Justin Hayward - Live In Concert At The Capitol Theatre DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This new concert film is extremely good. There is only one bonus feature - a music video for the song "The Wind of Heaven."

Review by Gary Hill
For my money a lot of the albums where rock bands record with symphony orchestras are suspect.

The Moody Blues - A Question of Balance
Review by Steve Alspach
The fourth album released by the Moody Blues between 1967 and 1972, A Question of Balance was the first album by the Moodies that didn't have any sort of coherent theme to it. It was still an influential album.

Review by G. W. Hill

This twelve inch single from the Moody Blues is out of print, but you can certainly find it online and most likely at a decent price.

The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed
Review by Steve Alspach
Few bands make a quantum leap in musical style the way Moody Blues did between 1965 and 1967.

The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed Live
Review by Gary Hill

In 2017 The Moody Blues album Days of Future Passed turned 50 years old. It's hard in retrospect to understand just how much of a game-changer that album was, merging symphonic music and rock into a concept album.

The Moody Blues - December
Review by Gary Hill
With a band as devoted to pretty ballads and symphonic stylings, it was just a matter of time before they did a holiday disc.

The Moody Blues - Every Good Boy Deserves Favour
Review by Gary Hill

This Moody Blues album is somewhat typical of the group, but in many ways seems less effective than some of the other releases in the group’s catalog.

The Moody Blues - Hall of Fame - Live At The Royal Albert Hall 2000
Review by Gary Hill

I’ve only seen the Moody Blues live once and it was a disappointing show. They pushed the sound system past the point of good music and into the distortion zone.

The Moody Blues - In Search of the Lost Chord
Review by Gary Hill

The third album from The Moody Blues, this came out in 1968. As such, it's more proto-prog than actual prog, since that wasn't really a thing yet.

Jeff Wayne - Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds
Review by Gary Hill
This album is a rock opera based on the classic H. G. Wells book War of the Worlds. It is a very theatric work, somewhat more musical theater than rock album.

Jeff Wayne - Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds 2005 Edition
Review by Gary Hill
In the world of rock opera's Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds stands far above the majority of the competition. A release that has shown lasting appeal, maintaining a following for all these years, has just been re-issued in this hybrid Super Audio CD.

Review by Gary Hill
It’s always a great feeling when a plan comes together. By that criterion, Jeff Wayne must be a very happy man.

The Moody Blues - Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970
Review by Gary Hill
The Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 saw the Moody Blues play in front of half a million people. I’m sure many people then (as today, even) thought of the Moody Blues as a strictly studio band.

The Moody Blues - Long Distance Voyager
Review by Gary Hill

In the 1980’s the Moody Blues took on a more electronic sound. I know that sound didn’t sit well with a lot of fans. For them this was probably the last great Moody Blues album – at least for a while.

The Moody Blues - Octave (original vinyl)
Review by Gary Hill

I recently saw a list of most disappointing albums, and this was on it. I decided to do this retro review as sort of my rebuttal to that.

Various Artists - Riding the Rock Machine - British Seventies Classic Rock
Review by Gary Hill
I have heard arguments that say that the 1970s were the decade with the best music. Like any decade, they had a lot of garbage music

The Moody Blues - Seventh Sojourn
Review by Gary Hill

This album from the Moody Blues probably falls in the middle of the road of their older stuff. There are a few exceptional tracks.

Alan Simon - Songwriter
Review by Gary Hill

I don't think I had heard of Alan Simon until recently. This double disc set captures a lot of his previous work.

The Moody Blues - To Our Children's Children's Children
Review by Steve Alspach
The middle of the seven albums released by the Moodies between 1967 and 1972, "…Children…" has space exploration as its theme. No small wonder - it was 1969, and space travel was quite the thing back then.

The Moody Blues - Voices in the Sky: The Best of the Moody Blues
Review by Gary Hill
I wouldn’t want to be the one to have to put together a “Best Of” package for an act like The Moody Blues. I mean, these guys have had so much great music how do you pick?
