I have all of the Moody Blues albums and loved them more than the Beatles in the 1960's 70's.This release is a remastered 2011 version. however, no extra unheard, live or alternative tracks as were on the the earlier deluxe re-releases. Shame really it's just the original album. The first 5 tracks . Say It With Love, Bless The Wings (That Bring You Back), Is This Heaven?, Say What You Mean, Lean On Me (Tonight)are superb.However, the album kind of disappoints from then on with only Celtic Sonnet and the finale Never blame the Rainbows for the Rain up to the Moody Blues high standards.The only 2 new albums since this one "Strange Times" and a aaarggh Christmas album were very poor. Since then constant "old" compilations.Worth 4 stars!

Released with no recordings years before and after, the Moody Blues seemed to be searching for a better sound. It's a shame they fell short of their genius. Concert staples like "Say It With Love" and "Lean On Me (Tonight)" are not up to par for a group like the Moody Blues. "Say What You Mean" only grates with it's repetitive lyrics and "Magic" just isn't. However, the album is saved by some nice moody cuts like, "Bless The Wings..." and the lovely "Never Blame The Rainbows For The Rain". It may not be their best work and there is a reason this was not remastered. Regardless, any Moody Blues fan will enjoy it anyway

Keys Of The Kingdom...A very deep and spiritual feeling to this album. I particulary love, Bless These Wings.. it digs at your emotions..Is this Heaven does the same in a more refined sense, Hope and Pray Takes you to higher levels of thoughts within the very soul. I love Ray Thomas' Celtic Sonant it's beautiful and at the end of the Album the rare combination of Justin & Ray penned Never Blame The Rainbows For The Rain...This no. could hit the charts if the Moodies released it now...its hit material catchy thought provoking and the music is Pure Moodies class...On the whole this Album reflects the more spiritual side of the Moody Blues a very important side of their music...buy it you must or lose out on a brilliant set of songs.

never got around to buying this "album" when released, as i have nearly all the "moodies" stuff since 1968, did"nt dissapoint as usual as they have been one of the most inovative bands for many years.
