3 stars Yes this album for me was the peak of ELO's creativity. ' Discovery' may well be their most commercial album of all but dare I say it this has in my opinion the best overall delivery out of all their 75-80 era releases. I would probaly give this a true four star rating but it definitely is NOT an excellent addition to the average prog collection. It does though warrant a solid 3.5 stars because of the quality of each and every track on the album, even the disco beat ( sorry folks) that thematically runs through ' Discovery'. ' Shine a Little Love' for me is the best song on the album and the title track, "Lost Train To London' and ' The Diary of Horace Wimp' are also fine tunes. You cannot escape the 10cc similarities in parts either.
