Product Description

Limited clear vinyl LP pressing. Time is the ninth studio album by English rock band Electric Light Orchestra (credited as ELO), released in 1981. It topped the UK Albums Chart for two weeks. Time is a concept album written about a man from the 1980s who is taken to the year 2095, where he is confronted by the dichotomy between technological advancement and a longing for past romance. As a work of synthpop, Time signaled a departure from the band's sound by emphasizing electronics over it's usual orchestra. It is also the band's second concept album, the first being Eldorado in 1974. According to the book The Time Traveler's Almanac, Time is the first major concept album devoted entirely to time travel. In later years, the album attracted a cult following from those interested in retro-futurism, becoming the subject of admiration for some popular musicians.

HMVレビューで今作の説明はほぼなされているが...

投稿日:2008/12/03 (水)

HMVレビューで今作の説明はほぼなされているが、正直、「きらびやかさ」とか回り舞台のような「目まぐるしさ」の無いELOの音は、持続して聴けない。 作中、M1〜M2だけが従来路線のバツグンの出来で、後の印象はいまひとつ。 今作と次作の方が好みというリスナーが存在するのは承知だが、個人的には、音揺れなど(*M1とM2の間にさえ存在する)、作りの荒さの方が耳につく。
