Prog Reviewer
3 stars This single has two songs taken from the Moodies' classic line-up's third album On the Threshold of a Dream (1969), which in my opinion might be the most uneven of the seven wonderful albums. That unevenness is represented here as well. 'Never Comes the Day' is in my opinion among the finest Justin Hayward songs: great sounds -- Pinder's mellotron is there, naturally --, beautiful melodies and a dynamic alteration between dreamy, mellow parts and the catchy chorus, with such gorgeous build-up in between. The only detail I'm not that fond of is the harmonica.

'So Deep Within You' is a mediocre Mike Pinder song. Of course it sounds pretty good per se, as the Moodies always did at that innovative era, but the composition is rather dull and monotonous.
