3 stars The one thing the Moodies had over many of their contemporaries of the time is the fact they could produce consistent albums. To Our Children's Children's Children is a tight and cohesive set of songs played to a concept that never veers too far of the mark, though this can be seen as a failing, and there are moments where the band indulge in over trite examples of tweeness in their songwriting. The originators, arguably, of the concept album, the Moody Blues also dabbled with a bit of the psychedelic experience. But rather than a full on emersion into the horrific world of LSD the boys in the Moodies merely had a taste, a taste that was sufficient and safe enough to allow them to explore the realms while still in control of their surroundings and creativity, to allow them some control and continue to have a pretty much mainstream appeal and write crap cringe making poetry. To Our Children's Children's Children is a decent album, enjoyable, with the concept which deals with the evolution of the human species right through to the understanding and controlling of fire until the ultimate use of its force and the propulsion of man toward the cosmos, exploring its potential yet still retaining a human condition and emotion. The mood of the album is at once exciting and melancholic, toward the end reaching out in metaphor and wonder. A good effort if still a little too safe and restrained.
