Compositionally, "On The Third Day" is extremely strong. The four concurrent songs which were, as a whole, a continuous piece of music filling side one of the original LP entirely, were, arguably, Jeff Lynne's most accomplished piece of work right up until that point in time and they still sounds rather brilliant several decades later.Read more ›
The melodies in these tracks are all terrific and memorable; there are great heavy rock licks in tracks like Ma-ma Belle; and a beautiful sad mood in tracks like Oh No Not Susan.
The Hall of the Mountain King is pointless: I deducted a star for this one! But overall a very enjoyable, slightly experimental album, full of ideas and which captures Jeff Lynne at his best.
This their third album then still maintains the sound of their earliest work while condensing the subject matter down to a set of shorter but still intricate pieces. This is also before Jeff Lynne met up with Louis Clark to add a full orchestra to ELOs sound, so instead we have the classic early ELO hard edges strings. In fact this is probably the heaviest sound you'll ever hear from the later king of orchestral pop-rock.
The first half of the album is presented in the form of a symphony of 4 contrasting songs with a surrounding sawing cello theme. Then we have two rocking singles separated by Daybreaker, purely instrumental with some wonderful synthesiser work and a ELOs signature driving rock pace.
The nightmare inspired masterpiece that is Dreaming of 4000 returns to the sawing strings of the earlier symphony. This would have been a fitting end to the album yet we are given a cover of In The Hall Of The Mountain King with well considered arrangements and bassy drumming to finish the proceedings.
One for the real ELO fan and any other fans of hard-edged prog rock. Let those cellos rip.
