5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Classic, April 28, 2000
This review is from: Days of Future Passed (Audio CD)
I have heard this album described in so many ways; symphonic-rock, art-rock, pop-art, and so on... It's an exceptionally well-integrated musical enterprise between The London Festival Orchestra and rock/pop songs written and performed by the Moody Blues. The lyric and poetic quality of the writing allowed for the fortuitous blending of the two media. The absolutely impeccable presence of the orchestra conducted by Peter Knight, and musical arrangements composed by Redwave-Knight, make this effort a complete and stunning success. 'Days of Future Passed' is the beginning of much of the work to come for the Moodies with respect to their recording techniques, conceptualizations, etc. And indeed, performing live to the present day with a festival orchestra backing them continues to be a happy tradition with this legendary group. Any and every real music lover should know of or have this album. It's definitely a modern classic.
