Product Description

Amazon.com

A regular fixture on the pop charts throughout the '70s, the Moody Blues roared into the '80s with this tremendously successful record. In fact, the album sounds only slightly different than its predecessors; the synthesizer textures are heavier (thanks to former Yes keyboardist Patrick Moraz), but the band's flair for catchy, melodic compositions is still very much in evidence. In retrospect, songs like "The Voice," "Talking Out of Turn" and "In My World," while solid, don't exactly measure up to such all-time Moodies classics like "Ride My See-Saw" or "Tuesday Afternoon." Still, this is probably the last truly consistent album the band ever made. --Dan Epstein

Customer Reviews

It is simply the best song on the album and one of their best ever.
P Magnum
Fortunately for the listener, this album does please the listener, and fortunately The Moody Blues can still make good music. ... Enjoy everyone!
Lonnie E. Holder
Moody Blues is classic, and a group I grew up listening to, and continue to listen to, they are unique in their style of music.

There are so many reviews of the albums of The Moody Blues all over the web, so please forgive me if I repeat what anyone had already said or for not being too original in my review. Here is my experience of this remastered edition of "Long Distance Voyager"...

First off, just like the famous early seven CD re-releases by The Moody Blues, whether they be the 1997 remasters or the 2006/2007 expanded editions, we are once again treated to another topnotch remastering job for the CD reissue of "Long Distance Voyager" ... What better candidate to have, when it comes to this task, than Moody Blue band member Justin Hayward?! :) Also, notice how the songs sort of segue together, unlike the original CD release from the 80's, where there would be two or three second gaps between the tracks, so once the last droplet of sound fades from a previous song, the next tune picks up right from that point ... This format takes Moody Blues listeners back to the early albums, when there were no silent gaps between the tracks. I had a feeling that this album would be remastered again, since it was previously remastered by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, when the limited edition gold CD was released in 1997 ... Usually, albums that are remastered on gold CD's get remastered again, and I'm glad that "Long Distance Voyager" received the recognition it deserved. :)

After "Seventh Sojourn," the latter Moody Blues albums feature synthesizers replacing the mellotrons, as any Moody fan can tell you of course, plus Justin Hayward sings in a more mellow manner than the way he sang on the late 60's/early 70's albums. John Lodge rocks a bit more, at a few points, compared to on the earlier albums (Beginning with "Sitting At The Wheel" from "The Present").

Format: Audio CD
The Moody Blues made seven extraordinary albums in six years in the late 60's and early 70's, then broke up for half a decade and reunited for the disappointing "Octave" in 1978. Three years later, they exploded onto the 80's pop scene with a fantastic new album that exceeded all expectations.
What made this album even more impressive was that the band succeeded so completely despite a crushing blow: the loss of keyboardist and singer/songwriter Mike Pinder, who left the band to raise a family. Pinder was an extremely important part of the band's sound, but the Moodies simply re-invented their sound with new keyboardist Patrick Moraz (from Yes.) It was a little flashier and a little less haunting, but their fantastic song-writing skills and collective talent made the album shine.
This album had two big hits: Justin Hayward's awesome rocker "The Voice" and the Hayward/Lodge composition "Gemini Dream," about the Moodies' return to the rock scene. But every song on here is an absolute gem, especially the gorgeous ballads "In My World" and "Nervous," Graeme Edge's riveting "22,000 Days" and Ray Thomas's closing trilogy, "Painted Smile/Reflective Smile/Veteran Cosmic Rocker", which is experimental rock at its most impressive and energetic.
This album is extremely uplifting, powerful, beautiful and inspirational, and it ROCKS. They wouldn't make another album this good until 1999's "Strange Times," and even that doesn't live up to the grandeur of "Long Distance Voyager." If there's one post-classic-period album that lives up to those first seven masterpieces, this is it!

Format: Audio CD
The Moodies made their mark in the 60s and extended that success into the early 70s. They spent some time apart in the mid-70s and then released "Octave", which was the last album on which Mike Pinder appeared. "Octave" was not the stellar production of the classic 7, and while it was a sort of "comeback", it wasn't the comeback the Moodies could have hoped for.
"Long Distance Voyager" showed the Moodies not only had it, they HAD it. This album went all the way to #1, matching the success of "Seventh Sojourn". Much of the Moodies 60s magic was in this album, and it is a fitting addition to the classic 7, though more in the vein of "Seventh Sojourn" than the earlier works.
This album had a flavour of the earlier otherwordly Moodies music, but was more generally a rocker flavored by the occasional ethereal concept.
Justin Hayward starts the album off with a decent song "The Voice", which continues some of the Moodies 60s concepts, with a dash of relationship thrown in as Justin seems to be talking to his significant other. The lyrics are generally okay with occasional weak points. The music is excellent, and Patrick Moraz' keyboards do not overwhelm the selection.
John Lodge then has a very good selection with "Talking Out of Turn", about someone saying something they shouldn't have to their loved one and regretting it. The lyrics and music are well matched here, and Patrick Moraz understated keyboards make this song feel like the Moodies of yore.
John Lodge and Justin Hayward kick in next with "Gemini Dream", a rocker that is just a good fun song, which believe it or not is a love song.
Justin Hayward's "In My World" follows. I must admit that this song is my favorite from this CD. I know, it's a maudlin love song, all mellow and pop/rockish.
