4 stars "Seventh Sojourn", the last of the classical MOODY BLUES's albums is a good farewell, since after it for new works of the band fans had to wait for 6 years. Musical score is fine, very balanced with pleasantly audible songs, although none of them really memorable.

'Lost in a lost world' is an honest opening, with a certain space/psychedelic tunes that remind Pink Floyd; 'New horizons' is a single ballad, moodie style, followed by the folky 'For my lady'. Then comes 'Isn't life strange' with its symphonic beginning promising more than it really performs, but in the end it's an OK song; 'You and me' and 'The land of make-believe' are the weakest songs in the album, although fairly listenable. The soft rock 'When you're a free man' prepares for the ending track, 'I'm just a singer', a real rock piece, with a nice and well placed orchestration that makes this track the best in this album.

A fine and agreeable work which deserves to be sojourned at any prog collection. Total: 4.
