"Avalon" is one of my favorite albums. Phil Manzanera's guitar is what makes it for me. Phil's album "Guitarissimo" is recommended if you like his stuff. Ever heard Brian Ferry's cover of "Jealous Guy"? So cool.
There are no other Roxy Music albums that sound like this. If you like this, then go for Bryan Ferry's 80s solo albums (Boys And Girls, Bête Noire, and some of the 90s stuff, too, also, his new album Olympia sounds a bit like this)
Their early stuff is their best, though, in my opinion ;)
Hey guys, I'm quite new to Roxy Music, I've only listened to this and Bryan Ferry's 20 Great Hits album, so are there other Roxy Music albums that sound like this, because this is very different from all their '70s songs I've heard.
Shipwrecked on an island, and only one LP/CD/MP3 to listen to... This is my stupid Choice, Don`t know why.Didn`t like it that much when it first came out. Don`t Like the remixes (Somehow they took some of the soul out of the tracks) But over time this album grew on me like a second skin. There are no tracks I don`t like on this album.This music transports me somewhere else every time I listen to it . I love this CD ,well the original recording anyway, MORE than ANYTHING else that I have EVER listened to ! And that is quite a staement I used to own 900 Lp`s back in the day ,Nearly 400 Tapes and almost 1000 Cd`s ! ! ! I AM a music junkie and I am Addicted to this CD In particular...NEED THEROPY !!!
Mit der Gefahr hin, dass ich viele Roxy-Fans ärgere.
Dieses ist das Beste Album und ich wiederhole mich, unglaublich gut !!!!!! War auch die Endzeit von den eigentlichen Stil von Roxy Music. Das ist nur noch Bryan Ferry good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
