5.0 out of 5 stars a classic, 10 Feb 2002

This review is from: Taking Tiger Mountain (Audio CD)
A musician friend played me this album just after it was released. I was a staunch Roxy Music fan and I admit I resisted the charms during my first listening but something got planted in my soul that took root and grew soon after. I went out and bought my own copy and I went on a personal crusade to win my other friends over. For me Taking Tiger Mountain, Another Green World and Here Come the Warm Jets are equally fantastic. Each contain huge doses of pathos, depth and humor. On these 3 albums we find absolute gems, showing a talent for songwriting that Eno never again (much to my disappointment!) allowed to see the light of day. His ventures into ambient music are of course important works but you won't find anything there to move you. His colaborations with Bowie and his fine production work raised the standards of popular music through the 80s and his influence is still very apparent in many indie bands of today.
I lost my vinyl copy of Taking Tiger Mountain many years ago but just seeing the picture of the cover and reading the songlist starts the music playing in my head once again. I'm going to order the CD right now!
