Quote from: PHBefore "Himlabacken Vol. 2", this used to be my favourite album by Moon Safari. Still really good of course! But they even topped it with their latest!
Agreed, Vol. 2 is also my favourite 8).

Quote from: PHCan it be compared to anything else? I'm curious to hear your opinion on it.
Hard to say. I can't rembember that I thought while playing their music 'this reminds me of this band ... '. They have an own style, it's pretty happy music. But their albums are on Spotify ;).

Edit: here is the DPRP review: https://www.dprp.net/reviews/2023/006

I don't recognise what they mention as influences though, not so good at that :)

I am really enjoying Kristoffer Gildenlöw's latest album. It's tempting to compare it to Pain Of Salvation somehow. But honestly it's nothing like it. Sure, Kristoffer's voice is close to his brother's. But not as over the top, which can be considered a positive. I have listened to a few PoS albums (and I really like "In The Passing Light Of Day"), but I don't consider myself a diehard fan. Daniel's vocals are on the verge of irritation sometimes. Not with Kristoffer. Very pleasant singing voice. I have not heard any other solo albums by Kristoffer Gildenlöw yet, but if this new album sets the standard, the bar is set really high!
I hear quite some Pink Floyd influence. It also made me think of Ray Wilson sometimes and even bands like Anathema.

Now listening again, I think it's the fifth time now:
Kristoffer Gildenlöw - "Empty"

Excellent new album, with 40 minutes a bit short though ;).
