The Lost Chord
5 stars 9.0/10 Incredible

Well this album is the ultimate bittersweet end, but doesn't end sweet really, just bitter. The entire album is great, until the final track which I highly dislike and see the real commerciality that the band is capable of engaging with. This album should have ended with When You're A Free Man, another great Pinder effort. But seriously, the album as a whole is still fantastic because the band is still together, despite their internal issues at the time they still managed to bang out mostly incredible tracks. New Horizons? Incredible. Isn't Life Strange? Despite its commerciality, it is an absolutely beautiful song that will bring you to tears if it hasn't already....on par with Question. The Land of Make Believe is my next favorite track and I would say I am not too crazy about everything else. I have to appreciate the fact that the band was in termoil and would disband soon after. The last track really does set the word: the Moody Blues will be crap very soon after this album. Well, they followed suite and became complete sell-out garbage. Despite this, the album still holds true with some incredible songs, thus keeping it an incredible addition.

The Lost Chord | 5/5 |
