Released in 1969, just two years after the groundbreaking Days Of Future Passed, the Moodies' third collection kicked off in high gear with a gutsy Justin Hayward rocker--"Lovely To See You"--before seguing into typically cosmic territory. As ever, keyboardist Mike Pinder contributed the most unabashedly trippy numbers here: both "The Voyage" and "Have You Heard" float along dreamily on a raft of dope smoke and good karma--though the album also found the group moving away from Oriental and Indian influences, in favour of more traditional Western melodies and instrumentation, notably, Pinder's Mellotron. As ever, there's a slightly bittersweet quality to these songs, a sense of melancholy--as if the band were aware, even as they celebrated the counterculture's heyday, of its actual ephemerality. In this vein, Hayward's "Never Comes The Day" set the stage for the stoic, devotional love songs of his later work, while John Lodge's "To Share Our Love" betrayed the influence of the 1960s British blues scene upon his song writing. All in all, a strong, diverse set. --Andrew McGuire --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"In the Beginning"-once their album is opened up with a poem by Graeme Edge just as on the next album. As usual it's used as an intro to the next song or if you will the first song
"Lovely to see You" a rocker by Justin Hayward who normally rights romantic ballads. To be honest this song actually gets a little boring. I know it's included on at least three of there compilations and you can hear it live on A NIGT AT RED ROCKS, but there's other better songs on the album like
"Dear Diary" by Ray Thomas. It's a very relaxing song and it also features a flute solo. You can hear him saying something towards the end of the song, but you can't really understand what it is he's saying.
"Send Me No Wine" and "To Share Our Love" are two back-to-back songs by John Lodge. They are not really filler but they also don't really go anywhere except seques on to the next song. These two are also the only contributions by John. Kind of a regression since his big hit with "Ride my See Saw" on their previous LP "In Search of the Lost Chord", but he would do much better in the next album and the ones that followed.Read more ›
but the album hasn't really even started yet. to me, the album _really_ begins right when "so deep within you" begins. wow! one of the greatest moody blues songs. you wouldn't think it'd get any better, until you hear "never comes the day", which is without a doubt the greatest most beautiful song on the album. these two songs are the power of this album, and right at the center.
and then there's another lovably mellow song "lazy day", and by far the mellowest, "are you sitting comfortably?" a few words, and then a nice ending with "have your heard" with the awesome instrumental in the middle
i love this album. almost as good as "in search of the lost chord"..

As with most Moody Blues albums, the listener is treated to a unique introduction ("In The Beginning"). In the late sixties, singles were a way to promote albums. Read morePublished on Nov. 5 2003 by Marty From SF
