3 stars This one appeared in my collection after befriending a second hand dealer who in fact wanted to get rid of some ELO a he had multiples of all their albums. Of course I obliged although I was no mega fan of the band. I was quite surprised that outside of the usual singles the band are able to produce some solid melodic gems.

This album begins so well with the glorious Tightrope, followed by classic Telephone Line. My favourite on this is the brilliant operatic Rockaria! beginning with opera singer and really blazing away with a full blown rock rhythm.

Other treasures include Livin' Thing, Do Ya' and Shangri-la. The album cover is classic ELO and in fact the spaceship became part of the band's image and the two are inseparable. This is not the best ELO but it is a very good album worth seeing out.
