One of my first ever albums I listened to. Steppin' Out is perfection.

Not all stellar, but all good enough to justify making it a double. Great album.

No filler on this album, Mr. Blue Sky is an all time classic track, and I agree a lot to listen to in one go.

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.

From BLO
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
