“The Balance”

When I was in my late teens, one of the bands that made a huge impact on me was The Moody Blues. I loved that their albums had a theme woven throughout the tracks, and when I heard the “Question of Balance” album (released 1970), it struck many chords (no pun intended) about “my world” at that time.Β  The songs generally covered the precarious peace that existed as a result of theΒ  nuclear bomb posturing by both the USA and (then) USSR, and posed numerous questions about why were in that situation and where did we fit in as individuals. The tone of the album starts off with despair, but slowly progresses to hope (for a better future). The final track (link below) is “The Balance”, and is the perfect ending to a powerful album. Enjoy!
