They have some good songs on other albums as well but if you don't feel like wading through all of their discography to find them and you have spotify, I've put together a "best of" playlist (ISM and Z feature I think almost in their entirety).

Best of luck with your exams, I'm sure you'll pass 'em all with Flying Colours.

Oh, which reminds me...



and if you like that try some Neal Morse



and then top it all off with some Spock's Beard, going back to the source...
Thank you very much!!!
By the way, what do you think about Emerson, Lake and Palmer? I haven't heard anything from them. Were they a good band?
P.S. My opinion about Out Of The Blue by ELO:

Oh, OK, thanks, I've just saved the playlist.

I'm not a fan of ELP (Emerson Lake and Palmer) I have to admit; Neapolitan is your man there. If you like a mixture of rock and classical with some blues, then you may enjoy them. I believe a very high percentage of their music is instrumental, though I'm no expert on them, but I think that's how they rolled. As I go through the history of prog rock in my journal my opinion of them may change - I didn't hate their debut which I recently reviewed - but I don't think I would ever be a fan of theirs.

Delighted to hear you loved Out of the Blue - fantastic album and a real classic. For a slightly more modern ELO try these:

2 more albums and ELO will become one of the bands I'm gonna listen to the most this year lol
All 4 songs were sooo good. Twilight and Calling America were the best ones imo

P.S. Idk if I'm going crazy or something lol but i'm listening to "Femme Fatale" by the Velvet Underground VERY oftenly during these weeks. I'm not sure 'bout the rest of the album yet but that song is:
Now you may say that that's not true and that I should focus on the whole album bla bla bla but that's my way of enjoying it

That's perfectly valid. Femme Fatale is an amazing song, one of my favourites on the album

Hey ER, since you like "Femme Fatale" I wonder what you would think of Nico's first solo album. Nico's subsequent albums are darker, but Chelsea Girls is more melodic and chamber-folky. "These Days" is one of my favorite songs of all time.

OK, thank you!
By the way, I like the song you posted.

A lot of people will concentrate on one or two favourite songs from albums and never listen to the rest. It's no crime. Listen to what you enjoy. The only thing I would say is that if you like a song by a band you may - not always the case but you may - like others on the album. Of course, it also happens that that song may be the best/only good song on the album, and listening to the album then disappoints you. Entirely up to you: again, I'm no VU fan. No ma'am, not me.

As far as ELO goes, in order I feel the best albums are:
Out of the Blue
El Dorado
Time
Discovery
A New World Record
Secret Messages
Face the Music
Zoom
Xanadu (split with Olivia Newton-John, otherwise it would be higher, but still worth listening to).

(I can't remember/am too lazy/busy to check if I already posted some of these, so bear with me if so)

Spoiler for ELO tracks:

C'mon, TH - you know you love the VU. Let's sing along together their #1 hit, "Heroin": "IIIIIIIIII have made, the big decision. IIIIIIII'm gonna try TO NULLIFY MY LIFE!"

Nothing like a good singalong to lift our spirits.

I must be a very strange person because my two favorite bands are The Beatles and The Velvet Underground.
