    Long Wave seems like great fun for Jeff Lynne, less so for the rest of us. [Dec 2012, p.111]

    Although original material would have been welcome, Long Wave proves that every song can be an ELO song if it really tries hard enough.

    Easy on the ear yet never sugary, full and layered yet never stodgy, intricately assembled yet never fussy, pulsing with a Ringo beat yet never monotonous. [Nov 2012, p.91]
