5 stars A magical album, revolutionary for its time. From their below-average debut to their full-blown, world-renown career, Days Of Future Passed was their start and their best. The instrumental arrangement sounds a bit of a fairy-tale, flowing beautifully. This isn't the Lost Chord or the Threshold of a Dream Moody Blues that you know, this is something different entirely. It seems there's multiple styles included, Pop/Arabic/Romantic, an indescribable mixture. A perfect introduction to prog in general. Creative ideas are throughout, as the Orchestra isn't enough, here we have a clear narrator, great vocals, and soaked in mellotrons. To the prog roots, there's tempo changes to always keep the listener interested. Multiple parts of each song. The Moody Blues were always perfect with their vocal arrangements, like an A Capella group, layering them upon each other. As everyone knows, 2 fantastic hits came from this masterpiece, and even with all the radio play it got (and still gets!) still are classic songs. So many positive remarks to be said about this album; the album artwork, the titles (which describe the parts of the day, giving even more prog roots, a concept album in a way!), if you haven't already bought this piece of musical art, do yourself the honor and buy. You'll thoroughly enjoy every minute, sit back, and truly learn to relax...
