4 stars Here again is another example of The Moody Blues' diversity in compositional ability. This album really sounds alot like psychedelia and is quite trippy compared to other commercial releases. There are some weaker songs on this one compared to Days however. "Dr Livingstone I Presume" is kind of a silly song and while I like it, I do not think it would be a song that would be everyone's cup of tea. The small suite of "House of Four Doors/ Legend of a Mind/House of Four Doors pt.2" is classic Moody Blues! This is to me the highlight of the album. Legend of a Mind is about Timothy Leary, which explains why I believe this is definately a psychedelic album. The rest of the album is kind of like a trippy mental journey, especially "The Best Way to Travel". Another weak track on the album is the last one "Om" speaking of the same Om that is referenced in yoga. The supreme being that leads you to a higher consciousness. It is beautifully written as you would come to expect. Overall, if you liked "Days of Future Passed" and you like old Psychedelic rock, then you'll like this album. 4 Stars!
