3 stars Well-known ELO-II album has his historical value, I believe. First of all, they invented this easy accessible form of symphonic boogie, that attracted millions of listeners to more serious progressive music. Then, even if not very complex or different inside , songs of this album are all easy recognizeable, and you will hardly say the same about hundreds of other albums or artists.

Melodic, nicely arranged, catchy and listener-friendly songs - it is not so small reason to be respected! And it still not ELO pop-rock of later years. Not the best ELO album, but serious start for Lynne-influenced style for years. It's interesting, that the best album songs are not boogie-based. "Mama" became popular for years, and "Roll Over Beethoven" became their visit card for decades ahead.
