Three years after the release of 'All Over the World: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra' in 2005, Sony finally released the follow-up of the first compilation.
This second volume does fill the gap left by the first album nicely. If you bought the first volume and wondered where "Twilight", "Do Ya", "Can't Get It Out of My Head", and "Calling America" were, the answer is here. There are also plenty of room for the excellent album cuts such as "Four Little Diamonds", "So Serious", "Last Train to London", "Starlight", and "Surrender". Of course, 1995's 'Strange Magic: The Best of' is still the best one-set-collection for ELO. But these two volumes contain as many as 40 tracks in total - 11 more tracks than 1995's album.
If you already bought the first volume, this is a must buy to make your collection complete. But if you already own 'Strange Magic', you do not need to buy these two albums again because it also contains all the highlights - unless you want some more album cuts.
