Keys of the Kingdom is the fourteenth album by the rock band The Moody Blues, released in 1991. Although some of the tracks recall the songwriting on Sur la Mer, the failure of Keys of the Kingdom to produce any major hit singles would mark the beginning of the Moodies' decline in popularity with mainstream audiences after their success in the MTV video generation. The album saw the band beginning to return to a more airy rock orientated sound (similar to The Present), rather than the previous two albums' forays into synthesiser pop. Flautist Ray Thomas plays more of a substantial role on this record, with his first ambient flute piece in eight years. The album was recorded and mixed at four London studios: Olympic Studios, RG Jones Studios, Mayfair Studios and The Hit Factory (not to be c

  • Keys of the Kingdom Albums de The Moody Blues Sur La Mer(1988) A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra(1993) Keys of the Kingdom est le quatorzième album studio des Moody Blues, sorti en 1991 et ce sera le dernier album avec Patrick Moraz qui quitte le groupe pour poursuivre sa carrière solo, déjà entamée alors qu'il était avec Yes. Patrick fut remercié après cet album pour n'avoir pratiquement pas contribué à la production musicale, il n'apparait que sur trois pièces et on ne le cita ainsi que comme "musicien supplémentaire". Deux autres musiciens de studio furent alors engagés pour ce poste. Bias Boshell qui succèdera à Patrick après son départ du groupe, puis Paul Bliss qui joua aussi pour les Hollies, Uriah Heep et Olivia Newton-John. Une section de cuivres fut aussi ajoutée à l'album ainsi qu'un batteur supplémentaire Andy Duncan qui joua sur deux chansons, puisque Graeme Edge ne joua lui aussi que sur trois pièces de l'album, le reste fut des percussions programmées électroniquement.

Flautist Ray Thomas plays more of a substantial role on this record, with his first ambient flute piece in eight years. The album was recorded and mixed at four London studios: Olympic Studios, RG Jones Studios, Mayfair Studios and The Hit Factory (not to be confused with the NYC-based studio of the same name). Drum machines are still used heavily; Graeme Edge only performs on three songs, with session drummer Andy Duncan providing live drums on two more, and the rest being programmed. Keyboardist Patrick Moraz was fired from the band after completing only a few tracks for this album, and he is listed as an 'additional' keyboard player. As this was the second time the band and their keyboardist would part ways, their future album and re-release booklets would distance themselves from Moraz and any future keyboardists they hired from being members of the band. This was the last Moody Blues album before their extravagant concert at Red Rocks and a series of symphonic tours with orchestras. (en)
