The several Jeff Lynne tracks on this release are very similar to everything he was producing at this point, in particular the "Discovery" album. Keyboards have for the most part replaced the cellos and violin, but the classic Jeff Lynne sound is in tact with amazing vocals and incredibly catchy music, the kind of stuff that sticks in your head and you find yourself constantly humming. "Don't Walk Away" stands out as a killer track, but really if you love Jeff then you MUST include this in your collection.
As for the non-Jeff Lynne stuff....well, that's not really the point is it?

A stunning showcase of production work from Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Just like Abba's "Super Trouper", Xanadu is an album with a rock solid repertoire. The record contains many hits from Electric Light Orchestra and Olivia Newton John.
Olivia gave us "Magic", "Suspended in time", "Suddenly" with Cliff Richard, and the albums best offering "Xanadu". Olivia in combination with The Tubes, swirled together the 1940's cabaret sound of the Andrews Sisters Song "Forget about the Blues", with the electrifying early eighties sound of "Dancin", performed by the Tubes. The mix Jells like dynamite and gives both tracks a whole new sparkle. Jeff Lynne's contribution gave this album it's unique sound, that makes this soundtrack an unforgettable classic. Tracks like "I'm alive", "the fall", "Don't walk away", and "All around the world" were recorded by Electric Light Orchestra.
If I could only take ten albums to a desert island, this would be one of them

One star isn't for the soundtrack itself, it's for the quality of the packaging. I was hoping that by buying a re-mastered import I'd get a little something in the liner notes. There ARE no liner notes, no lyrics, just a single sheet of flimsy paper with the song titles on it. Buy the domestic; even if it's the same stuff it's nearly 10 bucks cheaper.

The movie that this soundtrack is from bombed at the box office in 1980 and sucked big time! But, the combination of the song Xanadu and Olivia together was "MAGIC". Olivia's vocals are absolutely breathtaking, and I still remember back in 1980 when she went on the t.v. show, "Solid Gold", and was singing some of the songs off of this album, including "Suspended", which at one point during the show while she was singing it, tears started coming down her face (she must have been relating to something in the lyrics to this song). Go ahead and get this, you will love it!

Not only is this Soundtrack great, but the movie is too. It was made before I was born and I have never understood the terrible reviews it was given. The music is energetic and inspiring and all the things people complain about, the rollerskates, disco, Olivia Newton-John, ELO, the special effects, are great. It's kind of odd like The Rocky Horror Picture Show. But alot more family friendly.

Xanadu did exactly what it was supposed to do - entertain and make you imagine what it would be like to have a muse like Olivia breathe life into your dreams and have a sugar-daddy like Gene finance them! This movie was not supposed to provoke political though, cure world-hunger or make you a better person. It was created to make you dream, for your mind to be mesmerized by the colors, the music and the beauty of its entirety. The music was great, the plot was cute, and while today many might laugh at the roller-boogie of the last scene, it takes me back to my high school years where going to the rink was THE thing to do! Thank you Olivia, Gene and ELO for making a movie and music that I still enjoy to this day!!!!!

Well dispite what the other main review might say this movie and/or soundtrack is not ridiculous. Honestly at the time of its release it was in fact a bomb but it in fact is an amazing movie. I saw this movie for the first time at a young age and I have adored it ever since. I find it to be highly underestimated but I also understand that it takes an intelligent person to find and pinpoint the greatness factor of this film. Actually I would like to get a hold of the the guy who rated it badly and called it ridiculous and show him a thing or two, he must be a typical, uncultured moron. Olivia looks fabulous in this movie and yes there are cheesy scenes but that is not what makes it so great. Also all of the amazing music, dance and style. This movie is full of every dance type and music type imaginable and also is full of life and it is one of those movies that just makes you feel great.Anyone who can't appriciate this movie at least theatrically speaking is just a fat lazy computer nerd that likes to see his name on a review on amazon.com because makes him feel better about the fact that he sucks...and by the way the little girl who watched this movie and was dazzled by it growing up is now a sophisticated actress whom you have probably seen in a musical or a movie. So are you going to take his word or mine. :)

Electric Light Orchestra has written more than just one song on this wonderful soundtrack, I'm Alive, Don't Walk Away and All over the World there is one song that is not listed and i am totally surprised the song is love (won't take a backseat tonight) which was done in the movie by ELO themselves, and yes that is ELO in the movie when they are in Xanadu and dreaming of the bands, the rock band you see is in fact ELO in full makeup, ELO has been around for years and doesn't seem to get the same credit as Olivia Newton-John nor does ONJ's sister Juice Newton, yes that's right Juice Newton and olivia are sisters, i do recommend that you go out and buy the dvd or video if you don't have it of xanadu, and while your shopping search for juice newton's song "Queen of Hearts" you won't regret it, and to ELO your credit on this album no matter what the others say is perfecto, good show and keep up the beautiful work.
