******
...super...
******
It's ELO and it rocks - for ever!
******
Das fägt wie verruckt....
******
sehr gut
******
Für mich eine ihrer perfekten Nummern, das hätten die Beatles nicht besser gekonnt. # 13 in den USA 1978.
*****
Single von 1977 - in Grossbritannien eher einer ihrer kleineren Hits (nicht in der Top 10). Fäget zwar, gehört aber nicht zu ihren besten Songs, daher keine 6.
******
Echt stark!
**
Not one of their best...
******
wunderschön
******
... für mich sind's bei ELO eben nicht die vermeintlichen "Klassiker ", die einem den Atem nehmen ...
*****
Hit 7 in Reihe in NL..... November 1977.... Platz # 11 in NL
*****
sehr gut
******
F*CKI*G WELTKLASSE, FETZT!!!
*****
Wow! Ein Wunder - gefällt sogar mir. Obwohl musikalisch eigentlich mal wieder nix hochstehendes von ihnen.
*****
Da gibt's nix zu meckern.
*****
Cooler Song, einer meiner ELO-Favoriten
******
Richtig schön laut gehört! Macht Spaß!
*****
Alles perfekt, Gesang, Melodie usw. Aber mir fehlt noch der persönliche Bezug dazu. Höre ich sehr gerne.
******
Very good song.
*****
Da kann ich LarkCGN wieder mal nur zustimmen. Wieder so ein Song mit Aha-Effekt, denn natürlich kannte ich den Song schon, aber eben: den Namen zur Melodie...für mich eine gute 5.
******
Ein typischer, qualitativ höchstwertiger ELO-Hit!
****
Tut mir leid, mich überzeugt der Song nicht so recht. Zwar rockt er kräftig vor sich hin, aber - meiner bescheidenen Meinung nach - wenig originell. Aus Respekt vor dem alten Hit noch gerade so knappste 5*.

Edit: Ich korrigiere nach unten - 4 Sterne.

Is n'Feger, klarer Fall!
******
Flott, macht gute Laune. Ziemlich gut!
edit: Aufgewertet 4 -> 5. ?
edit: 5* -> 6*, vermutlich ihr bester
Last edited: 10.06.2009 15:04
******
Wieder mal typisch ELO. Auch wenn's nicht 100%ig mein Musikstil ist: So müssen ELO für mich klingen und so mag ich's auch (meistens)!
******
No Discofox-ELO rocks!!! Geht absolut gut ab!
*****
guter song, kann ich mir zwischendurch mal anhören! während den strophen tolle gitarren!
*****
gut
*****
gut
*****
unverkennbarer jeff lynne sound..
*****
Die erste Singleauskopplung aus dem Superalbum "Out Of The Blue". Wie gut dieses Doppelalbum ist, zeigt die Tatsache, daß das kraftvolle "Turn To Stone" noch nicht einmal der stärkste Song darauf ist.
*****
that's E.L.O, typisches Lied, echt gut
*****
Wirklich ein klasse Opener ihres Albums "Out Of The Blue". Wartet mit einem knackigen Drive sowie schönen Harmonien und Melodien auf.
*****
Ja der hier ist wirklich nicht übel.
*****
Sehr schöner Opener.
#13 in den USA, #17 in AUS, #18 in GB und #32 in D
******
War ebenfalls auf der ELO-Kassete meiner Eltern drauf, die wir neben den "Pretty Woman" Soundtrack, Cher und Roland Kaiser immer auf der langen Autofahrt in den Österreich Urlaub gehört haben. Hach, waren das schöne Zeiten!

Ach ja, geiler Song!!!
*****
Echt guter Sound
*****
Sehr gut gelungene 77er Single von LP "Out of the blue"
******
Sehr starker Hit von E.L.O....
******
Wieder einer meiner Favoriten...
*****
Ausgezeichneter, fetziger Opener von "Out Of The Blue". Nahe an 6*.
****
nicht schlecht, gehört aber nicht zu meinen fav's der jungs...
*****
Nicht mein Favorit aus OOTB, aber gute Pop-Nummer mit ersten Wilbruy-Riffs
*****
sehr gut
*****
Gut.
*****
... toller Song, erinnert tatsächlich irgendwie an die BeeGees, der Falsett-Stimme wegen sicher ...
*****
...starke Nummer...
******
Schön
******
Sackstark
******
Feines Spitzenwerk von der Out-LP
*****
Auch das ein sicherer Klassiker von ELO
*****
Klare 5 Sterne.

