  Face the Music (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Face the Music is an album by Electric Light Orchestra.
ELO's fifth LP was released in 1975 (see 1975 in music) and the first to be recorded in Musicland Studios Munich probably because audiences in their home market were still slow to warm to the band at this point, and the attitude of the classically trained musicians who performed on their album Eldorado.
This album is often regarded as a bridge between their progressive rock past and their hit making pop/rock status of the late '70s and '80s.The band featured yet another new line-up with Bassist Kelly Groucutt and Cellist Melvyn Gale replacing Michael d'Albuquerque and Mike Edwards respectively.

 Electric Light Orchestra - Face the Music (Album Review)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Part of the problem with Face the Music was that, in order to meet commercial demands, founder Jeff Lynne was stretched too thinly as he pushed himself to write new material in the brief moments of downtime in Electric Light Orchestra’s rigorous touring schedule.
Recently remastered, Electric Light Orchestra’s Face the Music has been augmented with a quartet of bonus tracks, including an instrumental arrangement of Waterfall, the edited version of Strange Magic that was released as a single, and a skeletal incarnation of Fire on High.
While Face the Music may have achieved platinum-level sales, the outing as a whole hasn’t aged well, and it also remains too uneven to be considered one of ELO’s finer efforts.
