I'm happy to see so much support for the Moodies and this album. It'd have to be one of my favourite concept albums and I think it get's especially exciting at side 2, "Twilight Time" being a real climax for me, though the finish of "Nights in White Satin" is great too(co-written by composer/conductor Peter Knight). Someone mentioned "Signed D.C." from Love's first album(Mar. 1966), I too compared it to "Nights in White Satin" when I first heard it, there's a fair chance Justin Hayward was aware of this song when he wrote his.

From Brad1770
This album has one of the more interesting back stories in modern music

Broke and without commercial success at the beginning of 1967 The Moody Blues were close to rock bottom . Luckily for them label Decca had experimented with stereophonic sound for classical recordings, and hoped to capture the pop market in the same way, by interweaving classical recordings with the group's interpretation of the same music. Instead, the band decided to focus on an album based on an original stage show that they'd been working on, and mix that with classical arrangements of those songs. Keyboardist Mike Pinder had purchased a Mellotron, and had written a song, "Dawn Is A Feeling" as a starting point for a concept piece about a day in the life of everyday man. The rest as they say is history with the album and associated singles garnering moderate success in the UK in 67 and 68 . And that is that ? No .....

Fast forward 5 years , yes 5 years , and in 1972 the album and singles chart AGAIN only this time on a massive scale with 'Days of Future Passed' and "Nights in White Satin" both reaching number 2 in the US and top 10 UK and around the globe. Truly remarkable

I've seen it written that this album is perfect and it's hard to disagree with not one but 2 perfect 100/100 tracks in "The Afternoon" and "Nights..."

This album is amazing top to bottom

The future has passed but the album is timeles, a fantastic trip to a world of wonderful sounds and orchestrations.

The first, and probably best, of the Moodys' prog rock albums. Few of the tracks stand alone (Tuesday Afternoon and Nights In White Satin were released as singles) but, taken as an entire concept, it was years ahead of its time, and a portent of good things to come. A must-have for late 60's aficionados.

A fantastic album, way ahead of its time and sadly overshadowed by other releases at a time when music was in a period of constant creativity and evolution. More 'radio friendly' and popular bands (also fantastic in their own right) tended to steal the show. The musicianship on this album is stunning and listening to it from end to end is an absolute aural therapy session!

Fantastic album but it stands so low in its year of issue because its year of issue was 1967 arguably the greatest year for album releases in history. this is a classic and truly great record though.

At least 5-6 years before its time. How can it be only 13th album of 1967?

Delightful rock/classical hybrid. Considered by some to be the "genesis" of prog rock Days of Future Passed is the best concept album of 1967.

A lovely album. Lush and beautiful orchestrations and excellent songs. An underrated and slightly overlooked album.
