Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this classic 1983 album from the British Pop/Rock band includes two bonus tracks (the single edit of 'Blue World' and an extended mix 'Sitting At The Wheel') and a 16 page booklet. The Moody Blues may not be mentioned in the same breath as The Kinks, The Who, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, but they are more than deserving of being compared to those influential bands. From their beginnings in the '60s to the millennium, The Moody Blues have continued to create exceptional music and expand their devoted fanbase with each new generation. Universal. 2008.

A "Present" Surprise
Carl V. Crespo | ANAHEIM, CA USA | 01/23/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The original audio CD was fairly good but this remaster has better sound (Justin Hayward, good remastering job). I've alway enjoyed this album and this release re-ignited my interest. It is another one of those Moody Blues albums I thought did not get the attention it deserved. Its only drawback became apparent when I then compared it to the LP (hence 4 stars instead of five). The remaster has clarity and strength but the LP brings out the Moody Blue's vocals with a much warmer sound. If you don't have the LP this remaster is the next best thing. It is also a good candidate for a SACD.
As an engineer I know digital media is taking over, better, faster, cheaper. TV yes, photos maybe, music not yet. LP's are still great, the audio cassette was a mistake from begining to end, CD's are good to varying degrees and getting better, MP3's are fool's gold. History repeats itself. Cassettes were portable with limited audio with a lot of tape noise and today's MP3 are audio shortcuts leaving out most of the audio information for a smaller file size."
