5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute To A Musical Genius, October 18, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alpacas Orgling (Audio CD)
Bleu Mcaulay has recently stated in an interview that this album pays homage to the amazing talents that is Jeff Lynne.

It's obvious from start to finish that he has tried to recreat the sounds that Jeff Lynne has become well known for over several decades.

Rick Rubin also lent a helping hand speaking directly to Jeff and then advising Bleu and his mates on all those wonderful rich sound tapestry's that Jeff conjures up and how he does it.

But what a wonderful album it is.

Goodbye Innocence with the George Harrison slide guitar, could've easily fitted onto the Cloud Nine album.

Distracted very ELO-ish a wonderful melody with great harmonies.

Old College Try sounds very Mccartney to me combined with a little Lynne.

Nothing Will Ever Change is pure Jeff Lynne, with falsetto in the chorus and wonderful chord changes this could've easily been on Jeff's recent Zoom album.

Don't Let It Go again is pure Jeff Lynne. Super catchy melody, great harmonies and soundalike Jeff Lynne production.

This is actually a great album, every song is a pop gem though I wish Jeff Lynne himself had really produced it, Bleu MCaulay and his mates have made one hell of a record and appropriately a fitting tribute to one of the greatest musicians in pop history.
