The Lost Chord
5 stars 9.5/10 Incredible

Ahhhh man....this is just an incredible album. I only give this a 9.5 because I never really could dig Pinder on Dear Diary...the track just isn't all that good, and I rarely listen to it. As for the rest of this album, it is almost all complete brillaince if not just simple mortal genius. Second only to In Search of the Lost Chord, this album brings forth an even more spacy and nostalgic feel, with songs that just sweep the listener away to another dimension. The Moody Blues specialty at this time was this sort of medievil beauty, with songs like Are You Sitting Comfortably and the entire fiendish Heave Your Heard and Voyage areas, the album is just breathe taking. I find this album would be the most intriguing to prog listeners, it is probably the most progressive effort they ever had. This album cannot be missed by those in love with melody and beauty, intense emotional atmospheres and passion. Mike Pinder is still here and will be for a while longer, and what bliss that is to know...this is the peak of that period, a completely amazing album. Best songs are the Have You Heard and Voyage ending, Send Me No Wine, Never Comes The Day and Are You Sitting Comfortably. Memories build on this music so listen in times of bliss, beautiful.

The Lost Chord | 5/5 |
