The Moody Blues: To Our Children's Children's Children (Threshold THS 1)

David Griffiths, Record Mirror, 1 November 1969

A PORTENTOUSLY voyagistic 2001-style opening, with whooshing sound effects, leads into a "Heavenly choir", then solid beat music and a bit of narrative with strong poetic and philosophical ambitions — that's the opening attempt to get 'Higher And Higher' and it nicely sets the album's tone.
