Face the Music is the fifth studio album by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). It was released in September 1975 by United Artists Records and on 14 November 1975 in the United Kingdom by Jet Records. The album moves away from the large-scale classical orchestrated sound from the previous album, Eldorado, in favor of more "radio-friendly" rock/pop songs, though the string sections are still very prominent. The new sound proved successful for the group as Face the Music was the first ELO album to go platinum.

Electric Light Orchestra's more modest follow-up to Eldorado is a very solid album, if not as bold or unified. It was also their first recorded at Musicland in Munich, which became Jeff Lynne's preferred venue for cutting records. The sound is stripped down a bit on Face the Music, Louis Clark's orchestral contributions generally more subdued than on Eldorado, even when they compete with.

During the 1980’s in America, this record above any another drew the ire of religious fundamentalist twits who were sure backwards messages in rock-n-roll records were going to make us all go to hell. This record has backwards masking on it in a couple of places that are very clear. Track A1 has the message “The music is reversible, but time is not…turn back…turn back.” when played backwards. On side two after the song ‘Strange Magic’ and during the beginning of “Down Home Town” there is another message. Spinning the disc backwards reveals something like “catch the mighty water fall taste the mighty water fall”. Other clues that this record is for all you Satan worshipers out there, is the fact that they look possessed with red glowing eyes on the back cover. Ok Jeff, thanks for the evil tips. The dark lord is proud of you.
