About this album

” Eldorado is the first complete ELO concept album; vocalist Jeff Lynne conceived the storyline before he wrote any music. The plot follows a Walter Mitty-like character who journeys into fantasy worlds via dreams, to escape the disillusionment of his mundane reality. Lynne began to write the album in response to criticisms from his father, a classical music lover, who said that Electric Light Orchestra’s repertoire “had no tune”. The influence of the Beatles is prevalent, especially in the melody of the verse of “Mister Kingdom” which resembles the Beatles’ “Across the Universe”.

    Absolutely their best - by far! This album will never be anything but a masterpiece - 40 years strong and this sounds amazing. How to rank afterwards, though? Do I put On The Third Day next, or A New World Record? Maybe ELO 1 (Kuiuma is my favorite ELO song).

    My Gran bought this as a present for my Dad becuase it had the word Orchestra in the title and she thought it was classical music! Best mistake ever.
