1970's A Question of Balance was an attempt by The Moody Blues to strip down their lush, orchestral psychedelic sound in order to be able to better perform the songs in concert. For the first time, The Moody Blues used political strife as a basis for songwriting, with the U.K. No. 2 hit in May 1970, "Question," which dealt with the controversy resulting from the ongoing Vietnam War. The album reached No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 3 in the U.S.

Excellent 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 Question of Balance repressing is excellent. The vinyl is nearly pristine and the sound itself excellent. The sound stage, imaging and clarity is first rate. Plus, the packaging is a faithful reproduction of the original gatefold cover. Overall, really well done.
