Hi I haven't been here for a while have I?
What do we think of ELO or for those of you who want to be boring Electric Light Orchestra
They are great but not fantastic by any means
My favourite ELO song is Four Little Diamonds
What about you?

Agree with bohemian777. That and "Out of the Blue". I love ELO.

Wild West Hero and Rockaria are my favourite ELO tracks. Seen them live twice and always give a good show.

ELO's awesome. Was planning on seeing them live a few years ago when they released "Zoom" but their tour got scrapped 'cos of poor ticket sales.

I have Strange Magic (complilation) as well as Time. I was bummed to find that Strange Magic does not have Fire on High, One Summers Dream, or El Dorado. I particularly like Fire on High, One Summers Dream, Livin Thing, and Mister Blue Sky

I like them and I've been meaning to buy an ELO album for ages! I love Evil Woman, Mr. Blue Sky, Turn To Stone, etc.

i went through an ELO phase in 1990.
i bought a few of their albums which i still own.
i agree with an earlier posting new world record and out of the blue are very good
time sounds a bit dated these days
i don't like discovery much anymore, some of the songs are a bit naff e.g horrace wimp

jeff lynne's solo album armchair theatre is great.

secret messages was always a weak album

but balance of power has some merit, a few good tunes such as so serious and calling america [it sounds a bit like the jeff lynne produced george harrison album, cloud nine. although cloud nine is much stronger in my opinion]


we've no ancestral halls, no haughty portraits on our walls, no family monuments at all, unless it's my cousin sheila's stupendous clevage.
