1 stars In the sixties and early seventies, The Moody Blues were huge. Their music was unique, and quite haunting. Since their resurgence in 1978, their music has been slowly stripped down to the point where by the time of this release (from the album Keys Of The Kingdom, members of the classic lineup keyboardist/vocalist Mike Pinder and flautist/vocalist Ray Thomas were long gone, and the music was fodder for the bland adult contemporary radio stations that hired over the hill actresses like Teri Garr to advertise for them. The addition of Matrick Moraz on keyboards may have softened the decline, but did not stop the inevitable.
