The last of ELO's classic trio of late-'70s releases, after1976's A NEW WORLD RECORD and 1977's OUT OF THE BLUE, 1979's DISCOVERY was also the group's last significant commercialsuccess. A bit more self-consciously experimental than the previous pair of ELO albums--"The Diary of Horace Wimp" could have come from the pen of Jeff Lynne's more musically adventurous former musical partner Roy Wood--the album also finds Lynne finally taking notice of the musical trends of the day. The hyper-prominent snare pulse, keening violins, and scratchy guitar of the opening "Shine a Little Love" marks this as ELO's disco song, though the Beatlesque harmonies of the bridge are unmistakably Lynne's. The album's big hit, "Don't Bring Me Down", couldn't be called punk, or even new wave, but the in-your-face arrangement and snarling vocals do atleast betray some hint of the more aggressive new music.

Come back ELO and keep on playing!
I have never, EVER forgiven them for "The Diary of Horace Wimp".

ELO peaked with Out of the Blue, and from there things got bad. In fact, A New World Record is probably the best album of all time.
Ordered this for the old boy.
Jeff Lynne is a living legend - a new album is due out - I think as a Jeff Lynne solo project. Discovery not one of the best IMHO but still OK. Absolutely love 'Wishing'. Have as much heat as I can give.
it ''Won,t bring me down''
Love this band (_;)
