5 stars The music Roxy Music makes is a weird combination and is very hard to describe. Brian Ferry sounds like a cabaret singer in a Berlin night club, from around 1930. His style of singing gives most songs a melancholic and decadent sound, bordering on glam-rock. On ROXY MUSIC this is combined with a lot of strange electronic noises made by Brian Eno. The songs are unpredictable and have a raw edge to them. They also know how to rock. Some punk bands point to Roxy Music as an early influence. This is the most bizarre and unpolished album they've made. Brian Ferry's soulful singing is a nice contrast to the weird music. His singing and the really catchy melodies make that the first half of ROXY MUSIC is reasonably accessible. Most of the people like the first five songs and dislike the rest, because of too much experimentation. I do not agree. All of the songs manage to keep me interested. The second half is more avant-garde than art-rock. You need to have a tolerance for dissonance and weirdness to appreciate it. I can understand not everybody likes that. Still the music is so original and daring, that it really deserves five stars!
