Telephone Line Different Vocal Surrender Tightrope Instrumental Early Rough Mix Telephone Line Instrumental It becomes clear at once how well the album is produced.
The quiet parts with moog and the sound of the phone when "no one's answering" almost makes one shiver. The official hit rockers of the album are 'Rockaria! Jeff Lynne's skill of writing effective pop songs is undeniable. The city at night in the cover reflects that charm - fruit of the mastery production. The closing song 'Shangri-La' is a sweet ballad, the protagonist missing in self-pity something dear now lost.
Shangri-La refers to James Hinton's famous novel about a secret country of happiness. When the song has faded, the music creeps back to repeat a symphonic phrase with some background choir and distant vocals. That's another magic moment of the album that made me dig it as a kid. I do have some fond memories of the album as I was introduced to it in the late 's as a child. Lynne's vocals and production have vastly improved, too.
However, it isn't progressive rock and never will be. With that in mind, I can only recommend this to collectors and fans only and thus it deserves two stars. All others, please avoid. I started to understand that a couple of violin and cello arrangements over clearly Rock songs plus a guy that could fake the voice of a Soprano on stage is not Prog, and my blind happiness ended.
A lot of people consider Kansas an AOR band only because they dared to release a very good but commercial song named Dust in the Wind, well "Telephone Line" is even less original, absolutely commercial and made exclusively to ensure the album will have a hit single. This track takes the entire album down, if you have problems with sugar, please avoid it or you'll need insulin.
If I had to choose a good track I would stay with the melancholic and incredibly beautiful "Livin' Thing" the violins give a gypsy Hungarian atmosphere that IMO is close to perfection, if any track was made for Jeff's voice is this one.
The rest of the songs are almost in the same vein, rock with violins and Cello, and a bunch of guys pretending to be more original than they really are By no reason this album should be considered Progressive Rock, because it isn't even remotely close, but despite the genre it's a very good release Except for the horrendous "Telephone Line" , so if you just want good music it's your album.
How to rate "A New World Record" is another problem, 5 or 4 stars are out of the question, because it's not essential for any Prog' collection being that by this point of their musical evolution ELO wasn't even Prog related. In , most of the radio stations in my country played Disco Music almost endlessly.
I never have been a fan of this style of music. So, "A New World Record", which sounded then and it still sounds to me like commercial Rock, was a good option. Recently, I listened to this album again, and my views changed. I think that now, in hindsight, I can write a more "balanced" review for this album. This album is good, and it seems that ELO spent a lot of time recording it. The songs are not very complicated. Basically, the songs are good Pop Rock songs with very good arrangements.
Sometimes the arrangements are excellent. So this album has a lot of quality in arrangements, but some songs are not very good. Jeff Lynne, IMO, was now with a clear objective in his mind: to release commercial songs, with very good arrangements, but with radio playing in mind.
The best songs in this album, IMO, are: "Rockaria! In conclusion, this album has a lot of quality, and it deserves the popularity it has. So, as I gave to "Balance of Power" 3 stars, I give to this album 2.
A New World Record was the last release that showed any semblance of an artistic work, as opposed to a purely commercial venture. This record is actually a bit more depressing than most casual listeners probably realize.
This is a well-known album and a favorite for many of us who came of age during the mids. Taken on its own merits though, this is a good album, although I suppose not essential. But when scrutinized carefully with the distance of time, this is also a somewhat bitter lament by Jeff Lynne about longing, but more importantly, about change.
Right from the beginning, "Tightrope" gives us strings, and an operatic chorale. It then turns into a bouncy little number, while retaining the string sounds, and some good ol' rock guitar. It ends with the same tone as the opening.
It also contains a groovy little doo-wop. Thus retaining some prog cred. It segues nicely into the violin intro for the next song. The gypsy violin gives it a bit of panache. Not just your average Top 40 here. But wait, maybe not so predictable. The strings again come in with an understated wavy effect. Then a little military drum roll just for good measure. Those are the highlights. A couple of the slower tracks are not as impressive, but stand up nonetheless.
