3 stars Roxy Music's second album tones down the abrasiveness that permeated their debut, and tightened up their sound a bit, making this a bridge between that first album, and the smoother glam band that they became.

Songs like Do The Strand and Editions Of You have that proto-punk feel that Eno ran with on his first album, Here Come The Warm Jets. There are some other good moments, such as the inelegant humor of In Every Dream Home A Heartache and the eerieness of The Bogus Man.

But what limits the album is that at this point in his career, Bryan Ferry was an awful singer. He alternates between singing off key and over emoting in a style like a failed cabaret singer. But despite his voice, the rest of the band makes this an intriguing piece of art rock.

Evolver | 3/5 |
