    One of the best English bands from the old days, in my estimation.

    Esp. their earlier stuff - up to 'Seventh Sojourn'.

    Among my favorite tracks are 'Gypsy' 'Ride my see-saw' 'nights in white satin'
    'land of make believe' 'legend of a mind(timothy leary'e dead).

    Anyone else like them? Any fave. albums or songs?
     
  2. Love, love, love the Moody Blues. I like all their albums esp. the earlier stuff as well. Also love "Legend of a Mind", "Nights in White Satin". I really like "Question" too. Shit, all of it. Days of Future Passed is a fun album as well.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    To Our Children's Children's Children is my favorite Moody Blues album, simply for the intensely haunting, melancholy nature of this material. It's such a rich atmosphere that is built primarily around Mike Pinder's emotional mellotron, and can be heard best of tracks like 'Out and In,' 'Candle of Life,' and 'Watching and Waiting.'

    I also like Days of Future Passed; their classic sophomore effort.

    Other than that, I am not a big fan of this group. They pretty much stuck to one sound and one formula throughout their entire career, and I find much of their work to be too refined and "light" for my tastes. But in terms of the richness of their music and its superbly melodic, harmonic nature, few bands can compare.

    The Moody Blues are amazing man, I love "On the Threshold of a Dream," and "Nights in White Satin" has been one of my absolute favourite songs for years.

    I used to like them.I have several of vinyls. I haven't played them in years as these days they sound a bit too much like Nat King Cole who I would rather listen to.

    o_O Well, each to his or her own...

    I loved listening to The Moody Blues for literally ages.. 2 weeks ago I heard a tape of them from 1977 doing a "King Biscuit Flower Hour" radio concert.
    The version of "Questions" from that show was just astounding... it was played much harder and faster than on the studio album and.

    An amazing band.
