I discovered ELO in the late 70s. My first album was of course "out of the blue". I bought the disc because of the cover. The music I did not like at first very much. Hear after several had the ELO-virus detected in me....

Unique band with a unique sound. Hard to find fault with their catchy pop style. Particularly like Standin' in the rain.

Great progressive pop band, especially in their orchestral heyday. But why are their two best albums, A New World’s Record and Face the Music, ranked #4 and #6, respectively, on this site? Records like Time and Discovery aren’t terrible but were definitely produced on the way down the slope.

Agree that they aren't worth half a chart.. unless the chart is limited to 24 of course!

Big sound, ambitious writing... but a little over-the-top for me sometimes. They're OK, but not worth half a chart...
