It is a track with a fast and pounding rhythm, perfect background with bass and synth, refrain in the upbeat with highlighted by the strings. I adore everything on it but still I cannot say that it is an essential album in any sense. Fans can have this one, and hold on to my favorite three songs. Examples of the latter include the the first four songs that, although each is short itself, link together to form a suite of sorts. But the band would also die one hundred deaths, especially when it was discovered that most of their music in concert was pre-recorded. A really fine track with som wonderful time changes and stabs of strings.
The track opens up with a dramatic spoken intro before a forceful and a bit strange instrumental section tells the story of, I suppose, the battle itself. Blue We're so pleased to be with you Look around see what you do Everybody smiles at you. I will reply and fix as soon as possible. That should give you an idea. The fans love it though as do lovers of commercial music, so it gets 2 stars at least. A track that is forceful in a poppy way with a prominent violin.
I remember that when I was young I was ecstatic listening to this song. Wood played all of the cellos on this album, and his saw-like style is one of the main characteristics of its sound.

These instrumentals would have been great to include in the actual album on first release. In 1976 the band issued A New World Record, and that album is considered to be one of their best works. A blinding music for young people who want to relax with the melody and dance with the rhythm. A weird, off-beat section with brass and string instruments that goes off the wall. That is not to say that it holds their best material, because it doesn't, but the experimentation and oddities found on here is mesmerizing.
Thus, The Electric Light Orchestra was very well received by the critics. After this, the music would get very commercial and syrup-y albeit at times quality syrup , but on this album the band is quite original, musical and innovative, and at time raw. All tracks are composed by Jeff Lynne, who sings and plays guitars, piano, synths and he is the producer.

Part of the problem there is that they pretty much gave up on their best output only after their 2nd album.

Posted Wednesday, July 4, 2018 Review 1943012 This is Electric Light Orchestra's return, though it was without the orchestra, only Jeff Lynne singing and playing all instruments, plus a few guests.
Having said that I'll give it three stars but add that my love of the album holds no limits. But I guess the band or record company really wanted to make sure more commercial audiences and radio corporations were not turned off, and so left those off the original release.
