3 stars This cd is probably my introduction to The Moody Blues, but I don't think it qualifies as a Prog masterpiece. It is a one cd introduction to some of the hits of The Moody Blues (and other additions such as "Blue Guitar" and "Forever Autumn"). If you are new to the band, it is an excellent place to start, as it offers songs from most of their albums (it has no tracks from To Our Children's... which I think is a huge failing! However, like APP, their albums (mainly the core seven) are concept pieces, and by taking songs out of their context some of the magic is lost. My advice for beginners is to start with "Days of Future Passed" or "To Our Children's..." in order to get a taste of the Moodies' sound... you WILL want to pick up the rest of the Seven though! Hardcore fans should avoid this album as they will most likely find nothing new, unless of course they wish to get an idea of what the band sounded like later in its career.
