Great Follow-Up To "Days Of Future Passed",
Rezension bezieht sich auf: On the Threshold of a Dream (Audio CD)
As with most Moody Blues albums, the listener is treated to a unique introduction; "In The Beginning" being the first song to do this. In the late sixties, singles were a way to promote albums. Hayward's "Lovely To See You" and "Never Comes The Day" were not high markers on the charts, but a good indication of what this second classic album had to offer.
Thomas provides the 'near' spoken word song, "Dear Diary" and Lodge gives us the pleasant, but tepid rocker "Send Me No Wine". The other songs on the album maintain the surrealistic mood with an almost hypnotic pace. Mike Pinder orchestrated the legendary sequence of "Have You Heard, Pt 1 and Pt. 2" with "Voyage" in between; cementing the Moody Blues mellotron sound and securing the group it's psychedelic status.
Although not considered to be one of the most popular albums produced by Tony Visconti, "On The Threshold Of A Dream" was still the first album after the groundbreaking "Days Of Future Passed". This positive collection ensured that the group was a self contained unit and not a flash in the pan. It is a beautiful piece of work.
