My Favourite ELO Album... Some of the album tracks are immense. I Love the full on production of 'Shangri-la' and the simplicity of 'Above the Clouds' the Rockin Guitar and Faux Opera in 'Rockaria', the Strings of 'Livin' Thing' and the rocking re-work of 'Do Ya!' Quality album give it a listen.
While the two preceding ELO albums, Discovery and Xanadu, were heavily influenced by pop and disco, Time is much closer to ELO's roots of progressive rock music. Songs like "Ticket To The Moon", "The Way Life's Meant to Be", "Rain Is Falling", and "21st Century Man" are reminiscent of material from the A New World Record through Out Of The Blue era of ELO, while other tracks explore new influences such as New Wave.
