3 stars The first real musical work that I ever purchased was a cassette version of Ole ElO. I was 11 and it blew my mind. The next year, I got this album as a present. After my first listen, I loved it. Of course, that was ~30 years ago and my tastes have certainly changed over the years. However, I still treasure a few of these songs. I guess I'm just a bit more emotional than many of the other reviewers on this site, since I think Telephone Line is a good song. Growing up with the radio playing AC/DC and Terrible Ted, this song was a stand-out. Sure, it's sappy,but the production is good and so is the orchestration.

My favorite tune on this album is Mission. A melacholy piece about the beauty and tragedy of Earth, from an alien point of view.
