The Moody Blues vs Procol Harum

Recommended Posts

Well both bands were very creative, but the Moodies in my opinion covered a lot more ground. Procol was interesting but I always thought they were a little more on the gimmicky side, like on the album "Shine on Brightly".

Musically their constructions were a lot different, the Moodies had quite a few classical influences, while Procol had a harder edge.

Ulimate Moodies album was the psychedelic masterpiece "To Our Childrens Childrens Children", (1969?) not as well know as some of their more commercial stuff but in my opinion the peak of their creativity.

Oh yeah, and Repent Walpurgis brings back some fond memories - a local radio station always used it as the intro to their "progressive rock" program.
