Zoomish, not ELOish....


Long time ELO fan, and happy that there is more coming out. Unfortunately, all the years Jeff spent with talented muscisians that helped him as he guieded ELO's past, are just replaceable instruments in Jeff's mind. No doubt, Lynne was the leader, but the sound from Eldorado through Discovery, the members all contributed their unique bits. Bev's drums, Kelly's bass and occasional vocals, Mik's violin, Louis Clark's amazing string arrangements, and Mack engineering it all, while Jeff looked over his shoulder. The string section WAS the hit at the early live shows! With all the contributions Jeff has made in collaborations with others, I hope some day, he appreciates the talent that he had at his disposal with the members of ELO. This, like Zoom, is ok. The drums are light, and strings overly sythesized providing a sound that, well, feels constrained. I'll wait for a complete review once the album is out, but this song is lacking in some ways.

Can't wait!!


I'm so glad that Jeff Lynne continues to share his talent with the rest of the world. When I Was A Boy is beautiful and I can't wait for the rest of the album to be released!!

Traveling Wilburs???


Sounds way more the Traveling Wilburys than ELO.

About Jeff Lynne's ELO

Formerly known as Electric Light Orchestra -- an influential pop/rock group who took their cues from the Beatles -- their name was eventually changed to Jeff Lynne's ELO, primarily to differentiate from tribute acts and offshoots that were touring under similar names. Since their formation in the '70s, the group underwent multiple line-up changes, with members staying with the band for varying amounts of time; drummer Bev Bevan, for example, played alongside Lynne for a number of years before leaving, eventually forming his own iteration of the band: Electric Light Orchestra, Part II.

The name of Jeff Lynne's ELO was coined in 2014 for a performance in Hyde Park, but was retained for releases and tours in the following years. In 2015, they released a studio album, Alone in the Universe -- the debut record to feature their new name on the cover -- which consisted of their first original material since 2001's Zoom. With fresh songs at their disposal, the band went on tour, including dates in America, festival appearances, and a U.K. show at Wembley that was recorded for their 2017 live album Wembley or Bust. ~ Liam Martin
