Album Review

The Moody Blues' best album in several years benefitted mostly from the presence of the Top Ten single "Your Wildest Dreams," which managed to turn their status as dinosaurs from the '60s psychedelic era into a plus, with a great beat to boot and a very entertaining video featuring young British psychedelic rockers the Mood Six playing the young Moody Blues. The rest was fairly routine, alas, but the single was strong enough on its own terms to revive interest in the group one more time out.

Customer Reviews

Give "other side" a chance

Whatever you may have heard of this album, please spend .99$ and purchase "the other side of life". Grab some good headphones - open your mind - take a deep breath - and listen. Do youself a favor.

"Your Wildest Dreams" And Too Much Filler...

This album never captured my attention like previous ones did (Long Distance Voyager, Seventh Sojourn, Days Of Future Passed). "Your Wildest Dreams" is one of Justin Hayward's best songs, but the rest were inconsistent at best.

Very average...

This and "Keys to the Kingdom" are the Moodies' weakest albums. The fact that even a lackluster effort like this contains several catchy cuts ("Your Wildest Dreams", "The Other Side of Life", and, although not enjoying the same popular success, "The Spirit") is a testament to the band's talent and versatility. Unfortunately, the winners are sandwiched between tracks like "Running Out of Love" and the my least favorite Moodies song (ever), "Rock 'n Roll over You".

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 some of the best rival groups working in Birmingham, including...
