ELO - Time
Time is a science fiction album. It has songs about falling in love with robots. It has songs about hover cars and time travelling back to the 1980s. BUT THE 1980s HADN’T HAPPENED YET! Why do you not think this is the best music made by humans? Do you not like laser guns? What is wrong with you?
