clearly the most ultimate group (c. to quote a fellow ilm'r) of the 70s had several phases.
i suspect ilm is all about the more difficult early years.
still i wish to check, which was the best, you decide.
personally, i often jump from era to era depending on the day of the week, but i have a massive soft spot for time and of course eldorado (the 8 minute instrumental 'eldorado overture' on the recent reissue is worthy of massive love of its own but thats another story) above others making my own choice somewhat difficult.
oh, and, there is the argument that eldorado should be included in phase 1, but hey.
|phase 2 : the golden era - eldorado / face the music / a new world record / out of the blue / discovery||24|
|phase 1 : the lo-fi prog-esque years - no answer / elo 2 / on the 3rd day||3|
|phase 3 : electro pop vs beatles love vs 80s production : time / secret messages / balance of power||1|
