3 stars Of all the inclusions on this site I am amazed at ELO's, but happy nevertheless. I recall when ' A New World Record' was released. It received wide acclaim commercially and hit the top of most charts.Jeff Lynne is a rare talent for sure and his ongoing contributions to Tavelling Wilbury's, George Harrison etc. needs little mention here except to say his creative abilities for making pop songs could be borderline ' Beatlesque' in their success.

This is not an album to extract and review it's musical complexity, but mainly to state that it is pure and simpy loaded with great tunes!Often heard in supermarket aisles, elevator lifts, hotel lobbies, friends stereos. The catchiest of which IMO are the opener ' Tightrope', ' Telephone Line' and ' The Livin thing'. Great era for pop songs!
