Siren album cover

Roxy Music

Island Records

Siren is almost a case of coasting just a little bit on afterburners after the group’s first four albums to this point. Yet with “Love Is the Drug” alone the group brilliantly presented a clipped, elegant dance and rock sensation that absolutely helped shape the feeling of disco to come, as superfan Nile Rodgers of Chic freely admitted. Beyond that, Roxy Music still delivered plenty of highs as it closed out its earliest run as a band, with songs like the sweeping “Both Ends Burning” and the album closing reminiscence “Just Another High” adding to their canon.
