Roxy Music. Everything up to Siren is splendiferous. Except Love is the Drug. Can we somehow extricate that from their catalog, please?

The Heads. Awesome band. Roxy could never quite top Remain In Light.

Very hard to choose, as both bands are favourites of ours, and often played at the Berry mansion. Sitting on this one for a while.

Jeez ! One of the greatest guitarists ever, a sax/oboe player of immense talent, one of the best rock drummers since Bonham and Bryan Ferry. Throw in Jobson, Newmark and a slew of sidemen of world class calibre. Really?

Wow tough choice. Talking Heads by a hairs width.
Two of my favourites from my late teen years.

Roxy Music. Talking Heads (Byrne specifically) gets on my nerves after a while. Though Remain in Light and Speaking in Tongues were as good as it got in the early 80s. Roxy just had more soul.

Love both bands.  Voted for Roxy because they got better and better as a band.  Yes, early material was creative and unique, but they also sounded like they were learning their instruments as they were recording.  The Heads reached a peak after a few years, but waned at the end.  Roxy ended their career with their best album.  So yes, Icarium, I like Avalon.

I liked Roxy's later stuff more than their earlier stuff and vice versa.
Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...
