The Lost Chord
5 stars 10/10 Masterpiece

Now that I think of it, knocking On The Threshold for Dear Diary is just plain stupid. This album, as well as the previous, are complete masterpieces. This, though, with no flaws may be an 11/10. This entire album is just incredible and I love it to death. With the energetic opening of Higher and Higher to the absolutely brilliant and tear jerking Watching and Waiting, this album stuns me. I can't edit my reviews so that 9.5 for threshold must stay as I write this review on Tuesday, May 6th 2008. Once I can edit that, its getting that well deserved 10! But I must say I do enjoy this one sleightly more. I mean, I never thought I'd live... parts are absolutely unheard of. I can't handle them. Please!!! Wow, incredible stuff. Hayward is just a musical genius a musical genius at this time and it shocks me everytime I think of the path he took. The power they had died way too soon...well, I guess it is all the more special that it died young, the songs and albums stand in this spot as pure genius and short lived. My favorite part of this album are the last two tracks intertwining to complete and utter atmospheric bliss; I Never Though I'd Live... and Watching and Waiting. Stop the album now because I can't even handle it. Please listen to this with headphones or something and just embrace the brilliance of this musical ART form that The Moody Blues created. Mike Pinder thank you again for this mellotron work that is out of this world. I hope to give this album to my children's, children's children one day...
