5 stars Recommended first step in the exploration of great prog music masterpieces.

I would like to help expose music lovers to the joys of great progressive rock music. For prog-novice wanting to explore the genre starting with an appreciation of great classical, rock and/or pop music, there is no better place to start collectively than with the 7 original prog-classics of the Moody Blues from the late sixties to the early seventies, from "Days of Future Passed" through "Seventh Sojourn". Personally, I'd have to say this collective discography along with that of the Beatles from the same era should form the core of any great prog/pop/rock/ collection. From here, you can go in many different directions. However,this is the most accessible place for most to start, in my opinion.

My time to review these albums is limited, and I happened to be listening to "OTTOAD" and became motivated to relate this message. Buy the re-mastered CD copy of this album, crank up the volume on any good quality audio system, and be both simultaneously blown-away, mesmerized, and soulfully transformed by the beauty and artistry of this release. THen do the same with the other six original Moody Blues masterpece albums mentioned. If you are a very happy camper at this point, explore some the masterpieces by other prog artists like Genesis, Camel, Yes, and others and you will be well on your way through a wonderful musical journey!

Peace and lovebe with you!
