Question of Balance songs Product Information
Question of Balance album for sale by Moody Blues was released Jan 25, 2011 on the Threshold label. The beautifully remastered version of the Moody Blues's 1970 back-to-basics album (translation: they cut way back on the overdubs) strips away the original aural murk at last, and includes informative liner-note interviews with the band about the recording process. Standout tracks include the classic sort-of protest song "Question" and "It's Up to You," one of singer/guitarist Justin Hayward's most authoritatively wistful riff-rockers. Question of Balance CD music contains a single disc with 16 songs. ...See Full Description

||The kind of music one will hear in Heaven!|
I am SO glad this tour de force is on CD. My Moodies LP's are worn down to the bone. Pure joy, pure Heavenly joy!! How can such lovely sounds be created by a bunch of human beings?! Beats me!

||Love the album, but...|
I always thought of the Moody Blues' music as somewhat more intellectual than conventional rock music. This is one of my favorite albums by this supergroup, but the treatment it got here is less than what the MB's deserved. I'm a big fan of SACD and surround sound, and the Moodies' music is tailor-made for this format. But it's touted on the album cover as 5.1 when it's really 4.0! That's right, no center channel and no LFE. (That's the subwoofer, for you neophytes. ) So the sound, which should have been much fuller, was thin in the bass. Also, it was extremely compressed. The dynamics just weren't there. To make matters worse, the extra tracks were not available on the SACD layer. These can only be heard when playing the CD layer of this disc. The CD layer, by the way, sounded better, apart from the surround mix. I still recommend this disc to diehard Moody Blues fans, but for the rest of you, the remastered CD will suffice.

||A pleasant listening experience.|
Overall a good disc. Previous to purchasing this disc,I had only heard a couple of the songs on it before. Hardcore fans of the band will no doubt wish to add it to their collection. Casual fans will better served by buying "On The Threshold Of A Dream" or "Days Of Future Passed".

The moody bluesband are very talented and actually poetic in their song writing. they don't just throw songs together sloppily. there's a lot of thought,work and time put into their music and it shows!

||Bonus SACD tracks|
The bonus tracks are available as SACD stereo on this disk, unlike the two disk sets.
