“...fans of Live, Third Day, and Jars of Clay will adore Blue Moon Harem’s latest release, Finland. The album mixes prog rock with a slight country sway in vocals in a majority of the album tracks but the band also takes off in flights of more aggressive fronts that border hard rock. This is very radio friendly stuff but hardly fluff. I could listen to the album several times and never come to the conclusion that maybe BMH are trying top hard to keep it safe...Jonathan Bix has a wonderful voice that shows range and skill that makes every track a real pleasure to listen to. I can see other bands...who would attempt this particular sound and simply come off a bit phony. Bix’s vocals are sincere and delivered with a powerhouse performance that gives vindication to the album’s lyrics...For me there wasn’t one track on the album that I feel it could have gone without...your more then likely going to be in love with this album as much as I am. Definitely worth checking out. ”
“Blue Moon Harem,"Finland" (Roadside Records) Blue Moon Harem is a Boston based, pop/rock, acoustic/electric band that is as familiar and friendly to the ear as Hootie & the Blowfish or Darius Ruckers solo outings into country/pop. The band was formed by singer/songwriter Jonathan Bix and guitarist Demetri J over a decade ago. This 11 song cd titled “Finland” is the product of a lot of time and effort and it’s a disc I’m sure they’re proud of. It’s a very radio friendly album with mass appeal potential. “Stay”, “The Dotted Line” and “Shadows” are my favorite tracks but there’s really not a weak track on the whole album. Buy the cd, your girlfriend will love you for it. www.bluemoonharem.com Rating: Review by J.R. Oliver ”
“Remarkable from the start is the breadth and strength of Jonathon Bix's vocal presence, but also the arrangements and partner Demetri Joannou's versatile guitar work. Add to this the fine production and you have crisp, clear, and interesting collection of tunes”
“BLUE MOON HAREM "FINLAND" Exploding into the jangly support of “Stay,” this latest album from Blue Moon Harem makes the listener want to follow their musical directives for the better part of this better-than-most album. From the gritty hush of “Give and Take,” the acoustically exposing “Here I Am,” the light Pop of “I See Red” and the jam band-y groove of “Beautiful Danger” to the anthemic bouncer “Dotted Line” and the haunting howls of the shivery title track, the diversity of sounds on this 11-track album impresses and intrigues. Far from the Monty Python classic of the same name, this “Finland” is a serious set that travels far and wide on broad musical wings supported by the dynamic duo of Jonathan Bix and Demetri J. and their talented team of sessioners. Professionally produced by Jim Siegel at The Outpost in Stoughton, “Finalnd” is a well-devised and well-delivered package that takes listeners far away and yet is rooted in solid songwriting”

Superior musicanship and sound quality makes this cd a must have.the songs are extremely catchy yet never cheesy..I cant say enough about how cool this disk is.
