I really like the album. Reminds me of a holiday in Spain. we were on the transfer bus and Ordinary Dream came on the radio. I didn't know that the album was being released. said to my Mrs "This is ELO!!! " Made my holiday! Having said that "Stranger on a quiet street" is my fave track
I've not actually listened to Zoom for ages, but looking at the track list I'm surprised how hard it is to choose a favourite compared to other albums.
Having agonised between Alright, Moment in Paradise, State of Mind, Easy Money and Ordinary Dream I'm plumping for Alright. It's a really great opener, very upbeat and positive, and in my opinion it joins a group of "Track 1, Side 1" songs which are maybe overlooked as listners gallop on to the meaty bits.
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
a very good album, "stranger on a quiet street" is my favourite (but i think it would have been even better, with additional 20-30 seconds). my second vote would be "just for love", which reminds me of the secret messages album sounds.

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
