3 stars A typical mid-eighties album in sound, with electronic drums, synthesizers and a sax in two songs, but I still like this album. It has mainly "sad lyrics" about a broken relationship, but I like some of them, like "Heaven Only Knows", "Getting to the Point" (the best of all), "Sorrow About to Fall" and "Calling America" (a very good song for a single). The recording and mixing of the album sound very typical "digital" of the 80s, but it`s good, but maybe a bit saturated. Jeff Lynne was maybe tired and sad, but in this album he still produced music with quality.It is mainly a Pop Rock album of the 80s, but it was, IMO, a good way to say "goodbye" from ELO then. Richard Tandy and Bev Bevan did a good job, too.
