The Moody Blues: On the Threshold of a Dream        (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  July 27, 2009

Definitely my favorite out of the core 7 Moodys albums. It strikes a good balance between the psychedelic and progressive without getting too heavy with either. Now, my gripe is with the mastering. Not only did they master this too loud (which not only ruins the musical dynamics, but also causes ear ... more

I do have an original UK pressed London of this and this SACD does better it, but I am curious as to why there are no stereo tracks on this one. Not that the mono is bad (in some cases it's preferable). Could be that some of the tracks recorded at Chess were never mixed to stereo as were others, ... more
