In 1981 ELO came out with a masterpiece of an album. The name of the album is "Time". If you are an ELO fan you must buy this, their best work to date...

aTomiK,

This is one of those albums that you listen to, then, two weeks later the songs start popping back into your head.

I've always liked all of their earlier and later stuff too, but, this is so radically different.

It really is a masterpiece... [Big Grin]

jdocster,

I've been listening to "Time" for the best part of a week, this is a great album.

I've always loved the idea of a concept album, and this has to be one of the best ever.

I find this album to be very addictive. You'll listen to it, put it away, a month later you'll start humming as song from it. Weird huh? I wish they had done another follow-up album after this one.

Glad you like it! [Big Grin]
