I have this version with a 3D cover. I ordered it without realising it was an unofficial release.

Not Jeff's best work, but still extremely good. The songs are not really "ELO" perse, but are well-written enough to make it great.

"Dirty To The Bone" is very well-done, and reminds me of "All Over The World" in a way. The title track is very beautiful, and has that amazing keyboard lick. "When I Was A Boy" is a track that has hints of "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" sprinkled throughout. Very whimsical.

However, let's not give the album too much credit, it has its flaws. For one, the orchestral strings are rather toned down. Sometimes you can barely hear them. Some tracks can be a bit tedium, as I found "I'm Leaving You" to be a bit.

In other words, do I recommend it to an ELO fanatic like me? Yes. Would I recommend it to a person which wants to hear the ELO sound? Not quite. Would I recommend it as an album and nothing more? Absolutely. Alone In The Universe is a mixed bag, but a brilliant comeback for ELO.

This sounds amazing on vinyl. Very clear and clean and you feel like you are sitting in the room with them playing.

Vinyl is cut by Chris Bellman, sounds incredible - no comparison with the CD.

Quality doesn't come close to any other first press ELO record I own.
