If you are a relative newcomer to ELO or have only heard albums such as "A New World Record" or "Out Of The Blue", then "ELO 2" may come as a little bit of a shock to you the first time you hear it, especially if you're expecting the album to be anything like the solitary hit single, "Roll Over Beethoven". It's almost a completely different sound from the radio friendly Electric Light Orchestra mainstream radio listeners will have come to know and expect. Jeff's vocals are raw and more difficult to understand, the instruments sound relatively untouched by the later lush production values Jeff became renowned for and this album is so eclectic, it's very difficult to categorise. You can call it experimental, wacky, classical-influenced prog-rock if you like (that's the nearest I can come to when attempting to describe it), but it's probably best not to try to fit this album into any genre. In fact, the only album to sound anything like it is the début album by ELO, although the first ELO album has far more of a Roy Wood feel to it than this one... with good reason.

Owing to differences of opinion as to what direction the band should take, Roy Wood left ELO not long after the preparation for this album started and so Jeff Lynne was left to finish it by himself, with the aid of his newly assembled band mates, including Richard Tandy on keyboards, Mike de Albuquerque on bass, Wilfred Gibson on Violin, as well as cellists Colin Walker and Mike Edwards.

This is Jeff Lynne's first ELO album at the helm of the ship and to be fair it's a mixed bag, but a good one. The first album with Roy Wood was very innovative but very raw, here on ELO2 Jeff Lynne softens things with more polished string sections and big musical scores. As a lover of the pre-1975 ELO, I prefer this to the next album 'On the Third Day' as ELO2 is bolder and certainly braver. Standout tracks are "From the Sun to the World" a magical elaborate piece with some classical Richard Tandy piano and the EPIC "Kuiama" a strong anti-war protest from the mild mannered Lynne and at over 11 minutes it's the longest ELO track I know of. Don't buy this album expecting the tracks to resemble "Roll over Beethoven" because they're not, in fact they're a lot better.

Format: Audio CD
I was disappointed with the first ELO album First Light but ELO 2 has a lot more going for it. The opening track In Old England Town is magnificent with a riff that really rocks. Jeff Lynn really gets into the sound on the album with more guitar and better songs. Its more like progressive rock here than the pop stuff they did in the late 1970s and 1980s and its better for it. ELO 2 is a consistent collection of songs that are enjoyable and flow well with the odd one out being Roll Over Beethoven which is very different in feel to the other more progressive songs.
I have to admit the bonus tracks really are just fillers and don't do it for me at all.

This is an album they created before they became commercialised. I'm not knocking their work which was more commercial, such as Out of the Blue, or New World Record which are brilliant also; but ELO 2 is unique; it is more string orientated than subsequent albums. Aside from the bonus tracks which I don't think add much to the CD, there are the 5 tracks from the original album. Not a huge number but they tend to be longer than average, not that length is that important, but they are definitely of quality.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Peter Jones on 12 May 2007
Format: Audio CD
In the early seventies, every band seemed to want to out-weird the other! The ELO did it in spades, in a melodic and pretentious sort of way.

This album is at once both strange and enjoyable: ignore the typically over-long productions and underneath is a tuneful, original and experimental feast.

Don't expect the bland ELO of the eighties: this is the groundwork, produced just after the departure of Roy Wood.

I loved this album in 1973 and still do in 2013.
To hear it without the scratches is wonderful.
Kuiama is the standout track.

Finally picked this up to complete my CD collection of ELO's early works (I bought it on vinyl not long after it came out). Despite the absence of Roy Wood, like ELO 1, it's more proggy and less Beatley than their later albums. It has been dismissed by some as strictly for completists, but it's an interesting album and well worth a punt at the current price.

Less interesting than the first offering from ELO, now that Jeff Lynne has taken over from Roy Wood. It does offer "Roll over Beethoven", Chuck Berry's tune, but it was done better by him, methinks.
