This incendiary (mostly) Welsh octet do a wonderful job in tackling the wide range of ELO tunes from disco to orchestral rock and back. Whether it's the diving strings of "10538 Overture", the operatic highs of "Rockaria!", the sheer beauty of "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" or the magnificence of "Mr. Blue Sky", the band that I've affectionately dubbed the name ExpLO do the ELO genre great justice. This time around, the slower paced Lynne gems of "Strange Magic", "Steppin' Out", the aforementioned "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" and "Telephone Line" caught my attention a little more. Having said that, "Turn To Stone" and "10538 Overture" always manage to bring a smile to my face too!
