Secret Messages songs Product Information
Secret Messages album for sale by Electric Light Orchestra was released Jun 12, 2001 on the Epic label. In the early '80s, another wave of backward-masking hysteria hit the national scene, with unfounded claims that popular rock bands intentionally hid Satanic messages in their records. Secret Messages CD music ELO had already been hit with this rumor for a song on their album ELDORADO, and on the following album's "Fire on High," Jeff Lynne deliberately placed an obvious backwards message. Because the initial prank worked so well, Lynne did not only did it again in this album's opening--the message is simply the album's title--but named the album in honor of the hysteria.

||Great underrated album|
One reviewer reported that this album did not hold a candle to ELO's 70's material, why would it have to? This wonderful album was conceived at a later period during which Jeff Lynne had continued to evolve. Unfortunate some critics cannot to the same.
By faust8577 (Lorraine, Que. Canada)
I am a big ELO/Jeff Lynne fan. I own most of ELOs 70s albums, love Xanadu, Time, and Jeff's solo CD from the early 90s. Also love the latest ELO album, Zoom. This was one that I resisted buying solely because of reviews. This proves NOT to listen to anything "music critics" say. This is just as good as any ELO album. I can't believe I slept on it for so long. Simply put, if you like ELO you will love this album.

||should have been a double cd|
jeff lynne had planned this album to be a double like out of the blue. but because of a lot of internal rows with management and base player kelly sued and left elo, this cd was always up against it. the remastered version a couple of years ago have some absolute classics. the record company made a big mistake not allowing jeff lynne go ahead with his plan. if released as a double it would have been nearly as big as out of the blue and thats a big call. there was no promotion with this cd and was the start of the end as far as jeff lynnes involvement with elo. a tragic in music, the near end of one of the best bands in the history of music. this cd deserves to be released what it was planned to be ,a double cd, the songs not released with the original is elo at their very best, simply brilliant.

||Another great ELO album|
Never was super big on Rock'n Roll is King but Secret Messages and Take Me On and On are absolute favs. Still catching myself humming half of these tracks when they just pop into my head even today.

||rock 'n roll is lynne|
jeff lynne along with bandmates have always infleunced my life. have loved them since the 70's,with those classics livin' thing/strange magic/telephoneline/rockaria. I remember going to a work dance party back in late feb.1979,heard this song pounding on the dj's speakers,' DON'T BRING ME DOWN '. I loved that song,for months I didn't know who sang it,but when I learned it was ELO. I've put them up there with the BEATLES,ZEPPLIN,and all the other classic bands. This album is one of my favs,Rock 'n roll is king/Four little Diamonds/Secret Message,now this one song was so freaky I listened to it backwards on my turntable,where jeff exclaimes WELCOME TO THE SHOW!Totally freaky,But forever love 'em.
