Got all 4 of the new Moody Blues reissues <all but DOFP> yesterday. I grew up with these lp's when they were released. I was happy with the last remasters, but these are really special. I don't have surround yet, so I am listening to the stereo layer. Other than being mastered loud, like everything these days, I have to say I love them! The packaging is exquisite - you can tell these are UK releases: laminated covers and excellent design, packaging and printing. Lots of very good photos I've never seen in the booklets, and great, informative liner notes. I have an "average" system at best, and have been listening on headphones as I do with 95% of music when at home. These may be the cds that finally get me moving towards upgrading my system to enjoy the surround experience.

My two bits: get them now! Glad I did - heck, I might even get DOFP to complete the set now that I know how nice they are. Excellent additions to my classic rock library.

I've had this album on vinyl for decades and decided to upgrade to this CD - what a lovely surprise! Not only has it got what it says on the tin ("In Search" is such a fab album, there are no bum tracks but many outstanding ones, eg. "The Actor", "Ride my See Saw", "Visions of Paradise", etc, etc), but it also has some great extras, especially "A Simple Game" in 2 versions, one sung by Justin and the other by Mike - I think I like Mike's version best as Justin's brilliant voice is too low, I think, for this particular song (I'm sure many people will disagree with me!!). Another good extra track is Justin's poignant tribute to a fallen soldier, "What am I doing here?" This is a must-have for anyone's Moody Blues collection.

I was extremely excited when the re-release of the first five Moody Blues albums was announced a few months ago. The press releases made much ado about bonus tracks and surround sound mixes in dual-layer SACD format. I immediately pre-ordered them all. Well, I just received them in the mail and was a little disappointed to discover that, unlike the other four albums, ISOTLC did not include a surround mix. The SACD layer is 2-channel stereo only. The sound quality is still great and I love getting bonus tracks- but my real interest is hearing the Moody Blues in full surround (albeit "quadraphonic"). At this point I'm wondering if this was a mastering error, of if this one album was just mysteriously skipped for quad/surround treatment by the Moodys.

Of all the magical albums produced by the Moody Blues between 1967 and 1972, the best came in 1968. It had an Eastern theme, with plenty of sitar from Hayward and extremely bizzare vocal harmonies. Kicking off with Graeme Edge's maniacal laugh, the album includes some of the best Moodies songs ever written: Thomas's "Legend of a Mind", Hayward's "Visions of Paradise" and "The Actor", Pinder's "Om", the whole album blends together in a truly mind-blowing fashion. It's simultaneously relaxing and stirring, depending on your mood! I cannot describe how good this album is, but you'll know, as you hear the pulse beat in the background after the sitar solo in "Om" (beating Pink Floyd's pulse by a year) that you've heard something truly special. Forget any other five-star ratings: Britney Spears gets them, I know, I've looked. But this is one that MEANS something. Because this was recorded fourteen years before I was born, and it still sounds great to me.

I should say right away that I'm reviewing the content without going into the minutia of which remaster is best. It's hard to believe, now, that this was only the second album made by the Moodies with their classic line-up. The sheer adventurousness and ambition of the album is that of a far more mature band. In many ways it's something of a forgotten Moodies album. Their 1967 album, `Days of Future Passed' contained the classic `Nights in White Satin' for which they are still best remembere. A shame, for never before, and hardly ever since, have The Moody Blues sounded as innovative, progressive, talented, or just plain daring, as on this 1968 classic.

For `Lost Chord' they dispensed with an orchestra altogether; instead, applying themselves to a multitude of instruments and armed with the mighty mellotron, they would be their own orchestra. The Moody Blues were at their best in the studio, and never more so than on `Lost Chord'.

There cannot be many introductions as eerie and mysterious as Graeme Edge's softly spoken piece outlining the plot of the album, that of finding a chord heard once, that, apparently, holds the key to a mysterious enlightenment. There's a great single in Ride my see-saw, by far the most orthodox track on the album. Dr Livingstone is Ray Thomas' usual light relief, here emphasising the quest and managing to provide an entertaining and light hearted song into the bargain. Then we have House of Four Doors, on which the mellotron is put to marvellous use; they sound as they were often referred to - the smallest symphony orchestra in the world! Legend of a mind is Ray in serious mode with this great tribute to Timothy Leary.
