Totally. After that they were only in it for the money...

Im a Moody Blues fan (but not so much after Mike Pinder left)


I like the Moodies too. They were my first concert. But they have their 'buts'. I was listening to Days of Future Past the other day for the first time in years. John Lodge's falsetto is ear grating. Like Yoko Ono had been hired for the session.

The Moody Blues vocals needed a falsetto for that special sound we sat around stereos listening to in all states of mind.  John Lodge didn't overdo it at all.  I think he sounded just fine...


The Moody Blues, Ride my see-saw.

But I agree with you about Yoko.  Her voice would have caused irreversible brain damage.

I think it worked ok when harmonising with other voices and you're right that was an essential part of the Moody sound. But it irritates me on an exposed line. The one that stood out to me was Time to Get Away off Days.

It's nice there's at least one thing all we Beatle fans can agree on. Yoko sucked hugely.

I suppose Ill-advised Falsetto Syndrome (IFS) can afflict even the best.
Exhibit 1: John on One Day at a Time (and John had a great effective falsetto when used for good rather than evil).
Exhibit 2: Paul on Dear Friend .
Exhibit 3: George on That is All.
