The last ELO album to make a major impact on popular music, Out of the Blue was of a piece with its predecessor, A New World Recordas the most lavishly produced album in the group's history, but it's a much more mixed bag as an album, suffering from overkill in several departments.

For starters, it was a double LP, a format that has proved daunting to all but a handful of rock artists. The songs were flowing fast and freely from Jeff Lynne at the time, however, and the idea of a double LP was probably tempting as a chance to release an album that was irrefutably substantial.

And well more than half is very solid, at least as songs, if not necessarily as recordings. And much of the rest is very entertaining -- "Across Conquista - Daniel Santos - Louvores Na Voz (Vol: 1) Border" sounds like what would result if the Beatles ' "Paperback Writer" and the Beach Boys ' Heroes and Villains" had somehow produced an offspring, with some synthesizer digressions and phased drumming typical of mid- to late-'70's progressive rock.

Those digressions and the heavy sound Battle For The Sun - Placebo - Battle For The Sun Redux the orchestra, as well as the layer upon layer of vocal overdubs, however, also often seem out of place.

All in all, the group was trying too hard to generate a substantial sounding double LP, complete with a suite, "Concerto for a Rainy Day. Blue Sky," which sounds like a weird musical genetic amalgam of various Paul McCartney songs from "All Together Now" through "Another Day" -- and even it gets too pretentious in its final minute.

Even here, the Electric Light Orchestra - Out Of The Blue couldn't leave well enough alone -- rather than ending it on that note, they had to finish the album with "Wild West Hero," a piece of ersatz movie music that adds nothing to what we've heard over the previous 65 minutes. In its defense, Out of the Blue was massively popular and did become the centerpiece of a huge worldwide tour for the group which earned them status as a major live attraction for a time.
