4.0 out of 5 stars Late lament, 9 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Avalon (Audio CD)
Many Roxy fans from the Eno era probably look down on the later albums as they are mainstream offerings, but within that context they are among the classiest, most distinct pop albums of any age. 'Avalon' is proof that they adapted effortlessly to the changing recording values of the 1980s, a rarity among bands plying their trade in the early 1970s. In any case, they were revered by most of the latest pop generation of that age, such as Duran Duran.

'Avalon' has the richest collection of hit singles of any of their albums. 'Take A Chance With Me', with its folky descending scales wrapped in cutting edge cool, is gorgeous, yet languishes in the shade of the giddy 'More Than This' and the showstopping title track. The whole album is recorded beautifully, boosting even the less memorable material. 'The Space Between' and 'The Main Thing' are great dance tracks, while the usual cut glass guitar and swooning bass converse throughout. A fitting end to a great catalogue.
