprise.
This album is much more an English and US symphonic prog influenced album than just a The Flower Kings follower and copycat.
This is still a Swedish symphonic prog album, though....
The music is very mellow, bright and light at the same time. It is not that melancholic. There is a lot of sun and warmth in these songs.
This is a good debut album which sadly is missing some great songs. It is an album and a band you should check out....
