time to call it a day lads
on 26 March 2008
As a life long "Moody Blues" fan who has seen the band several times as well as owning a fair sized collection of their albums on both vinyl and c.d. I have sadly, to say that I was so disappointed in this "Live" HD-DVD.
They have always been my favorite band, and, will continue to be my favorite band,my favorite time being pre "Blue Jays" days when the band were at the peak of their powers,although they produced some good stuff when they got back together in 1978,for me some of the magic had gone.
I saw them a couple of times after they reformed with Patrick Moraz having replaced Mike Pinder, and just felt then that something was missing.
This concert had all the ingrediants for a great concert, but I have to say that for me, the sound was flat, and, the vocals were not very good to say the least,especially John's. It is so hard to be critical of a band that have given me so much pleasure over the years,and will continue to do so in years to come via my collection of their music but sad to say that as a live act the magic has gone and no amount of nostalgia will change that fact..I am being generous in giving it a 3 star rating,simply for the fact that I can't bring myself to rate it less, simply because it is the Moodies
