Roxy's self-titled first album, although containing some of their strongest songs, is too poorly produced in parts to be considered their classic. ''For Your Pleasure', the follow up, tends to claim this accolade but for me 'Stranded' is the epitome of Roxy Music.

Coming as it did, smack bang in the middle of their glorious early/mid period, it contains songs that could easily belong on any of those records. Included is all the wierdness, exotica, brooding beauty and surprise that you would associate with the band across those first five albums. That's not to say the album is at all diffuse, various would best describe it, with every song sounding very 'Roxy-like' without ever really sounding like the last.

If 'Stranded' is Roxy Music's finest album, then, in 'Mother-of Pearl', it contains their finest song. From it's strange and original uptempo opening to it's delightfully sad/joyous main section this song just screams Roxy Music and never more so than in it's flowing, opaque lyric. I've never heard anything quite like this and that is part of Roxy's brilliance and appeal: they are not really Rock N' Roll at all but at the same time they aren't anything else.

Roxy, for me at least, are one of those few bands you may be lucky enough to hear in your life, whose music, for a time, obssesses you. There's something you love and admire about some bands without quite putting your finger on what it is. You feel really thankful that this band existed and whether you were there or not (In Roxy's case I'm only 32 and first listened to them in my early twenties) you can still feel excited by the fact that they happened; that they did what they did.

A truly underrated band and one of Britain's best kept musical secrets (everyone's heard of Roxy Music but who still plays this stuff?). Start here!

The third Roxy Music album and also a watershed. This album marks the beginning of the movement towards mainstream commercialism. That is not to say that this album is bad. Far from it. This album contains some of Ferry's best songwriting and his voice is stronger too. The band sound more mature along with the production that compliments these great songs. 'Street life' still sounds like an out-take from the previous album, 'For your pleasure', with its distorted intro and Manzenara's blistering guitar. For me though , 'mother of Pearl' is the highlight of the album and marks Ferry's maturity as a songwriter. Another little gem on this album is 'Sunset' - Ferry's slow homage to the sun - wonderfully sad and thought provoking.
With Eno gone and Eddie Jobson taking his place (and adding his violin) the band moved on with this album. Although the previous two albums are my favourite, this comes third on my list! Great stuff!

If you thought that Roxy Music were all washed up when Eno swirled his cape and flounced out on the best 70s rock band, then feast your shell-like on this. Eddie Jobson came straight into the recording studio to join Ferry, Mackay, Manzenara and Thompson on this third and definitely the best Roxy outing, and you would be forgiven for thinking that Eno has come back with his tail between his legs after admitting 'Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy' probably wasn't, in all honesty, a very good idea and got stuck in to his tape loops and moogs again.
Everyone knows about 'Street Life', a classic belter of an opener, following hot on the heels of For Your Pleasure's 'Do The Strand'. But its 'Casanova', with its cheeky little riff which served Ice-T well 20 years later, and 'Song For Europe', during which Ferry actually sings in Latin agaist a backdrop of swirling piano and a crashing saxaphone solo, which really make the hairs on the back of your neck prick up.
But the best is yet to come. 'Mother of Pearl' is the best Roxy song ever, and I should know as I have all 10 of their albums (and 8 Ferry solo efforts of ever decreasing virtue). The song kicks off like a wild party with a chugging riff of which Led Zep would indeed be proud. And then it breaks off sublimely after 80 seconds to a soft tinkling of ivory and 6 further minutes of pure Ferry magic. Lyrics and voice to kill for. A first class album and a must buy for all fans of popular music.

For those of you who know Roxy Music from 1979 onwards this album and its predecessors will have passed you by, as they could have been made by a completely different band, such is the difference in style. To not listen to them because of this would be a tragedy and in particular this album, which is quite simply one of their finest works. Having been original Glam rockers they rose above the more commercial sound and created there very own tangent. This album is the definitive fusion between the bands original art rock weirdness and an unstoppable tidal wave of creativeness, which makes it near impossible to pigeon hole this band into a music genre. Opening with Street Life,, Ferry's complaint about the pop star lifestyle, through to the hippyesque overtones of Amazona, passing through Psalm which wouldn't sound out of place at a New Orleans funeral, to the moody Piaf european inspired whimsy of A song for Europe, this album contains a lot of diverse musical sounds and styles. Mother of Pearl is simply a masterpiece of how to blend many different styles of music, instruments and lyrics. On first listen it will probably sound no more than average and even annoying in places, but give it time, listen to it without distraction, and you will hear a whole new world open. A unique band, an influential band, pushing the boundaries of what was conventional back in the seventies, and still relevant today.
