4 stars -"The rain is on the roof......."- Even more than their last album, this is my favorite Moody Blues release. I much prefer the Moodys without too much orchestra in the background. While this is dated in many ways, it is still a great album to listen to from time to time and relive some 70's memories. Highlights are "Ride my See-Saw", "Dr Livingstone I Presume?", "House of 4 Doors", "The Best Way to Travel", and the wonderful concluding number with it's spoken intro, "Oom", which is my favorite Moody Blues track. So trippy, hippie, cheesy, and dated but still totally cool! Get out you Indian cymbols and sitar! Nothing less than a 4 star effort. Not perfect but the best they did.
