The Lost Chord
5 stars 10/10 Masterpiece

A little more subtle than the rest, but nonethless a masterpiece. Please, can no one understand what this is? This isn't just another attempt by the band but a continuation of their then current style, which is enough to confirm a benefit beyond comprehension from each record! Once Pinder would leave the band mentally this is when they decline. This album is full of beautiful songs and again the continuation of Mike Pinder's brilliant spiritual and inspirational ideals. With his grande finale My Song he really strikes a powerful note in the Moody Blues repotioire. Not to mention, the previous track is almost my all-time favorite by the band, You Can Never Go Home. The arrangements of the songs is a little lackluster, but that is not to say each song by itself is not incredible. The band is just working together so well, and this would really be there final album working so well together. Seventh Sojourn would mark the end of it all! For progressive fiends, this album has some very interesting elements. Procession alone is full of chaotic little moments and an arrangemenst to sooth any fan of strange, intriguing prog. But AGAIN this is The Moody Blues, combining beauty with complexity. I absolutely love Emily's Song, such a beautiful song, showing a milder side beginning for the band, but again also contributing to the album containing Procession, showing that they are still able to mix around with different ideas. One More Time To Live is just breathe this song to death. A very bittersweet album this is, in that it doesn;t contain much anything superficial. The real downward slope is beginning, but this adds to the album because sadness is a major part of The Moody Blues, and enjoying their sound is all about engaging in their emotions! Check this album out after you have understood the sound from Days of future to Question. Amazing.

The Lost Chord | 5/5 |
