is the twelfth The Other Side of Life studio album by British rock band The Moody Blues, released in 1986.
It is the third album of the
Patrick Moraz era, and the first for flautist and vocalist Ray Thomas not to play a major role. The music on The Other Side of Life marked the beginning of dominant synthesiser, sequencer, and drum machine use by the band, to the point that the entire album could be classified as a " synthpop" record, a surprising stylistic change for a band that had pioneered symphonic rock. The Other Side of Life contains the major hit, " Your Wildest Dreams", which, like " Nights in White Satin" before it, was a Top-10 hit in the United States. It also contains the song "Rock 'n' Roll over You", which came to prominence during the ice-chopping scene in .
