Album Review

This single-CD compilation doesn't do too much more than scratch the surface of the band's sound at its most popular points, but it does do one thing that no prior Moody Blues compilation ever did — it includes "Go Now," which, as the notes point out, is still the group's top-charting single in England. What it doesn't do is get "Go Now" in really good sound (no one seems to have a proper master source) or include their even better follow-up single, "From the Bottom of My Heart." Still, this body of work is pleasing and, thanks to its extension back to the original lineup, even a little bit informative, and it was the first Moody Blues compilation to be mastered in 20-bit audio. The dominant personality is Justin Hayward, who has provided the band with most of its hits, followed somewhat distantly by John Lodge, whose songs began to shine as the '70s dawned — a pair of Hayward/Lodge songs and one solo Hayward release fill out the 17 tracks, which showcase the soulful, the mystical, and the psychedelic aspects of their music in equal parts. It's a good intro to their history, and anyone who wants more can jump to the Time Traveller box.

Nice Though Incomplete

Good album this is, and nice enough collection of The Moody Blues greatest hits to make it a worthwhile buy to anyone. Be warned this is still only a "partial" album that's here on iTunes, and it's missing some good songs that the cd itself has. With this in mind it's such a pity that "Forever Autumn" which is a great song is on the cd, but not here, cause I surely would have bought it. Bad decision making as always iTunes but what else havewe come to expect? Oh well.

OK But there is better

The 2-disc CD set "This Is The Moody Blues" is a more complete collection with 26 cuts.

i got the moody blues

this album is a definet buy get it and enjoy time after time

Although they're best known today for their lush, lyrically and musically profound (some would say bombastic) psychedelic-era albums, the Moody Blues started out as one of the better R&B-based combos of the British Invasion. The group's history began in Birmingham, England with Ray Thomas (harmonica, vocals) and Mike Pinder (keyboards, vocals), who had played together in El Riot & the Rebels and the Krew Cats. They began recruiting members of...
