Ya see, I love every song on this album, but my score comes down to album flow, for some reason it is SOOO hard for me to listen to this album in one sitting, it just feels so weird, I really can't explain it, these songs do better as singles rather than pieces of one cohesive product.

One of Jeff Lynne's greatest. Every song is fantastic, and that is hardly ever the case with album, especially double albums.

It's really impressive when an artist makes a double album without a single bad song. Sure, one or two tracks I'd consider to be just "ok" but with such beautiful melodies and good vibes on every other track, this is my favorite double album of all time.

Unmistakably Lynne. Some tracks might induce anxiety with all the layering. Still, band has a very distinctive - now classic - sound

How is this ranked so low? Does pop music get much better?

Beautiful pop. It's a little too slick for my tastes but you can't deny the beauty of the melodies and songs. Turn to stone, sweet talkin' woman, and, Mr. Blue sky, are essential pop songs. Ambitious and enjoyable.

An ambitious project for a band that mainly wrote pop singles. Filling up 2 discs with 3-4 minute hits is hard, and it mostly pulls it off. About 3/4 of this hits the mark.
