Days of Future Passed by The Moody Blues
A Grand and Progressive Rock Classic
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: Ambitious. Grandiose. Orchestral. Conceptual. Formative. Unprecedented. Unexpected. British. All of these adjectives apply both to The Beatles' and The Moody Blues' albums of the same year. Both are expansive, beloved, and significant albums.
Days of Future Passed was The Moody Blues' second studio album and their greatest success, with definitive singles in "Nights in White Satin" and "Tuesday Afternoon." Music writers often hail the album as a precursor to progressive rock. One of the first concept albums, the record relates the typical working day of a journeyman through romantic poetry and vast orchestrations brilliantly delivered as rock ballads.
