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.

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 - 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 - 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.

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.

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.

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?
