Prog Reviewer
5 stars It is, of course, the two Roxy Music albums featuring Brian Eno which are of particular interest to prog fans, and for good reason. The tension existing between Eno's eternally experimental approach and the slick, crooning glam rock stylings of Bryan Ferry creates not chaos, but a unique hybrid approach with plenty to offer. Suites such as The Bob, and Sea Breezes show the technical complexities the band could attain when they put their mind to it, whilst electrifying pop numbers like Remake/Remodel or Virginia Plain see the band members injecting fast, sharp jolts of technical wizardry and sudden, unexpected twists into warped pop formats. Easily the most prog-friendly of the three great glam rock releases of 1972 - the other two, of course, being Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and T. Rex's The Slider - Roxy Music's debut album is an essential reminder of a time when art rock could storm the charts.
Warthur | 5/5 |
