Andrew Whiteside (1993 - Face The Music fanzine #16)

"The way Dave [Edmunds] and Jeff produced records had become more and more alike, as Let It Run from Electric Dreams proved."
Patrik Guttenbacher, Marc Haines, & Alexander von Petersdorff (1996 Unexpected Messages)

"Also during 1984-- and credited as a solo artist-- Jeff Lynne provided three tracks for the movie soundtrack Electric Dreams, including the single Video and the outstanding techno-rocker Let It Run."
Rob Caiger (February 26, 2007 - Balance Of Power remaster liner notes)

"In 1984, [Jeff] and Richard contributed two songs, Video! and Let It Run, to the soundtrack of the movie Electric Dreams, as well as a third song, Sooner Or Later, released as the B-side of Video!, a single which only just crept inside the top hundred chart."
John Van der Kiste (August 2015 - Jeff Lynne: Electric Light Orchestra - Before and After)
