Released in 1978, Octave was the Moody Blues' first release after a long hiatus after the 1972 album Seventh Sojourn. The group's ninth album, Octave was Mike Pinder's final album with the group. Patrick Moraz would replace him, beginning a new era in the group's history. The album contains use of lounge-style organs and synthesizers in place of Mellotron or Chamberlin. The album went platinum in the U.S. and reached No. 6 in the U.K.
