Electric Light Orchestra (ELO): A New World Record (1976)
One of my best friends in high school was a huge ELO fan, and I never really could figure out why. I have tried to like them, but the best I can say about them is that some of their songs are OK -- not great, just OK. This record, in fact, is OK, if you know what I mean, and maybe better than some of their other records. I think it is highly regarded among fans, and I can understand why. Tightrope and Telegraph Line are OK tunes. So, if you like music that is just OK, this might be the ticket.
