3 stars Released in 1975 Siren is the fifth full-length studio album by UK pop/ rock act Roxy Music. The lineup is unchanged since the albums predecessor Country Life (1974) and the style that was played on that album is very much carried on.

The album starts with the great Love Is the Drug and practically never looks back from there. I think all songs are good and it´s great to see a bit of experimentation taking place in the first two minutes of Sentimental Fool. Something that has been lacking from Roxy Music´s sound since Brian Eno left after For Your Pleasure (1973).

The musicianship is excellent. Just enjoy that rythm section. I mean they are so tight and just great fun to listen to. The rest of the band are of course excellent musicians as well.

The production is the best sound that Roxy Music has had so far. A really good production that I enjoy greatly.

The music on Siren is sophisticated pop/ rock delivered with lots of energy and attention to detail. This is not progressive music with long instrumental sections or odd rythm patterns but it is very clever music IMO. A big 3 star rating is warranted. Together with For Your Pleasure and Country Life this album is a great representative of the early Roxy Music.
