5.0 out of 5 stars Quadraphonic realized! April 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This gem from 1971 includes some of the Moody Blues best works. The stand-out cut for this hybrid SACD is the amazing, "Procession", in which the Moodies attempted to document the progression of music through the years. In stereo, it was always a revelation, but in surround sound the original quadraphonic mix is reproduced with exquisite clarity and definition. The song literally dances around the room. The entire album exudes new life through this new mix - however, the center speaker does not emit sound; only the four individual speakers (left and right front and left and right rear), plus the subwoofer. The unreleased bonus tracks are a welcome surprise, with the original version of, "The Story In Your Eyes" at an extra half minute added. It's more of a `free' mix towards the end sounding more like a tight `jam'. The Hayward/Thomas addition of "The Dreamer" is a pleasant song and this is the first time it has been available. Note that the bonus tracks are in stereo only; an unexplained mystery on an album mixed for multi-channels. Also note that the bonus song, "After you Came" listed on the booklet does not exist on the CD - a major faux-paus!

Please note that all Moody Blues Hybrid SACD's do not reproduce the front central channel - a result of the original quadraphonic tape mixing

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Progressive Moody Blues Release May 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD is likely the least well-known of the classic 7 Moody Blues releases. This CD is also likely the most progressive and experimental of the classic 7, which is saying a lot considering how well regarded "Days of Future Passed" is as one of the first, if not the first, rock concept albums, and one of the first progressive rock albums.
As with most of The Moody Blues first 7 albums, this CD also has a concept, albeit a somewhat loose concept. In this case, the concept is the evolution of man and his society, and whether and how that society might survive. As you can imagine, the tone of the album is relatively downbeat and somber.
The opening track is perhaps the most progressive Moodies track of any Moodies album, "Procession". This song is nothing less than the encapsulation of the evolution of man from man's primate ancestors to today. This song is one of those that have earned The Moody Blues comments such as heavy-handed, pretentious and overblown. Certainly the song attempts to summarize our history with three words: desolation, creation and communication. The music that goes with these three little words is nothing less than art, simple, building in complexity as the piece progresses until the last moments in the song when the song becomes crescendos of guitars, organs and drums, underscoring the complexity of modern life, leading into the next number.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enchanting, provocative recording, but not their best. September 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I feel strangely ashamed that I don't own this album, although I've heard it many times. It shall be my next acquisition, for I can still remember the wonderful mixture of enchantment and sweet-spirited perceptions contained in this excellent recording. I enjoy the whole album, though my favorites are the masterpiece "One More Time To Live", the sensitive "You Can Never Go Home Anymore", and the exotic, provocative Pinder gem "My Song". When I saw the Moodies for the first time, around l973, they did many songs from this album, including a great rendition of "One More Time To Live". I recommend this recording to those Moody Blues fans who feel that this very special band is at its best when creating magical music sprinkled with hope and innocence. I really must obtain a copy of it myself!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first of the "post-concept" album releases of the fabulous group that had first put the vital and exciting new sound of synthesized music on the map and integrated it with such mastery with the wall of dreamy electric sound they are so famous for. After exhausting the field of concept albums with four or five in a row, commencing with "In Search Of The Lost Chord" and ending with "Question Of balance a few breathless years later, the group finally retired in the early 1970s to regain their energy and momentum, and eventually released this new album, which features a wide range of terrific songs written by each of the band members, but really lacking any unifying theme other than the interesting word play on the musical scale with the album's title of Every Good Boy Deserves Favor i.e., first letter of each of the words in the title works out to EGBDF, or the musical scale. Nothing like historical musical trivia to spark up a review!
There is a lot of good listening here, and a lot of musical virtuosity, especially with Mike Pinder on the Moog synthesizer, but also with great electric guitar and bass work by Justin Hayward and John Lodge, respectively, and also with terrific work by Graham Edge on drums and Ray Thomas on a variety of wind instruments. Of course, "The Story In Your Eyes" was the smash single driving the album up the charts, and every song from The Procession" to the final "My Song are quite good. My own personal favorites are "The Story In Your Eyes and a terrific song that never got any air time at all, "You Can Never Go Home Again" written and sung by Justin Hayward. By the way, Justin and John (Lodge) later released a interesting album called "Blue Jays" that I would love to see come out on CD.
