ELO with Supertramp are the most underrated bands ever, sadly

Just as much as an essential listen for music fans as anything by The Beatles, Dylan, Stones, Zeppelin, Floyd and any of the other big boys and girls - it's THAT good.

Very influential, I don't think Daft Punk would be around if not for this album. Twilight is a very fun composion, and many other tracks have a certain magic to them.

WOW, I've always considered by self to be a casual fan of ELO, but never thought that they were amazing, but this was incredible, easily their best album and possibly one of the best albums of the 80s

Listmeister AKA Micha, Time is not ELO's only concept album, 1974's Eldorado (A Symphony) was their first. 8-)

My favorite ELO record, by far. A New World Record is as tight, and Out of the Blue as inventive, but neither of them are as arresting and magical as Time.
