This review is from: ELO 2 (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.
