Review by Neu!mann
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This comprehensive two-disc DVD delivers exactly what the subtitle promises: a visual history, warts and all, of arguably the most visual band of its era, compiled from various promotional videos, TV appearances, and archival concert footage. No interviews, no biographies, and no extra clutter whatsoever: just thirty-eight total songs, arranged in chronological order, all the better to chart the band's progress from primitive glam-rock dilettantes to debonair modern rockers with style and sophistication to spare.

Some of the early television footage is embarrassing in hindsight (in particular the typically cheesy Top of the Pops, with its clumsy gyrating background dancers), and most of these performances are merely lip-synched pantomimes. I would stand the camera crews and editors in front of a firing squad, for not following the music better: there's a lot of arbitrary cutting away to other band members during Phil Manzanera's guitar solos, for example, and too many close-ups of crooner Bryan Ferry at the expense of other, equally deserving players. And would it be wrong to admit that Ferry's awkward lounge-lizard stage persona gives me the creeps?

Still, these early selections offer an invaluable time-capsule chronicle of a bygone entertainment age. And diehard fans can dissect the evolution of Ferry's eye-liner throughout the band's formative years. The decadent fashions are a hoot too: what exactly is Eno wearing during "Editions of You"?

It's hard to say how primetime English TV audiences reacted at the time to a love ballad about an inflatable sex doll ("In Every Dream Home a Heartache"), or to the avant-stoner head trip of "For Your Pleasure", drastically abbreviated during its BBC appearance but at least performed live. Eddie Jobson's transparent Plexiglas violin is still an attention-getter, and is that ex-Crimson King John Wetton playing bass guitar on "All I Want Is You"?

The first disc captures the band's ascent to stardom, from 1972 to their hiatus in 1976. Disc Two picks up the history after their return in 1979 for the "Manifesto" album, and if the music here is less interesting it's only because the reformed group was more a vehicle for singer Bryan Ferry. Witness the early MTV-age video for the song "More Than This", performed by Ferry alone while Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay are reduced to occasional distorted images on a theater screen behind him.

Roxy Music had long since lost its androgynous edge by then, being introduced in one clip (during a Swiss TV spot, before performing the hit single "Dance Away") by the girls of ABBA, who call them "one of our favorite groups", hardly a cutting edge recommendation. But the historical value of the entire two-disc package can't be underestimated. It works as both a visual biography of an influential band, and a parallel history of evolving promotional video techniques.

3 stars Comprehensive video overview

"The Thrill of it All" is an apt title for this chronological overview of the band's video career, mixing promotional videos, live performances, and television appearances. Roxy Music at times can be a very difficult group to conveniently categorize for people, or even describe. I personally consider them simply one of the most intelligent incarnations of pop music ever. Intelligent, and yet deviously, deliciously, devilishly.....fun fun fun! They are also an emotional rollercoaster taking the listener from moments of wailing rock solos to somber, heart wrenching ballads, to light and danceable hits. All of the above are presented here in quantity. First you have the promotional videos and I admit the MTV era promos are pretty hard for me to stomach more than once, though Ferry's fashion sense will keep you yucking it up throughout. The television appearances can be equally grueling in some cases especially when the band is lip-syncing rather than performing---once I see a band is not actually performing I just hit the skip button. The payoffs are the truly live clips which dish out what you crave Roxy Music for: great song-writing, passionate performance, and a surprise around every corner. I believe many of the live tracks are from the '82 French show featured in "The High Road" video and these are super. The live version of "Song for Europe" is quite simply one of the most beautiful songs you will ever hear. Ferry has the ability to deliver vocals that melt the heart of any person, male or female. He's a craftsman, a master of the emotional vocal, not unlike Frank Sinatra in his control even though the music is so very different. Live versions of "Avalon" and "While my heart is still beating" can equally enrapture even casual fans. So for a good historical overview this is a decent package but for the real Roxy experience, you are better off finding their two exquisite live DVDs "The High Road" or "Live at the Apollo." With the live discs you will get the complete live Roxy experience the way it was intended, not broken apart with some mediocre material.
