Time is the ninth studio album by English rock band Electric Light Orchestra (credited as ELO). It was released in July 1981 by Jet Records in the United Kingdom and in August 1981 by Columbia Records in the United States. It topped the UK Albums Chart for two weeks. Time is a concept album written about a man from the 1980s who is taken to the year 2095, where he is confronted by the dichotomy between technological advancement and a longing for past romance. [6]

The record attracted a cult following of retrofuturist enthusiasts. It is considered the first major concept album devoted to time travel as well as ELO's most influential album. "Twilight" became popularly known for its use in the 1983 animated short Daicon IV Opening Animation . In 2001, a CD reissue of Time included three additional tracks that were originally left off the LP.

ELO recorded Time mainly at Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany, [3] with some sessions taking place at Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. [ citation needed ] Three additional songs written in the album's context were recorded, but left off the release: "Bouncer", "When Time Stood Still" and "Julie Don’t Live Here". These songs were instead issued as B-sides of later singles. [1]

I first became aware of Shelby Lynne when Reba McEntire predicted that she would be country music’s next big female superstar, during a 1990 appearance on Larry King Live . After hearing Shelby’s music for the first time shortly thereafter, my impression was that she definitely had promise but her material fell considerably short of her talent. Twenty-five years later my musical tastes have evolved so that I can appreciate her material a little more, but my overall assessment remains the same.

With the exception of “I Walk The Line”, these songs are all very good but they underscore that Lynne had not yet discovered her musical direction (it could be argued that she still hasn’t) and that Epic had no idea whatsoever how to market her. It’s the sort of album that I wasn’t particularly interested in back in 1990 but it would be a huge improvement if Nashville were to release more in this vein today.
