Picking up where ELO left off

It doesn’t sound like Out of the Blue by any stretch but, if ELO stayed together as a band, I’m sure this is the sound that would be heard. Most of the reviews are complaints about how it doesn’t sound like 1977 ELO. Musicians evolve in stylistic directions. Jeff Lynne’s music has evolved nicely and he found a way to modernize the ELO sound. The album is definitely great compared to 98% of the stuff out there today.

ELO is back!

Zoom was a great album. The first three songsof Alone in the Universe suggest this will be as well. Is it Jeff Lynne? Yes. Is it ELO? Yes. Is it 1977 ELO? No. TImes have changed. That big, over-engineered, over-dubbed wall of sound from A New World Record and Out of the Blue doesn't work anymore. I'm glad Jeff continues to bring out great music, and I'm glad he continues to evolve. He has adopted a simpler, more pure and intimate approach, with enough of the old ELO tricks to let us know who this is. I love it.

New fan of ELO

I was never a fan of ELO but I am now. This album stuck the first time I heard it on XPN. Worth every penny.
