Justin Hayward: “Broken Dream” (1996)

Angelic-voiced Moody Blues lead vocalist Hayward sets aside his trademark red Gibson electric for some nylon strings on this gorgeous ballad from a 1996 solo album.

The only thing that mars the performance is the apparent absence of a live drummer. Programmed tracks, assuming that’s what he used here, are inexcusable for such an established artist.

Having said that it’s a marvelous song, sung from a wizened perspective, about a midlife crossroads.

“Broken Dream” is a cover of a Weezer song. (Kidding.)
