Moody Blues - A Question of balance album cover
 A Question of Balance is a 1970 album by The Moody Blues. The album was an attempt by the group to strip down their well-known lush, psychedelic sound in order to be able to better perform the songs in concert. In order to be able to play as many new songs as possible from their new album live, the group decided (temporarily) to abandon their method of heavy overdubbing for A Question of Balance.

For the first time, The Moody Blues used political strife as a basis for songwriting with the UK number two hit in May 1970, "Question", which dealt with the controversy resulting from the ongoing Vietnam War.

Released in 1970, the album went top five in both the U.S. and the UK. However, the group would abandon the stripped-down sounds of A Question of Balance for the lusher sounds of their next two albums, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour and Seventh Sojourn.

In March 2006 the album was remastered into SACD format and repackaged with six extra tracks.

Track listing:

1. "Question" (Justin Hayward) – 5:40
2. "How Is It (We Are Here)" (Mike Pinder) – 2:48
3. "And The Tide Rushes In" (Ray Thomas) – 2:57
4. "Don't You Feel Small" (Graeme Edge) – 2:40
5. "Tortoise And The Hare" (John Lodge) – 3:23
6. "It's Up To You" (Hayward) – 3:11
7. "Minstrel's Song" (Lodge) – 4:27
8. "Dawning Is The Day" (Hayward) – 4:22
9. "Melancholy Man" (Pinder) – 5:49
10. "The Balance" (Edge/Thomas) – 3:33
