Out Of The Blue comments
Comments for the album Out Of The Blue by Electric Light Orchestra:
Incredibly underrated. Only filler is an instrumental (Believe Me Now) so that's not very fair. Best tracks: Mr. Blue Sky, Wild West Hero, Turn Into Stone.
A lot of amazing pop songs but also a large amount of filler.
Great pop album. I have heard Mr Blue Sky thousands of times and still can't get bored of it. Standin in the Rain the other stand out song.
Catchy tunes, superb arangements and a masterful production, Lynne is one of the best pop songwriters ever and this is his finest hour, no filler whatsoever IMO, an album that has to make you smile...
A great album.
Although I have to say there's a lot of reasonable filler-like tracks in there, particularly in the first half of the album. I've never been a fan of ELO's 'sweet talkin' woman' style songs, and there's a barrage of them from tracks 2-7. After that though the orchestra is brought back in, and that's where they really excel, with songs like Standin' in the Rain, Mr. Blue Sky and Wild West Hero, which are all excellent, as is the opener Turn to Stone.
Turn To Stone, Sweet Talkin Woman, Mr. Blue Sky, Wild West Hero, and Its Over. These are just the singles. The third side concerto for a rainy day -possibly the best side of any lp ever. One of the best lp's ever.
This album was very big in 1977. ELO was at the height of their popularity. The problem was, disco and punk were starting to gain momentum, and Out Of The Blue was the beginning of the downside for ELO. A double album was a bit ambitious, and a lot of the material was not up to par. Jeff Lynne as a producer had reached a point where nothing ELO did sounded rough at all...everything was extremely slick with no edge. And he was starting to trim the lineup down...the string players were finding their roles diminished, and the band was down to a four piece by the time of the next album, Discovery. As ambitious as it is, it's also Lynne starting to shortcut his own band, and starting to not care as much. And while Out Of The Blue has some great moments, it also has some huge cracks in it. For truly underrated ELO, see Eldorado.
somewhere down the line it became "uncool" to like elo. the line is broken. as ffudnebbuh stated "really underrated album"
favourite track: Turn to Stone
