5.0 out of 5 stars EGBDF is simply magnificent!, 21 July 2009
This review is from: Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (Audio CD)
Fell in love with the Moody Blues at the age of 15 when my elder brother bought 'To our Childrens, Childrens, Children' and 'Watching and Waiting' is my favourite piece of music, bar none! But when it comes to my favourite album of all time it has to be 'Every Good Boy Deserves Favour'. It encapsulates everything that the Moodies are about. Fantastic songs, great musicianship, marvelous production and simply an album with a band at it's peak. Although you couldn't describe this as a concept album I love the way that tracks blend into one another and every track is pure gold.

'The Story in Your Eyes' is the best track never released in the UK, 'One More Time to Live' is a classic example of harmonies with multiple lyrics which others copied in the years since. The middle section in 'You Can Never Go Home' starting with 'all my life, I never really knew me till today' is soooo good and My Song' is pure Mike Pinder (God I missed him when he left to breed tropical birds in LA!). But just the start of the album with 'Procession' kinda sucks you in and immerses you into the start of a wonderful musical journey.

"I know you won't believe me but I'm certain that I did see a mouse playing daffodil" - you don't get lyrics like that anymore!!

Thanks to the Moody Blues for some truly awesome music, and for those who still wonder what all the fuss is about, listen to those first 7 albums, listen to fantastic songs and ponder why this magnificent group have never been honoured by the British music industry, which is a disgrace.

To all of the 'silent majority' out there, then as the band would say, 'thank you for keeping the faith'.
