Limited time album download included

This 1969 classic Moody Blues album features material that dwells mostly on time and what its passage means, and there is a peculiar feeling of loneliness and isolation to many of the songs. This was also the last of the group's big "studio" sound productions, built up in layer upon layer of overdubbed instruments — the sound is very lush and rich, but proved impossible to re-create properly on-stage, and after this they would restrict themselves to recording songs that the five of them could play in concert.

There are no extended suites on this album, but Justin Hayward's "Watching and Waiting" and "Gypsy" have proved to be among the most popular songs in the group's history.

Very solid pressing

Reviewer: etkirsch
I recently purchased four reissues of albums by the Moody Blues. Two were pressed by Friday Music (In Search of the Lost Chord and Seventh Sojourn) and two were pressed by UMC/Polydor (To Our Children’s Children’s Children and A Question of Balance). This is my review of the two UMC/Polydor pressings.

Unlike the Friday Music pressings, the two UMC pressings appear to be straight reissues of the original mixes on 180g vinyl so this review is solely of the quality of the repressings.

The TOCCC pressing is solid quality -- not great, but pretty good. The sonic quality is equal to that of Balance, but the pressing itself is marred by the occasional clicks and pops. Nothing dramatic – and decidedly better than the Friday Music pressings – but not the equal of the Balance pressing. Overall, solid.
