My all-time favorite has to be A NEW WORLD RECORD.

OUT OF THE BLUE is a really close second.

Well, since I grew up on the Traveling Wilburys, I'm more into Jeff Lynne as a producer and solo artist than his 70s and early 80s phase with ELO. I don't even have copies of those old ELO albums. A compilation does the trick for me.

I'm undecided if my fave is the Wilburys' Vol.1, Vol.3 or Zoom.

Production-wise, it's either Into the Great Wide Open, Rock On Del Shannon or Cloud Nine.


Title: Gotta go with "Time"
Post by: oregonbri on Oct 22, 2006, 08:56
I think it's the most complete ELO album, as every song is great and the concept is solid. I think of it as the sequel to "Eldorado," complete with the instrumental leading into the best track and a solid theme throughout. After that, I'd rank the albums thusly:

  2.) "Out of the Blue"
  3.) "Eldorado"
  4.) "Secret Messages"
  5.) "A New World Record"
  6.) "Discovery"
  7.) "Balance of Power"
  8.) "On the Third Day"
  9.) "Face the Music"

  That's all I've heard. I still need to get "Zoom" and "Armchair Theater," as well as the first disc and the live stuff.

the ultimate album in my opinion has to be out of the blue!

The best album is yet to come! If Jeff pulls his finger out and buries the hatchet with Bev and who knows even Roy Wood and what about having that Nutty cello player Mike Edwards back complete with grapefriut balaclava and exploding Cello    Hold On Tight to your Dreams!

To hard to choose really. However, for various sentimental reasons  Discovery & Time are the albums I listen to the most.

Balance Of Power is a really good album for its time and I think is underappreciated. I read Jeff actually likes this album and rates it as one of favourites!

1 - Zoom (Great tracks - especially A Long Time Gone!)
2 - OOTB (Great album, loved the spaceship)
3 - Eldorado (The great big orchestra theme and concept album idea were cool)
4 - FTM (Favourite track ever - Evil Woman! It's excellent!)


Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)
Post by: Kajman on Aug 20, 2008, 09:44

Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)

Zoom and Armchair Theatre and Wilburys I.  I much prefer the later Jeff Lynne Music.

My all-time favorite has to be A NEW WORLD RECORD.

OUT OF THE BLUE is a really close second.

I would have to agree...!


Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)
Post by: Russ on Jan 08, 2009, 08:40
I'm going for Discovery & A new world record.
With the more recent stuff I think the music on Armchair Theatre is more memorable than what Jeff did with Zoom. Maybe it's the production that's different, but I felt it was an album that could have sounded better with some more of his trademark keyboard sounds or similar subtle touches. I prefer the type of production that was used with Secret Messages & all those brilliant little guitar bits that he used.

Oh my, difficult question. But... I'd have to say:

1. Eldorado- those beautiful, dreamy songs!

2. Secret Messages- love "Bluebird"

3. Time- great story.

My favourite album has to be Time. Every song on it is brilliant especially with the volume turned up.
Out of the Blue is also right up there but unfortunately the album contains the only two Elo songs that i don't care for--Jungle and Birmingham Blues.
Looking forward to the new album--does anyone know when it's being released ?

On The Third Day.  Not as raw as the second album but not too polished like later ones

Here are my fave albums, including the ELO Part 2 stuff, from fave to least fave:

7) Armchair Theatre
8. No Rewind (The Orchestra)
9) Secret Messages

Thats such a hard one for me...recently become a ELO fan and loving all the albums...
guess if I had to pick I will go with TIME.....


Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)
Post by: Brewy on May 29, 2010, 03:24
Very obvious to pick Out of the Blue, so for a real feel of the target decade, it must be Time.


Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)
Post by: hombrisimo on Jun 13, 2010, 01:08
Mine would have to be "On The Third Day"  at least side one.


Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)
Post by: WildWestHero62 on Feb 28, 2012, 01:39
Mine is "Out Of The Blue"!


Title: Re: What is your favorite Elo album( Armchair Theatre included)
Post by: BOY BLUE on Apr 07, 2012, 09:29
Very hard to answer this question, but I'd have to say all of them ( I know that's a really lame answer ) except Discovery. It was ok but just didn't move me as much as the others.

Ok new Fan here in your forum Hallo to all ELO fans. I am one of the old (ahem very old) ELO fans,

so I go for A new World Record though! As well Eldorado was a masterpiece, closely followed by Out of the blue and Face the music.

Greetings to all the ELO fans from Dublin Ireland!
