Prog Reviewer
3 stars Most fans seem to think that "The Voice" and "Gemini Dream" are the best songs on this album. In my opinion, "In My World" is not only the best track on the album, but perhaps the best track on any Moody Blues album released after "Seventh Sojourn" ("Blue World" is its equal, certainly, thought its arrangement is not a perfect fit). I can't think of another song they've done that is so beautifully understated in its arrangement. In addition, it's the only song of theirs that has an instrumental "ending" that doubles the song's length, and does so wonderfully. Note the almost Country & Western feel of Hayward's guitar solo at one point; yet another attribute that makes this song unique in their discography. So, how's the rest of the album? Well, I mentioned the other really good songs already, and there's a couple of others that aren't bad. The lyrical prowess of old was somewhat diminished by this time, though the music was still there. Light-years ahead of their current efforts, of course.
