Prog Reviewer
2 stars Nice for a Moody Blues fan to hear live versions of their favourite cuts from the first few ''classic'' Moody Blues albums. While the performances are nice, I get the feeling that the band's talents are better showcased on a studio album. The songs just don't seem to have as much life in them, and I can't feel any excitement from the band themselves when they aren't playing. Still, the live version of ''The Voyage'' is interesting to hear stripped down.

Now, the +5 means that there are five songs that were recorded in the studio but never made it onto a proper Moody Blues album. However, all 5 are terribly bland with not much to them. Heck, the vocals are rather weak and out of time on ''Please Think About It''.

This should only be of interest to hardcore Moody Blues fans.

Sinusoid | 2/5 |
