Customer Reviews

A great album for Moody Blues fans.
A. Hiniker
I have listened to this album in every format (vinyl, cassette, 8-track, 80's CD/1997 Remaster/SACD) and I have to say that I am impressed with this latest mix.
Christopher A. Morgan
Looking back, and listening to many great albums over the past 35 years or so, there are certain ones that never get old, never get dull, or become dated.

Format: Audio CD
"On the Threshold of a Dream" followed "In Search of the Lost Chord". This album has a darker feel to it than "The Lost Chord," which periodically became lightly whimsical ("Dr. Livingstone, I Presume" as an example) and was generally upbeat.
"Threshold" begins with a somewhat paranoid interchange between several characters that in a few short sentences explores individuality in modern computerized society. While Graeme Edge is generally upbeat in that he says that as individuals we can "...perceive the web they weave and keep on thinking free," the sinister tone of "Big Brother's got your number" starts the album off darkly. From this beginning, the other songs in the album are now interpreted by this initial tone. Furthermore, the closeout by the last three Mike Pinder selections, "Have You Heard" parts 1 and 2 and "The Voyage," end the album in a melancholy fashion that also reflects on the other tracks, of which many are melancholy themselves.
In spite of the dark mood of the album, it is still great for those times when you are a bit moody yourself. For some reason I enjoy listening to this album when it's raining outside, or when I'm feeling down. You would think that the album would drive me further into the depths of depression, but it does not. Instead, it tends to make me think about why I am depressed and ultimately overcoming those issues cheers me up. Okay, it's a little weird, but it works for me.
How is the album? Very good. This album was again experimental and further associated the Moodies name with progressive rock.

88 of 93 people found the following review helpful By Dennis Hawley VINE VOICE on July 16, 2006
Format: Audio CD
I hadn't really planned on writing a review of this CD until I read the recent (July 14, 2006) review by 'Micaloneus'. His review raised some interesting points, and was so at variance with other reviews that I was intriqued, so decided to offer my own take.

First off, I do not own the previous remastered versions of this or any other Moody Blues 'classic seven', so I cannot refute his claim. I am, however, able to respond to his primary criticisms.

The reviewer states that the original 'dynamics' have been compromised by excessive compression, resulting in 'ear fatigue', and that earlier releases sound more like the vinyl LPs, preserving the dynamics originally engineered. He also claims that the MFSL gold discs sound 'better' (at least on a Deep Purple record, so I presume he means on other titles as well). I happen to own a MFSL gold disc of 'Threshold', so I sat down and played it from start to finish, followed by this hybrid SACD version (played on a high-quality stereo, as I do not own an SACD player). I came away with a totally different perception. While the gold disc did sound a bit more like the vinyl record (I once owned over 2,000 LPs, including 'Threshold'), it does, then, have a bit of a 'warmer' sound (for want of a better word). Is it 'better'? Not in my book. In a direct A/B comparison, the hybrid SACD version sounded fuller, with much more separation and clarity. For example, on the fade-out on 'To Share Our Love', the refrain is barely audible on the gold disc, but is clear as glass on the hybrid version. I was able to pick up instrumentation on the hybrid that was buried in the gold disc. For me, the effect of listening to the hybrid was much more like being in the recording studio vs. listening to a record of that recording. No comparison.

Format: Audio CD
The Moody Blues have re-released their albums as Remastered and a few in DTS, but finally they are now available in Hybrid SACD. This version is a keeper including some very rare and enormously well mastered and remixed songs.

These include:
In The Beginning
Lovely To See You
Dear Diary
Send Me No Wine
To Share Our Love
So Deep Within You
Never Comes The Day
Lazy Day
Are You Sitting Comfortably
Dream
Have You Heard - Part One
Voyage
Have You Heard - Part Two

Extra Songs:
In The Beginning (Full Version) (Bonus Track)
So Deep Within You (Full Version) (Bonus Track)
Dear Diary (Alternate Mix)
Have You Heard (Original Take)
Voyage (Original Take)
Lovely To See You (BBC Top Gear Session 2/18/69)
Send Me No Wine (BBC Top Gear Session 2/18/69)
So Deep Within You (BBC Tony Brandon Session Mono 4/2/69)
Are You Sitting Comfortably (Mono Version)

No previous Moody Blues album has contained such rare BBC sessions, outtakes and alternate mixes. One needs no other recording of this classic album. The box is half plastic and half cardboard which might not last as long as a regular CD package. However, the liner package notes are exhaustive with many new pictures and a complete history.

(Note: This is an SACD mix made from the original quadraphonic tapes. The extra songs are the original remastered quadraphonic tapes - not SACD. This means the extra songs revert back to stereo on your SACD player).
