4 stars With the passing of the years Bryan Ferry has become synonymous with Roxy Music (and vice versa), so I had to fight to make it clear to my friend that Roxy Music is not Bryan Ferry's backing band. It must be said that this was due to the fact that Bryan Ferry soloist produced the same music of Roxy. Another fault is that this compilation, a song by Roxy alternates with a solo of Bryan. This is not bad, for those who like Bryan Ferry and Roxy. However, for a neophyte is a big problem.

Musically speaking, the music is really interesting. Initially it is very Rock, becoming then a pander POP, with great melodies and great arrangements. It is not unfair to say that Bryan Ferry wrote for Roxy, if left to cover bloated (all "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" by Bob Dylan). Unfortunately for many, Ferry and Roxy are the POP ballad of "Avalon" and "Is Your Love Strong Enough", a good POP Rock, but they forget that they were a prog band with Eno on the edge of the wildest Glam Rock Garage and also Garage, if I may venture. What, the latter, which is not reflected here.

To say that "More Than This" is not a good compilation is not correct. To say that is what fans were looking to Bryan Ferry... That is correct.
