One of the things that made OMD's Architecture and Morality so good is that they used the Mellotron a lot.
In hindsight it has given that synth-pop album a more timeless shine than other albums from that same era.
You're right. It can be used in all kinds of music.
It's too bad Mellotron was almost completely obscure in 80s. I really appreciate those few artist who were bold enough to use it when everyone else used synthesizers and drum machines only.
Actually I've been thining to make a synth album myself. Just good old synth sounds nothing else but maybe I give Mellotron a shot. It could give it some nice edge.
