3 stars This is probably the pinnacle of what the Electric Light Orchestra acheived during the years when you could still call them progressive. This album makes it painfully clear where they found their progressive inspiration as well, as certain songs can't help but recall The Beatles to your memory. Ocean Breakup, New World Rising, and Dreaming of 4000 are all solid prog tracks, while the two instrumentals, Daybreaker and In The Hall of the Mountain King, stack up well against what other prog groups were doing during the heart of the Golden Age.

Nevertheless, I can't in good conscience give this more than 3 stars. It's good, but it just doesn't compare with the masterpieces that were being put out by other groups at the time. Sadly, the Electric Light Orchestra would prove to be at it's best when putting out progressive pop instead of pure prog.
