Album Notes
Gifted Children Records is very proud to present 'Guarding The Golden Apple,' the debut album from The Moon Upstairs. Epic in its nature, with uncanny aggressiveness, infectious pop hooks, haunting harmonies, and assorted baroque psychedelic sounds, this varied collection of songs takes you back to the days of orchestration and the carefully crafted song work of such bands as THE LEFT BANKE, GEORGE HARRISON, NEIL YOUNG and PINK FLOYD. Equal parts beautiful and gritty, this classic psychedelic rock-pop masterpiece was brought to you by the multi-instrumentalist members of The Moon Upstairs. The core guitar, bass, drums, and piano, heightened with a variety of instruments including everything from the celeste, trombone, vibraphone, to a gutted piano… and that's the short list. In a day of false scenes and computer engineered tunes, The Moon Upstairs prove themselves to be a "a real band, not some sort of theme park dress-up act," as DREAM MAGAZINE's George Parsons put it. With their own distinctive style of apocalyptic, yet deeply personal sound, a sense of real love and respect for the word "song" can be found in each

Five Stars
This CD arrived in the mail and I wasn't sure what to expect. George Harrison, Pink Floyd? Can anyone today surely stand up next to such legends? My Sweet Lord, yes they can. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet The Moon Upstairs. Give them five years, and I bet these boys will finally get the attention and respect they deserve. I am surely excited to see what these guys do next. This album is flawless. Five stars, two thumbs up. By far, better than anything else going on today.

the problem is...
I like the song...I say this because alot of the songs are a bit too similar on the album. This is something I think can only be overcome by listening extensively to a piece of music...any piece of music. Overall they're good but dark side of the the!

A really good album
The song All Is All sets the tone perfectly for the rest of the album. Somber, maybe but not wallowing in gloom. More like cloudy but with the light in just the right places. Each song seems to have just enough weight to stand by itself. Every time I listen I like the album a little more.
