After Слово - Товарищ - Гражданская Оборона - Звездопад a fusion of orchestral, pop and rock elements over the course of four albums, Electric Light Orchestra perfected this combination on Face the Music. The result was a string of songs that had the elegance of orchestral works but retained the catchy immediacy of great pop. A good example of this style is "Evil Woman," a densely textured rocker that became a major hit for the band in The lyrics taunt a formerly vicious woman who "ain't got no one else to use" in a style reminiscent of Del Shannon, an early musical hero for songwriter Jeff Lynne.
The melody contrasts verses that hypnotically rise and fall with a constantly ascending chorus to create a tight, hook-laden song.
It seems catchy enough on paper but Electric Light Orchestra's recording of "Evil Woman" takes the song into another realm altogether: the slick arrangement deploys the group's string section in a way that most groups use their guitarists right down a string-section solo that fits where a guitar solo normally would be and fleshes out the song with gospel-styled female backing vocals and a funky clavinet riff that duels with the group's vocals during the chorus.
