Customer Review

on 7 June 2011
By the time the Moodies split in the early Seventies, they had recorded seven album. Creatively shattered and tired of seeing each other day in and day out, they called it a day...that is, until they reformed for Octave (released 1978).

Octave is a 'slow burn' - it takes a few plays to truly warm to it, then suddenly the penny drops. It is an absolute gem, oozing with gorgeous melodies and genuinely moving compositions. Take for instance 'Driftwood' - just sublime in its construction with the most beautiful lyrics.

Compared with earlier Moodies albums, it has a 'poppier' sound, with synths replacing the Mellotron and more contemporary compositions.

Later releases of the CD come with five live bonus tracks recorded at the time, making this a terrific package.
