2 stars This album points out to me the clams jumping and of the waxes to eat. I just cannot believe what I hear. I liked the first work of the orchestra of electric light, but formerly of the middle of the Seventies I think that Jeff Lynne must have completely lost its brain. It of the albums far is removed progression.

It start with Tightrope and I admit the keyboard and the orchestra deep in the beginning that I have appreciate, but when the song give a kick at pied in it be a pile of crumb of bread and some sandwich with sausage for me. Telephone line descended him still other in my nose from nonsense. I do not like the vocals on this which makes me want to eat spines and to send soup to my neighbor.

Will Rockaria improve my brain? I should say not really. It is an energetic piece of music and the song of opera is nice, but it dispatches me with the right rock and not the illusion of the melody. The mission (a disc of the world) is rather accessible and the concept is riper than the preceding nonsense. Musicalled I find it more interesting, but it does not escape from my tables and chairs everywhere the brush.

Is not so much very well as well. It has its complications, but it derives too much from the names and the verbs and this eats my knees with passion. I admit that thing of Livin ' to being slightly of traditional and of me of noise will leave that where it is, however it does not help the album too much. Above the clouds seems like an interlude or something to fill spaces. It seems rather nice, but with fine the my fountain reams.

Do Ya is an anthem of rock like the thing and me all the advertising films remember which they play this in however me think it was substance of movement but I do not remember that hearing the movement made this front. The last song is in my opnion a good song, giving me freedom to the lucky find Beatles and the final few minutes give to the album a glorious end.

Does that help me? Not, not really. It is the majority of time music of noise and if you want to hear more complicated things of the orchestra of electric light, should test their two first to you, the third day, and perhaps Eldorado if you did not consume a gallon of soda scales. I am still recalled pepper and the salt and the wax of I to their presence. For ventilators only, thus it should obtain my voice for two holds the first role.--JB
