As requested by James Laubhan, I review the classic album Days Of Future Passed on its 50th anniversary.

Good review for this album! I have to say due to my dad being a massive moody blues fan I was subjected to heavy stereo sessions of him playing this and other moody’s album’s on his stereo when I was a kid! He didn’t play this one too much though, as he favoured “on the threshold of a dream” and “a question of balance” much more! I personally like the later of those two just because of the way it flows in and out of the songs which is quite nice!! Haven’t heard them in ages be nice to listen to them again some day, thanks for this video!!
Hi, very good review. I’m a huge fan of this band and was wondering what you thought of their 80s material?
Hi Ross, you should give the Moody Blues next album In Search of the Lost Chord a listen. the songs are stronger and it has more variety imho
Good review. However “Another Morning” is sung by Ray Thomas. Great singer, and I think his vocals and input were sadly missing on later albums. Tho it seems you’re not a fan of his songs on the album. They are among my favourites.
Great review I love the song Nights in White Satin
hey Ross, thanks for doing the review. I was wanting your opinion on this one. I knew it wouldn’t be an overwhelming high score from you like I might give it as you don’t enjoy progressive rock too much, and certainly not a fan of The Moody Blues like me but I think you did an excellent job covering the important aspects of an important album so well done! I like what you said particularly toward the end, that it really doesn’t sound dated to me either. Not in the traditional sense anyway that you just know it was written 50 years ago like so many 60’s albums, it does stand the test of time in many ways. Thanks again for a very well thought out review. James
