A fabulous compilation of ELO music that missed on a few details.
Reviewed in the United States on August 29, 2017
This review is not a review of the quality of the songs within but the packaging, presentation and engineering that went into this compilation. First off this double album compilation is jam packed with ELO favorites and will not disappoint in regards to the selections within. The packaging is VERY minimalistic with the same artwork on the inside and on the liner notes insert. There is not a single picture of the band, artists or album covers from which these songs originated, the LPs are even in plain paper sleeves. Audio quality is good but they pushed the loudness pretty close to the edge but didn't break it however some passages lost their subtleness in the process, my original vinyl releases have more subtle details and dynamics when comparing identical songs. The vinyl engineering on the cutting is outstanding with the innermost tracks holding the same fidelity as the outermost tracks, the highs hold together well all the way through. All in all this is a great compilation of ELOs greatest hits and will be sure to bring you auditory joy, I only wish a little more detail was put into the production and presentation of this release. Overall a great value for the money!
