Pinder > Lodge & Edge

Guess Lodge had that lovely falsetto we all associate with The Moodies but his material was consistently lame or uninteresting, whereas while Pinder did write some dopey tunes, he also penned a few of their absolute best tunes ("Sunset", "Out & In", "Have You Heard?", "Lost In A Lost World", "Sun Is Still Shining", "When You're A Free Man") and you can't really say that about Lodge, except for maybe "Candle of Life". And Edge is basically just a pretentious wannabe composer/poet who never knew his place (don't know anything about these guys personally but none of them strike me as the type to make Edge recognize the hard truth about his role in the group, so they all just sorta humored him).
