ELO's fusion of Beatles-esque harmonies and melodic structure, coupled with their symphonic arrangements was just on the verge of wearing thin at the time they released Out of the Blue. To argue that the double album went platinum because of the band's live extravaganza to support it--the band performed inside a flying saucer--is a premise worthy of consideration. Out of the Blue is has some of Jeff Lynne's finest compositions ever recorded.

"Turn to Stone" and "Sweet Talkin' Woman" are almost downright giddy in their deliveries; the former opening with a string riff, the latter with a minor key violin line, before boasting a choral background accompaniment. "Standin' in the Rain," "Big Wheels," and "Summer and Lightening" are memorable.

Electric Light Orchestra - Turn to stone

ELO - 1977 - classic line-up - and jeff lynne at the top of his genius song writing.
