Sound: This album is the Moodies first really in depth psychedelic/inidan/rock/acid rock album. It really explores the 1968 experimental stuff. The band mastered 33 instruments to do this album. And they all right lyrics. The guitar work is soft and soothing, the bass rides perfectly with Ray Thomas's flute which they are also soothing and the drums, phenominal. This album has a more soft psychedelic feel almost as if you are in a transe. The music only stops twice: once in between House Of Four Doors part II and Voices In The Sky, and another for the ending of course. The drums flow perfectly as one of the key instruments in this record. // 9

Lyrics: Ray Thomas, and Mike Pinder both have mesmerising baritone vocals. Johne Lodge has more of an alto. and Justin Hayward's soothing tenor has a soft sound to it. Lyrics: mesmerising. It's like I said almost like your in a transe. Flow perfect with the music they each write their own songs and I think they all sing their own songs. // 10

Overall Impression: This record is very ground breaking. It's wonderful. If I lost it I would definetly buy it again. Legend Of A Mind is the best Moody Blues song ever made! This record is a must have for any Moody Blues or Pink Floyd lover! // 10
