    This review contains spoilers. This is a Jeff Lynne masterpiece. I am on my third run through non stop and it is pure genius, a delight to sing along to real classics with that ELO lilt. I have not listened to an cd for so long that I want to play again and again. At last ive found a new one. thx Jeff Collapse

    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]
