AN OUT AND OUT MASTERPIECE,
This review is from: Stranded (Audio CD)
Following the utter brilliance of their first two albums, comes their masterpiece. A totally captivating musical experience.It seems wrong to single out any individual song because this is a fautless album with each brilliant song creating a different mood adding up to a compelling listening experience ...as soon as the last song finishes you want to play the whole album again. However, SONG FOR EUROPE and MOTHER OF PEARL are the essence of Roxy Music...brilliant lyrics, wonderful melodies, caressing vocals and the great musicianship with that unique vibe that is typical of early Roxy Music. If I could only have,say,ten albums by anyone this would be one of them. Ferry is at the absolute top of his game here - an artist totally immersed in the moment and creating a thrilling musical experience. Roxy Music and Ferry went on to create more great music but this album would never be eclipsed. ESSENTIAL LISTENING.
