2 stars This was the first album I ever listened to from The Moody Blues, and this created a really bad first impression. The music is not prog at all, and isn't really that conceptual. I found the music really weird, especially the opening to the album. There are a few moments that I liked, but for the most part, I really don't like this record. You can't see much skill from the musicians from listening to this, and really has no instrumental passages or progression like most prog does. Now, I realize that this was 1969, but at this time there were albums like ABBEY ROAD and TOMMY which dominated this type of proto-prog. I'm not A Moody Blues fan, but really pass this by. The previous album is much better in comparison, and most prog fans will be dissapointed. Only buy if you're a fan because this isn't the place to start.
