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 rockpop 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. Face the Music - Electric Light Orchestra.

ELO's fifth studio LP was released in 1975 see 1975 in music and the first to be recorded in Musicland Studios Munich. The band featured yet another new line-up with bassist Kelly Groucutt and cellist Melvyn Gale replacing Mike de Albuquerque and Mike Edwards respectively. 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 the band, as on Strange Magic. The soulful Evil Woman was one of the most respectable chart hits of its era, and one of the best songs that Lynne ever wrote reportedly in 30 minutes, while Strange Magic showed off his writing in a more ethereal vein.
