The Moody Blues, 'A Question of Balance' (1970)

It's almost hard to imagine these days who, exactly, the Moody Blues were for: People who thought Procol Harum was too weird? Or that Donovan wasn't weird enough? Either way, the band had a string of extremely popular, vaguely mystical, richly orchestrated albums from the late sixties through the early seventies and are still going today. 1967's Days of Future Passed album and the same year's "Nights in White Satin" are acknowledged classics, but the rest of the band's catalog, including 1970's A Question of Balance, which made it all the to No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200, have never really come close to entering that magical place where albums go to find new audiences forever. It's a bit hard to understand why, as the English fivesome were consistent purveyors of Pink Floyd-lite, and singer-guitarist Justin Hayward's regal voice is undeniably impressive.
