Caleb Bratcher If Moonlit Sailor's goal was to produce a positive post-rock album, then they definitely succeeded. Colors in Stereo is a solid performance that does away with the common (and maybe cliche) depressive themes and atmospheres. Inspiring all the way through. Favorite track: Weekday Escape.

Tristan With so much post-rock being moody and meandering, this is a refreshing change of pace; upbeat, accessible, energetic and with an admirable sense of optimism. Favorite track: Freeze Frame Vision.

To sum it up succinctly, Colors In Stereo is huge. It's like the thunderous boom of 1,000 armies marching in lockstep. Already receiving well-deserved critical acclaim for creating an entirely new dimension to the post-rock genre, these four Swedes have done it yet again with a truly unique album. Firmly entrenched in their quasi-pop / post-rock roots but adding space-rock elements to their already massive soundscapes, MOONLIT SAILOR has created a blueprint for the future of post-rock. Everything on Colors In Stereo is special: from the sounds you've never heard before, to the arpeggios that swallow you whole, to the powerful crescendos that devastate your senses. If you don't find it difficult to listen without being overwhelmed with emotion, you're not listening. "This album means a lot. When we wrote these songs, we knew that people were going to hear them and we didn't want to disappoint anyone, especially ourselves. It feels like we've taken big steps forward as composers and we hope people hear that in the songs. Everything about who we are we put into the music of Colors in Stereo. As for the title, it reminds us of the future...very positive and joyful. You can really feel the colors float through your inner mind and leave you purified. We wanted to make an positive post rock album" says says bass guitarist Markus Rundlöf. This is the new standard. It's that good.
