Fans of the Moody Blues hungry for the band's intoxicatingly rich arrangements and soaring melodies need look no further than this terrific compilation. What it lacks in depth this collection makes up for in breadth, spanning the band's 30-year history of hits from "Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)" to "Your Wildest Dreams". Featuring some of Justin Hayward and John Lodge's best songwriting and packed with performances truly worthy of the superlative adjective greatest, this collection of hits delivers the goods. --L A Smith

50 of 50 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 27 Mar. 2003
Format: Audio CD
This compilation includes all the essential Moody blues tracks from their first UK sixties hit (Go now) to the eighties (I know you’re out the somewhere), plus Blue guitar and Forever autumn, two hits that Justin Hayward had without the Moody blues.
Among the classics here are Nights in white satin, Ride my see-saw, Voices in the sky, Question, Story in your eyes and Isn’t life strange.
Such is the legacy of the Moody blues that there is only room for the essentials on a single CD. I bought the double CD, singles+, instead. It contains all the tracks here and much else besides. Before you decide to buy this, I suggest you check that collection, which I’ve already reviewed.

63 of 64 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 24 Sept. 2003
Format: Audio CD
[One CD, with a running time of 78:22] This collection of Moody Blues hits would better be called, "The Moody Blues Through The Years." The songs run from their early Go Now (1964), through I Know You're Out There Somewhere (1988). Along the way, we get the touching Isn't Life Strange, the haunting Forever Autumn, the radiant The Voice, and many other great songs.
My one and only complaint is that Nights In White Satin is included without Graeme Edge's spellbinding poem Late Lament. I have always found that poem to be a fantastic epilogue to the song. But that's such a minor complaint. This is a great CD, and well worth the money.
By the way, the sleeve includes a one or two-sentence story of each song, and a conversation between John Reed and Justin Hayward, which tells the story of the band. Nice bonus!

In this album, the producers have collected some of the Moody Blues greatest works, ranging from the soft, smooth lyrics of " Nights In White Satin " to the fast-beat, rock 'n' roll hit of " I'm Just A Singer ". Other good songs to listen to are the ones which are solos by either Justin Hayward or John Lodge, such as " Voices In The Sky ". The two of them sing many songs together as well as solos such as the famous " Isn't Life Strange " to the meaningful and sorrowful " Forever Autumn. " I would recommend this album to anyone who wants a review of the Moody Blues greatest works or just want to listen for pure enjoyment.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Stella Carrier on 13 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD
This compilation is very well-done and put together. You really do get a feel of many of the Moody Blues Greatest Hits. Some of my favorite songs in the collection are:

The Voice: A great and uplifting song about the importance of learning to trust your feelings and inner voice (which helps explain the voice title). The song also sends a positive message that you can create your future however you want.
Your Wildest Dreams: A beautiful song about someone singing about what it felt like to them when they were with their first love, and they wonder if that person thinks about them from time to time.
Nights in White Satin: A beautiful song about being in love.
The Story In Your Eyes: An interesting musical track about living a life to good fortune and good luck.
Steppin in a Slide Zone: What makes this musical number interesting is the time travel references.

My overall favorite song after listening to this compilation is definitely still "The Voice". I have played "The Voice" frequently this week, and it always gives me joyful positive encouragement listening to it. "Your Wildest Dreams" comes in a close second. All the songs in this compilation are very good to listen to. This compilation is worthwhile to get if you like classic rock and/or soft rock.

Format: Audio CD
The Moody Blues formed back in 1964 with founder members 'Ray Thomas' 'John Lodge' and 'Michael Pinder'(occasional member) who had earlier been members of 'El Riot & The Rebels' calling themselves 'The Krew Cats'
After a pretty miserable beginning the founder members recruited 'Denny Laine' (who later went on to be in the band 'Wings') and former manager
turned drummer and band-member 'Graeme Edge' along with bass-guitarist 'Clint Warwick' with 'Decca' records they achieved their one and only
number '1' with the groups 2nd release 'Go Now' (1964) though they achieved one or two lower order hits after their big-break clicked in when signing up with 'Deram' going on to achieve a stream of hits between 1967 and 1973 now with guitarist and vocalist 'Justin Hayward' on-board.
The song everybody remembers them for is, I suspect 'Nights In White Satin' that first Charted in 1967 at number '19' and again in 1972 at number
'9' and for a third time in 1979 at number '14' (guess all three entries equals a number '1') certainly remains one of my all-time favourites.
Among the groups other hits after their early Decca years 'Voices In The Sky' (Chart '27' 1968) 'Ride My See-Saw' (Chart '42' 1968) 'Questions' (Chart '2' 1970) 'Isn't Life Strange' (Chart '13' 1972) and 'I'm Just A Singer' (In a Rock'n'Roll Band) (Chart '36' 1973) among the groups many recordings, other than 'Go Now' all other songs on-board are after the groups early Decca years.
