Default Electric Light Orchestra

hey hey, are this band any good or appalling? plz let me know, i've been asked to check them out by a friend but can't be arsed to wade through their records unless it's actually worth my while.

If there's already a thread on'em then soz. It didn't come up in the search and neither did "ELO" as it's only 3 letters.

I personally love them but I grew up with them. I suppose they can be called a bombastic pop rock band. Give them a listen on utube. Try the tracks:

Telephone Line
Strange Magic
Rockaria!
Evil Woman
Sweet Talkin' Woman

My favourite album is Discovery. Most of their output after 1981 was below par.

I think their best album is "Time" released in 1981.

ELO is a fantastic listen, Evil Woman and Livin' Thing are my favorite songs.

They are good, like hairy 70's pop rock... my favs are mr. blue sky, showdown, telephone line, and tightrope.
