You can't help the niggling feeling that this is an ELO album for marketing purposes only (it's easier to market ELO than Jeff Lynne!). In essence it's a Jeff Lynne solo work albeit with Richard Tandy on it too, plus some of his old friends popping in for some quick cameos. But this album moreover signals Lynne's readiness to come back to ELO and to play the music he stopped playing 15 years previously. The tracks on "Zoom" are solid and make better listening than "Balance of Power" the previous ELO album, although I feel Jeff is still slightly stuck in the 80's! Fav tracks include "Moment in Paradise" which sounded better live on the VH1 Storytellers programme, & "Ordinary Dream" which is the most ELO sounding track on the Album. All in all I could speculate on whether this album should be classed as an ELO album , but who cares I'm glad it was made and I'm proud to have it bookending my ELO albums. Pity about the lack of a proper Zoom tour but check out the Zoom DVD and stick it on 5.1 surround! Sweet!!

I really had a gut feeling about this one, my experience of ELO before this was 1986's fluid 'balance of power' and the song 'Last train to London. What really carries 'ZOOM', and what really makes it signature ELO is in the broad, based confident sound a solid production. Richard Tandy's on the spot pounding electric piano adds something echoes somewhat of a refined and refreshed, sound of TOTO, on the uplifting life enthusiastic 'Alright' and it works great. One of my favourite tracks 'It Really Doesn't Matter At All' combines the seamles swirly ELO production with a touch of BYRDS but like new and improved. I like it how all tracks play on without problem and how refreshing and timeless this album sounds. There are also delicate touches of Rockabilly on 'Zoom', but as with 'Hold on Tight' on 'Time' and 'Send it' on 'Balance of Power' it is clean cut and professional and does not steer away from the overall flow of the album, adding some occasional seasoning is more like it. 'Zoom' too me a flawless album that has everything in the right place

It is unnecessary to compare it to Lynne's 1990 SOLO ALBUM `Armchair Theater' which in itself but has a different setting, vision and more of a laidback `get up and go' mindset and production style.

This is an album which builds.
It opens with one of the more enigmatic lines in rock and follows up with a useful reminder that no-one writes middle-eights quite like Jeff Lynne. Then onto a more modern number with haunting lyrics and back to cracking sing-along-a-rock for the third track. But where is the meat of the album?
Track 4 changes the mood, and all of a sudden the listener is hooked. Can I hear 'Nowhere Man' somewhere in here? By track 5 you're deep in the Zone, and by Side 2 (yes, this CD really does feel like it has two sides) you want to see it through to the end... but I won't spoil the story. Put it on in your car, and make sure the journey is long enough to fit in the whole thing.
This is a virtuoso album, almost a homage to the entire history of rock.
And it gets inside your head. I think I know what Jeff is singing about... and I think you might too.

This is, essentially and accurately the Electric Light Orchestra for the modern day, the songs are reflective of their old style yet with a modern twist, and there are some true gems on this album, songs like Easy Money, State of Mind and Lonesome Lullaby wouldn't look out of place in a ELO album in the 1970's and the reboot includes two extra little special songs for the discerning ELO Fan. One Day, which is a song that i can't really relate to many other ELO songs, yet is very sweet. And a live rendition of Turn to Stone from the Zoom tour, and is a fantastic rendition.

Zoom carries on pretty much where Jeff Lynne left off with his solo album "Armchair Theatre" - but with a much lusher sense of production that gives it more of an ELO-feel. However, a quick peek at the production notes tells you this is pretty much a solo effort, despite the list of people thanked in the sleeve notes. As ever, Lynne can churn out a catchy song, and perhaps it's a sign of the talent of the man that you think "surely this has been composed before", before it's so hummable and instantly memorable.

It's easy to be snooty about such music, but crafting catchy pop songs that grab and keep your attention is no easy matter, although Jeff Lynne has been making it look easy for a long time now. Sadly, this album from 2001 is not only quite hard to track down - but is also (as far as I know) the most recently composed Lynne material. The Zoom tour never happened, and since this CD came out it's been only re-issues of old classics. Time for more!
