Roxy Music

Island Records

On their second album Roxy Music maybe started to settle a bit, but only by degrees. Brian Eno famously left soon after but there’s still enough chaotic edge from his synth work, while Bryan Ferry’s arch lounge-lizard persona still had enough of a wild side going on, all ably supported by the other key players like Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay and Paul Thompson. The result was yet more compelling variety, from the frenetic opener “Do the Strand” to the lengthy funk paranoia of “The Bogus Man,” the rampaging crunch of “Editions of You” and the spare mysteriousness of the title track.
