The album's title is a musical pun: it references both the notion of an octave; and as a word derived from the Latin octavus it refers to this being the eighth album by this line-up of the Moody Blues (following on from the previous album title Seventh Sojourn).

Another album I had the privilege of introducing to my girlfriend, and actually an opportunity to not only listen Released in 1978, Octave is the ninth studio album from The Moody Blues and dare I say one of their greatest, if not their greatest release. Certainly, that perspective is heavily based on subjectivity, for Octave isn’t often at the top of everyone’s list, but when music sounds this good, it is difficult to overlook. The low begins from now on. Shadows on the Wall sounds unconvincing and starts signalling the weakness of John Lodge's input on the subsequent Moodies album (four dull ballads on 'Strange Times') with a sense of apathy which comes in consonance with the lyrics. When John sings "if only I didn't lose you, if only we could be" I hear "I began to lose control, I began to lose control" from John Lennon's Jealous Guy . Not that it's bad. That sense of dramaticism in the singing is probably the best value in the song, not very remarkable otherwise. Once is Enough is one of those songs, three or four located in 'The Other Side of Life' whose title my mind refuses to even remember. Not much to say about a song that for me represents an utter void of inspiration and sense of direction.

Hayward's "Question" was issued as a single, reaching No. 2 in the UK. Pinder's "Melancholy Man" would be released as a single in France, reaching No. 1 there. Hayward began an artful exploration of guitar tone through the use of numerous effects pedals and fuzzboxes and developed for himself a very melodic buzzing guitar-solo sound.

With the sound of synthesizers, rather than mellotrons and orchestras, things start off well with the fine "Steppin' In A Slide Zone", but nothing that follows really matches it. At times it sounds akin to a jazz lounge record (like the un-Hayward sounding, or rather, the un-any of them sounding, "Top Rank Suite"), and the last two songs, Mike Pinder's "One Step Into The Light" and Hayward's terrible "The Day We Meet Again", really bring things crashing down at the end. marvelous song.
