5 stars "Blue Jays" sounds even better now than when it was released in LP form in the 70's. This really is a Moody Blues album, and a great one at that, without any twaddle. The 2005 Moody Blues' "Gold" compilation justifiably includes two Blue Jays songs on its two CD's.

Peter Knight's orchestration and Hayward's guitar soar here. The songs do not usually follow the verse-chorus-verse-bridge-chorus format so common in rock songs, and the variations are delightful. Following Moodies' tradition, often orchestration forms the bridge.

Nobody does nostalgic longing better than Hayward and Lodge.
