If any band has ever deserved it's own thread,it's surely this band.Not only did they influence rock and roll,but created what would come to be known as progressive rock.Days of Future Passed is quite possibly one of the great albums ever.They have released other timeless classics such as In Search of the Lost Chord and On the Threshold of a Dream. I hope to see comments from prog rock fans on this band,because surely you cannot consider yourself a prog fan and not know of these guys can you? I would like to think not! Anyways let me know what you think about this truly great band.

Great band...I only have the album you gave me there bud...Days of Future Passed...that's a really good album...I love the orchestral arrangments and that...it's quite a mature release for them so early in their career...I didn't really like their 80s stuff....didn't they turn into a Vegas act?

Yeah they sorta did,I'm not as big a fan of their 80's stuff as I am their earlier stuff.Yeah I also believe they were ahead of their time,and as for the orchestral part,I completely agree with you bro.Peter Knight is the man.

I really like two songs from this band: "Nights in White Satin" and, of course, "Melancholy Man". The latter is just so, well, it makes me feel rather emo ha(k, don't tell anyone i said this). No but seriously, the singing patterns and use of keys are really amazing! Really good band.

P.S
Damn it, am i the only one posting on this thread without a "Hampster Metal' sig?

I have been listening to that album over and over the past few days.

"Blasting, billowing, bursting forth
With the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes
Man, with his flaming pyre
Has conquered the wayward breezes

Climbing to tranquility
Far above the cloud
Conceiving the heavens
Clear of misty shroud"

Just love it, man!

I haven't been on here in awhile, so it's probably been forever since you left that post. I do very much enjoy that album, "Candle of Life" is such an awesome song! It's my dad's favorite song! My favorite album is still either On the Threshold of a dream or days of future passed!

It's a good album, but not even close to their best, I gave you their best one in my opinion, on the threshold of a dream is probably their second best, again in my opinion.

one of the greatest rock bands ever, one of the creators of the prog genre. All albums from their debut to 1972 are brilliant. This is in fact their, let's say " their golden era". One other thing I like about them is that although they lost their progressive touch, their pop rock efforts are enjoyable and catchy, not bad at all. I have listened to their 1999 album "strange times", which I found enjoyable and well crafted.

I knew I'd get that reaction out of you.

On a serious note: Innovators aren't always the best, i.e. Black Sabbath.

But you seriously don't know that until you have actually listened to a band, and I am positive that you have listened to very little of this band

The Moody Blues are great very soothing, very chill.
My mom likes them too I think, the 'semi-orchestral sounds' can get obnoxious at times, but overall, great!

I'm so very glad there's a topic about The Moody Blues too! I agree with those who wrote they are one of the greatest bands ever! I think so too, absolutely one of my favorite bands ever, though I don't listen to too much prog metal, I must admit! I know it's cliche, but my favorite song has to be ''Nights In White Satin'', since it's my favorite unrequited love song ever and generally one of my favorite songs ever. I've liked them ever since I've read the story behind the aforementioned song.Oh and my mom loves them too, seems like many of our parents like them hehe. Bottomline:simply a superb band.
