ELO fans who found in Long Distance Voyager a new Discovery can be excused for thinking there's no Time like The Present. Just as ELO's follow-up to the sweeping Discovery seemed tame by comparison, so The Present failed to match the grandiose arrangements of the Moodies' previous record. It's still a solid effort, bolstered by strong songwriting and pleasant melodies, but as good as the opening "Blue World" is, its downbeat message is no substitute for the clarion call of "The Voice.

Voices In The Sky. 1984.

December is the sixteenth and final album by The Moody Blues. The Christmas themed album released in 2003 is their first album since The Magnificent Moodies to feature covers in addition to original material. It is also their first album following Ray Thomas' retirement from the band. Don't Need a Reindeer" (Justin Hayward) – 3:59. December Snow" (Hayward) – 5:11. In the Quiet of Christmas Morning (Bach 147)" (Bach, Hayward, John Lodge) – 2:51. On This Christmas Day" (Lodge) – 3:40.

John Lodge rocks a bit more, at a few points, compared to on the earlier albums (Ex: "Sitting At The Wheel"). At least 5 of these should have literally burned up the charts when this album came out. 'The Present' is just as good as 'Long Distance Voyager'.
