AllMusic Review by

As a companion piece to 2005's All Over the World: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra, the Very Best of ELO, Vol. 2: Ticket to the Moon pretty much completes the frame-worthy picture of Jeff Lynne's sci-fi/pop mothership. There's still a lot unaccounted for, specifically from the first three records, but between the two collections you would be hard pressed to find a better complete anthology without resorting to a box set like 1990s Afterglow. The obvious hits like "Do Ya," "Calling America," "Twilight," and "Can't Get It out of My Head" are great, but it's the deeper cuts such as "Starlight," "Eldorado," "Secret Messages," and the impossibly dark and catchy "Surrender" that make this second volume of ELO confections so tasty.
