Electric Light Orchestra: On the Third Day

Greg Shaw, Rolling Stone, 31 January 1974

IF YOU LIKED ELO II for its weavings of familiar classical motifs through lengthy songs, On the Third Day will both please and disappoint you. If, on the other hand, you loved 'Roll Over Beethoven' but thought the LP's other four songs overblown, you'll find about the same measure of pleasure here (if not more).
