Electric Light Orchestra - Eldorado
I think this one more than any other ELO album features the orchestra as a core part of the band and music. They live up to their name here. Pop music utilizing orchestral instruments. Big thanks to the Beatles, I suppose, is due...or at least George Martin. Each progressive ELO album after this seems to use the Orchestra less and less as the main structure of the songs, but more for accents. I'm pretty sure they abandonded the Orchestra all together by the end of their run. Anyway, it's in full effect here. Lots of sounds. Good stuff.
