3 stars The first album I ever owned by Jeff Lynne and The Electric Light Orchestra. It made me want to explore more of their music, especially because of the first 3 songs: "10538 Overture", "Kuiama", and "Roll Over Beethoven" from their great first 2 releases. The rest of this album is made up of singles and hits like "Evil Woman", "Showdown", and "Boy Blue". The singles are not bad but ELO has always been so much more then what most people hear on the radio. While this is not an essential album, the first 3 tracks provide a good sample of what early ELO was all about. For those who want more- get NO ANSWER, ELO II, and ON THE THIRD DAY, to see what the proggier part of this band was all about. 3 stars.