Hervorragend, als Intro dieses "Fade In" zu verwenden...
*****
erinnert fast schon etwas an Queen
*****
Flotter Opener und Vorab-Single von "Out of the Blue". Im Dez 77 blieb es in D allerdings bei einem bescheidenen # 32.
*****
5 dank Papas Musiksammlung :)
******
▒ Voortreffelijke plaat van "ELO" uit november 1977 (Holland) !!! Jammer dat het géén Top 10 hit is geweest voor de heren, december 1977 !!! Leuk om de plaat terug te horen op Radio 2 bij de Top 2000 van dit jaar, op # 1842 !!! (NL Top 40: 7 wk / # 11) ☺!!!
******
flotte "Disconummer" und das mit Orchester (Streicher)!
Musik der damaligen Zeit, beeinflusst durch Bee Gees (Gesang) und durch Queen

habe noch Alan Parsons Project vergessen, der Anfang ähnelt doch Hyper-Gamma-Spaces [1978]

ganz nett
***
Geht so.
*****
Het symphonische geweld is dienstbaar aan de melodie. Dat was wel eens anders. Dit nummer staat nog altijd.
***
Aardig plaatje van de 'ELO'.
*****
Sehr gut
*****
Gut.
*****
Kann mich nicht so 100%ig begeistern, da viel zu pompös und symphoniehaftig.
Fast ein bisschen à la Queens "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Ja aber ... hier geht die Post richtig ab!
**
schwach
*****
aufgeweckter ELO-Titel aus 1977 mit überaus nostalgischem Touch - 4.5 (knapp aufgerundet auf 5*)...
******
In mijn ogen één van de beste songs van ELO, deze 'Turn to stone' uit het album 'Out of the blue' (1977).
*****
Schöner oldie aus den 70ern
*****
War die erste Singleauskoppelung aus 'Out Of The Blue' und hat mich damals nach den tollen Singles aus der Vorgänger-LP 'A New World Record' zunächst etwas enttäuscht. Aber hat mir dann immer besser gefallen.
****
De 1e single van het beroemde album Out of the blue. Dik 4 sterren.
*****
sehr guter Song
*****
... sehr gut ...
*****
Mit Vollgas geht's gleich los - cooler Song, tönt jedoch aus heutiger Sicht doch bereits etwas "angestaubt"
*****
alweer zo'n voortreffelijk nummer van ELO.
*****
Die Strophen: sehr stark
Der Refrain: sehr dürftig
Ergibt: 5-
****
Fetzig und belebend trotz des eigentlich sehnsüchtig deprimierenden Inhalts. 4++++++
*****
Sehr gut.
***
Uff, na dann werte ich mal ab. Klingt für mich nicht gerade nach einem musikalischen Meisterwerk...
*****
Poprock mit leichtem Disco-Touch, so was kommt immer gut :) Besonders der Refrain ist große klasse! Der Mittelteil erinnert mich an Queen ("Bohemian rhapsody")!
******
6/6
*
Bagger
*****
hey, Patrick7781, if you bagger on, you'll soon turn to stone! XD
*****
Heerlijke song van ELO.
*****
Bra låt av ELO. 5+
******
Super groupe.
******
...Hier wieder ELO mit nem Hammersong...
******
Da hauen sie nochmals einen raus.
******
ELO waren wahnsinnig genial in den guten alten 70ern - zwischen Mainstream und Exprimentellem machten die eigentlich alles - hauptsache, es war bombastisch, wie Turn to Stone :)

Beatles goes Star Wars :)
**
Peaked at #17 in Australia, 1977.

stark
