Jeff Lynne’s ELO - From Out of Nowhere

“You can never change, You just keep on being you”, Jeff Lynn sings on “Help Yourself” and I am wondering if that’s self-reflection in any form, since his output with the “Orchestra” has been sporadic in the past few decades, yet no matter what the sleeves say, the musical style remains consistent and immediately recognizable. It gives a sense of continuation of a uniform flow, no matter how many years may have passed.
 

Eloy

How did the process of this album differ in relation to the first, if at all and how do you feel now that it’s done?
