C.A.T: Eldorado

Electric Light Orchestra – Eldorado (1974)
I know this is late, can you forgive me? So for today’s classic album I decided to pick something a little more obscure but I assure you, it’s a mighty fine album that was critical in Electric Light Orchestra’s success in the United States. Is it my favorite ELO album? I’m not sure but it’s a contender and a good place to start for anyone interested in getting into this Symphonic rock group.

Eldorado released in 1974, was ELO’s fourth album. Their first album to make use of an entire orchestra (instead of overdubbing the three string member’s parts) as well as the group’s first concept album. El Dorado tells the story of a day dreaming “Walter Mitty” like character who escapes the reality of his mundane life through his dreams. Guided by a sweeping orchestra, funky synths and all that other good stuff, Eldorado is an ambitious album and very impressive from a production standpoint.

The songs here aren’t some of ELO’s more widely known aside from maybe “Can Get It Out of My Head” (The group’s first top ten single) but they’re still very catchy and filled to the brim with just about any instrument you could dream up. It’s amazing works like this that make me wonder why Jeff Lynne isn’t a more widely known songwriter/producer. Luckily he’s well respected in most critical music circles and why not? He plays like a gazillion instruments, does all the groups vocals, orchestral arrangements and definitely shows skill as a producer, as he went on to produce albums for such artists as George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and those two Beatles singles released for the Beatles Anthology back in 1995.

It blows my mind how epic this album still sounds today and I’m yet to tire of it. Probably the only thing I don’t like is every once in awhile there’s this slow, stupid robotic voice that does brief poetry, luckily it doesn’t pop up that often. So if you ever feel like checking out ELO this is the album I recommend checking out. Excellent, melodic Pop/Rock that would make a great soundtrack. Why they didn’t use it for that animated DreamWorks movie The Road to El Dorado will forever be one of life’s many mysteries.

Favorite Tracks:“Boy Blue”, “Can’t Get it Out of My Head”, “Mister Kingdom”

  78. Needed to write you the little bit of word in order to give thanks as before with the extraordinary information you have shown above.

  79. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  83. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
