4.0 out of 5 stars Best for a long while!, 20 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Strange Times (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of the M&B5 for 25 years now - "Octave" was a 15th birthday present in 1978, after which I sought out the entire back catalogue and then subsequent new stuff. This is the best thing since "The Present" (1983) . Since then, we've had to make do with some poor albums (1 or 2 tracks good and the rest forgettable) and umpteen compilations (why? - all that was needed was "This is the Moodies, pt2"!).
English Sunset evokes the late 60's material and the next few tracks raise your spirits, like the sun coming out on a dull day. Pity that John Lodge (great guitarist) then takes on a number of bland songs beyond his limited vocal range - why has Ray Thomas been so sparingly used over the years?
But it all comes right in the end coutesy of Justin and then Graham Edge evoking Days of Future Past (contrived it may be but they deserve to get away with it).
What next? Well, with the handful of great tracks here plus "Driftwood" and "The Day We meet Again" from "Octave", not forgetting the best of the years in between, I'd say "This is the Moodies Pt 2" is there for the making!
