Though with two years and one album - "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour" - inbetween, this sounds like the natural follow up to "A Question Of Balance". No apparent themes or bridges, just a collection of very good songs. After six years of releasing one melodic gem after another it's amazing they could keep up the high quality. On this I prefer the calmer numbers and get the same warm heartfelt atmosphere as on QOB. The apparent placidity in "New Horizons" and "When You're A Free Man" hides great melodies and the guitar counterpointing the vocals in "Isn't Life Strange" still gives me goosebumps. For me this was the last Moody Blues album to which I got an immediate connection. The 1978 comeback with "Octave" and following albums didn't do it for me the same way and I lost contact. Good thing a couple of their intermediate solo works came with at least some of the original feeling. Issued and reissued world wide on vinyl, 8-track, cassette and CD through the years, some with bonus cuts. First US on London/Threshold (THS 7). Premiere UK had label as shown here, heavy vinyl and matt fold/out cover with picture/lyric insert. (MBÅL*) (DÄRR*)
