Picture Perfect and Audio to boot... Not all titles under blu ray can claim this by definition.
What interests me in this selection of songs is the breadth: iI goes back to the first Roxy and includes the latest, Olympia. This is a masterful song selection, including covers of Dylan (obviously) but also Neil Young and John Lennon and Sam and Dave. You get a total sense of the man as an artist who has surveyed decades of music, integrated all them within his repertoire of resources, and approaches everything with both respect and real enthusiasm. Of the originals, he harkens back to a surprising number from some disputed classic albums, like Bride Stripped Bare and Flesh + Blood. Both were fine records, dismissed because they were departures, and critics don't like departures. Hearing Sign of the Times reminded me of what an incredible pop song it is. My Only Love is so breathtakingly spare and heart wrenching. From Olympia, there are three selections, one dark disco, one darker disco, and one brilliantly subtle ballad. It's a daring mix, and it all works out superbly.
The band is far from geezer. (I don't know what the person was thinking when the second drummer, second guitarist, sax/keyboardist are all younger than that reviewer likely is. By the way, calling a woman a "bird" is pretty pathetic, since she's a great musician and it REALLY shows YOUR age, my friend. Maybe not chronologically, but for sure in karma years.) Ferry's voice never sounded better live, because here he dispenses with his dance steps and focuses on the notes, and if you watch, he's actually singing them.Read more ›
Bryan in his 60s is my favorite Bryan Ferry ever- and I can't wait to see what he does next.
