Träffande citat om Roxy Music

Citatet nedan ur Pitchforks recension av Roxy Musics samlingsbox är så bra att jag hade kunnat författa det själv:

"The superb mid-70s albums in particular-- For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life and Siren-- are giddy, muscular displays, and vicious when they need to be. They're also Ferry's peak as a vocalist: by Stranded (also from '73) he'd found his voice but hadn't settled into the lounge lizard comfort zone, and was confident playing things staccato, mocking or sentimental. More importantly, his band had the same freedom to roam. If they lack the impertinent invention of the Eno years, these records are generous with opportunities for Roxy Music's lynchpins-- Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay and Eddie Jobson-- to shine and stretch. When they reach full steam behind an inspired Ferry, on "The Thrill of It All", "Street Life" or "Mother of Pearl", it's the best, most exciting music the band created."
