5 stars In frontal contrast to other opinions, IMHO this album is the peak of early period Moody blues inspiration. A very important component of their sound at this album was the melodies (simply awesome). The compositions had variety and almost all songs could be released as a single (strong examples were Horizons, Land of make-believe and Lost in a lost world). Unfortunately, time goes by, and this record gets truly old.. Moodies already knew by that time that their formula would not survive much longer..So, the band started some kind of voluntary retirement or freezing.. Only thawing six years later with the horrible Octave (forgive them).. And everybody knows the rest of the history, with Patrick Moraz efforts to raise more money during 80īs with lots of plain solid crap records with almost nothing worthy of listening... Exception to Strange Times (curiously they sack off Moraz on this one, but this is another story...). I love Moraz solo works but his work on Moody Blues is unbeliavably below his potential.
