Jeff Lynne’s ELO, Alone in the Universe

Jeff Lynne has never denied being a huge Beatles fan. But when ELO’s first single in aeons sounded like the work of a man still listening to 1994’s Free As A Bird, it seemed he might have lost his way a little.

Turns out not. ELO fans have been waiting 14 years for Alone in the Universe and they won’t be disappointed. There’s a real joie-de-vivre in these songs and although the ghosts of George Harrison and Roy Orbison are never far from proceedings, it’s every inch an ELO album.
