Electric Light Orchestra: On The Third Day (United Artists)

Jon Tiven, Zoo World, 14 February 1974

AM I EVER proud of Jeff Lynne, a Birmingham Boy who has lived down a past that he's not particularly proud of and put out a record totally divorced from anything he's ever done. Jeff Lynne has seen The Electric Light Orchestra through to its logical next-step, taking them to greater heights of musical excellence. What should naturally follow but greater glory?
