4 stars In my opinion, this is the best of The Moody Blues' albums. While it has a few soft ballads (Voices In The Sky, Visions Of Paradise, like any Moodies album, this one never gets the saccharine sound that a lot of those ballads attain.

And even though some of it sounds a bit silly now, especially Dr. Livingstone, I Presume, it all stays interesing. And remember, this was 1968. Prog rock was just being formed. So this album, with mellotron, sitar, and spacy themes, was a trailblazer. And it was a grand step above "Days Of Future Past", and sounds much less dated today.

Evolver | 4/5 |
