Yeah, the song title is appropriate for me too. Album releases November 1st.

I dig it.

Re: Brand new ELO album (10/1/19)

I liked ELO when I was a teenager. I still have the mylar poster from Out of the Blue. But when I checked out their greatest hits a few years ago, I thought the music was dull. I don't know how to explain it. I think the songs came across as the product of a small number of tricks assembled in different orders.

Hopefully it'll be the Xanadu follow up we've all been waiting for.

Always happy to hear more "classic" rock from music artists that came up during the 70's. Zoom and Alone in the Universe are fine albums as well.

I don't know if you're joking, but that wouldn't be a bad thing IMO. That was a great pop album.

I don't know, this sort of has a The Traveling Wilburys vibe to it. I'm one of those who prefers the original ELO of the 70's with the original band members and the sound they had then.

I agree with you. "Discovery" was ELO's last great album IMO. This new one is very similar in style to 2015's "Alone in the Universe". And yes, I can see the Traveling Wilburys comparison. It's still a very good album. It's just not as poppy or radio friendly like anything they did in the 70's. Congratulation though for it's success.
