  • Brilliant, in places

    By Virginia John
    The first album I ever bought, and one I return back to time and time again. When Out of the Blue is good, it's very, very good (It's Over, Turn to Stone, Twilight, and the quite extraordinary run from Believe me Now, Steppin' Out, and the magnificent Concerto for a Rainy Day suite). But when Out of the Blue is bad, it's horrid (Jungle is an embarrassment, and both Across the Border and Wild West Hero trade in the kind of tired imagery and stereotyping that would make a modern audience cringe.) Patchy and bloated as a double LP. It would have been a spectacular single LP with the dross cut out.
  • Awesome LP

    By dmmedic2
    Got this LP for my 16th birthday and started a love of a great group. Truly sad the US only plays the "hits" and not the rest of the LP. Birmingham Blues and Across the Border are to me the best tracks on the album after the Concerto for a rainy day. (Not just Mr Blue Sky)
  • Classic ELO

    By BZGringo
    I can remember when this album came out like it was yesterday. Considering the much ballyhooed leadups to this album, a double album release was, well, considered by many an expansive reach. But Out of the Blue delivered. I remember putting the needle down that first night of the release. It blew me away. Many of my favorite songs from this album are not the "hits". I guess I was not alone. I had a group of friends that like, me, connected to "Wild West Hero". We stand, arm in arm, at the top of our lungs singing along, to somewhat an Irish lore backdrop. When I hear it now, I think of those days, and ELO there leading us along in our life journey. In many regards, this album leads me on still.
  • New Favorite Song

    By ConcettadiBovino
    I had already been familiar with hits such as "Mr. Blue Sky", "Sweet Talkin' Woman" and "It's Over", but now I'm adding "Starlight" to the roster of favorites. I think I'm going to have that dreamy song stuck in my head for a long time. I can just see this song being in the next "Guardians of the Galaxy" installment.
  • Out of this WORLD!

  • Out of the Blue...It never gets old

    By Suckin up the 70s
    As a child of the 1970s I grew up on this album. Back then it was a double-album record. Boy did i wear it out. Most bands continue to mature, with each album getting better in succession. For ELO, Out of the Blue was when they peaked! With each album, Jeff Lynne continued to blend smooth harmonies with classical orchestration and some electric guitar thrown in. This record was the perfect blend of those elements. Its best listened to from start to finish. For fans of the band, there really aren't any bad songs on this.
  • A Masterpiece

    By Tony_R
    First, I’m filled with regret for never listened to this album until now, having missed it for about 40 years. I think of how I could have just been lost in the beautiful harmonies and top-notch production of Jeff Lynne. Oh well. I’m just glad that I have found it and I am enjoying it immensely. This album has the two pop mainstays of “Sweet Talkin’ Woman” and “Turn to Stone”. However, two other standout tracks, “It’s Over” and “Starlight” have me going off into a dreamy bliss of ‘70s pop. This is a GREAT album. All of the tracks are excellent. Not to be missed. Even 40 years or so later.
