Album Review

Essentially, this is a reconfigured version of the 2005-vintage Gold compilation on the Moody Blues, in Universal's double-CD series. A triple-CD set with 36 songs versus that double-disc's 34, it's a lot less crowded on each platter (and one would think that another couple of songs wouldn't have been out of order -- like how about "The Day We Meet Again'" from Octave). The total overlap between the two is well over 90-percent, the major difference being the absence here of "Forever Autumn" by Justin Hayward from War of the Worlds. The annotation is minimal, the sound is excellent, and the package is small and convenient. But it is also totally unnecessary for anyone who already owns Gold.
Bruce Eder, Rovi
