3 stars It happened to Genesis in 1978, and it happened to the Moodies here. The prog rock sound is replaced by a pop sound and the band becomes commercial. It doesn't make the music bad, just lesser. Ray Thomas did little to nothing here, which may disappoint fans of the veteran cosmic rocker. Also, there is less seen of poet Graeme Edge, which further drifts from premises of the Moody Blues I always enjoyed of the Core 7 (DOFP through Seventh Sojourn): 1.Everyone was a lead singer; Moraz broke that. 2.There were upbeat and trippy songs per album ("The Balance" still gives me shivers) If you want a newer Moody Blues album, you might rather want "Strange Times" or their Christmas album. But who am I to tell you what you like? I don't know you. I'm just a teenage prog rocker.
