Search The File Cabinet of Verbal Diarrhea

If there's one thing that Disqo Disco and I can agree on, it's the fact that ELO's "Discovery" is a very under appreciated album. How can you not like this song:

True, "Discovery" is not their best ("Eldorado" and "A New World Record" for the win), but I've always been a believer that anything Jeff Lynne touches has a little magic behind it. Yes, even "Secret Messages" and "Balance of Power". Seriously. Those records were both victims of really bad and cliched 80s production techniques. If you strip away the weak keys and the fake saxophones, there are actually some good songs there.

Coming soon: My thesis on the brilliance of 1981's "Time".
