My only complaint is that this effort is too short in duration at just 38 minutes in a "Long Wave" kinda fashion! All the tracks compliment each other and because they are so good, I'm struggling to nominate my personal favourite ... which (at a push) is the beautiful "Carrie In My Dreams". There is also one song on here that MLH is totally enthused about (more than he is usually) and that is "Blowin' Away" because it also features Steve Howard from Paul McCartney's legendary seventies outfit Wings!
ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) contacted Michael Laine Hildebrandt and asked him for his take on the new album, track by track, and here it is folks:
Prologue: 'Star Trek' inspired sounds with the female voice of ('Siri') from my iPhone. Computers talking to and communicating with the orchestra building up to the big show ... technology versus violins and cellos!
I am pleased to announce that Steve Howard will feature in an exclusive ELOBF interview in the near future where we will cover his career with Paul McCartney and Wings and beyond, that BGO connection as well as his current and yet future projects.
ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends "BGO II" by Bubble Gum Orchestra to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.
Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 12-Oct-2012
