I am certain I came to know Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark because of John Hughes. (The song was If You Leave from this scene in Pretty in Pink to be specific.) I dug that song enough to try out The Pacific Age.
It’s not an even album, but it has some very good moments. I also loved looking at the album cover. It was like an ESPRIT or Forenza advert.
Got this cut-out on vinyl, sealed for $4.99 which may indicate how valuable this record has held up over time.
