5.0 out of 5 stars An Often Overlooked ELO-Classic, 5 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Secret Messages (Audio CD)
Secret Messages is a great album with fine melodies, beautiful harmonies and a pleasurable dose of good old Rock'N'Roll. As on 1981's Time strings are hardly to be heard anywhere except on 'Stranger', one of the true gems of this album. Other highlights, for me anyway, are the driving 'Danger Ahead', a rocker that should had been the first single instead of 'Rock'N'Roll Is King' and features one of the most thrilling choruses ever, the beautiful 'Bluebird' which comes with relatively sparse instrumentation as well as the brillant 50's rock'n'roll hommage 'Endless Lies' included as a bonus track. It's quite difficult to explain why this timeless, classic techno-pop-rock brew lacks the recognition the 1981 predecessor Time has got. At this price a must buy for any fan of timeless pop music.

I remember Danger Ahead being played on Radio 1 a lot before the album came out. As you say why was it not released as a single? Mystery to me.
