3 stars Olivia Newton-John is my dream when I was 15 years old (today is Halle Berry) and for this motive I bought this album in MC version. Ok, with Xanad¨ I discover ELo, a good band. But not totally Prog, for me. The two faces of Xanad¨ is the reflection of the two composer. Great the songs of Jeff Lynne; variable those to signature John Farrar. In fact if Jeff lynne think an ELO album, John Farrar think a great composition for the hosts, because the songs with the sole voice of Olivia are good. Another problem is the mentality of the songs: Jeff lynne is an English man and the songs are with English/ european mentality. John farrar wrote a typical American film songs. So with these introductions it is impossible to understand the real Xanad¨ value.
