Electric Light Orchestra’s Discovery is as captivating as it is entertaining, making it the perfect first album on your road trip playlist. I first heard this record in high school, when I was sifting through my father’s old records in search of something new to listen to. It wasn’t long before I found myself just sitting in front of a speaker, enthralled by the dreamy sound of ELO.


This album boasts a variety of sounds, tempo, and genres now absent from records. I can almost guarantee you will find at least one song on this record is an instant fave. There’s never a dull moment on Discovery making it a pleasure to listen to from start to finish. It’s not unlikely that you’ve heard Electric Light Orchestra before. Their music has graced the silver screen on multiple occasions, the latest of note being in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Their songs are complex yet easy to sing along to. The perfect way to kick off your road trip, or day for that matter.
