5.0 out of 5 stars Ferry's Forgotten Gem, 15 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: In Your Mind (Audio CD)
In Your Mind is one of the least well known albums in Bryan Ferry's extensive back catalogue. It is also without doubt the last of his truly great solo albums. Recorded in 1976, the album is unusual in that it was the first solo record to contain completely original, self-penned material. More importantly it was Ferry's final album before he discovered the mordant ease of pre-programmable keyboards. The two most famous tracks on this record, This Is Tomorrow and Tokyo Joe, are still brilliant songs. Better still, especially to the unfamiliar listener, are exceptional recordings such as All NIght Operator (my personal favourite), Love Me Madly Again and the title track itself. Not only is each song beautifully crafted, they each show superb arrangements: chiming keyboards, spot-on vocals and some very tough bass. The only drawback is that at eight songs long, it's rather a slim collection but quality always wins out against quantity. The real tragedy is that this marvellous album, is almost impossible to reconcile with Ferry's later, lazy, output of the eighties and nineties. In Your Mind does exactly what the title promises and lingers for a long time to come.
