ELO is just too awesome. Long live Jeff Lynne.

Queen is group of my childhood. Freddie Mercury and his band had made dramatical input in music history. Also they faced true popylarity among people. I guess there can't be any doubts

ELO is one of my favourite bands. And their first album is the best for me because of Roy Wood, a genius composer. The last albums are great too but they are different from the first that was a miracle.

Queen. They simply have more albums I care about and still listen to. I just was listening to the debut album in the car the other day.

ELO by (electric) light years. I was never fully sold on Queen. They do have a handful of tunes I like, but never an entire album.

Well.....I listened to the first 4 ELO albums more than I  did the first 4 Queen albums...but then they were out earlier  , both good in those days. I'll say both.....

yeah.. easy one.

ELO by .. umm... light years. LOL Though Freddie may have been the single greatest frontman ever. Unfortunately that doesn't trump all the great stuff ELO did musically.

^ I'd have to agree though I'd say Queen was a far greater rock band in terms of actual playing.

Richard Tandy laughs at that David.  By far the best pure musical talent in either group.. and sadly completly underrated for the lack of any mention in greatest keyboardists.  Bev Bevan was also one of the most respected drummers in all rock. Can say that for ..whatever his name was in Queen.  Add in all the talent that flowed through the band in the strings.. Wilf Gibson? Single greatest violin solo in all rock is to his credit. Oh no.. I'd most certainly give the collective musical talent and playing to ELO.  And that really isn't close IMO.

^ Really?   Okay, I'll accept that until I actually hear more ELO and can have a more educated opinion.  Until then I stand by it.   You and I have seen a ton of shows, I assume hundreds between us, and in concert Queen killed everyone I've ever seen except maybe U2.   Whereas ELO always seemed twee.
