Biography

From their earliest steps, Roxy left a massive footprint on British popular culture. They were formed in 1971 by Ferry, Mackay and Brian Eno, the axis completed with Manzanera's official arrival early next year, by which time the music press was buzzing. Their self-titled debut album in the summer of '72 - declared by many then and ever since as the best first album ever - cleared the ... Read more in Amazon's Roxy Music Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With startling, boundless creativity, Roxy Music's juiced-up debut record put a subversive spin on mid-'70s conventions, embracing glam-pop and artsy electronics while harboring a deep love of classic rock songcraft. Brian Eno's stamp is all over the record, driving songs like "Re-Make/Re-Model" down strange, atonal avenues. Bryan Ferry's nightclub glamour-boy persona and wandering vibratos help make timeless epics out of molehills like the (originally non-album) track "Virginia Plain." Eno stuck around for one more record, 1973's For Your Pleasure, leaving Ferry and the band to embrace their less avant-garde leanings. This unpredictable, dangerous record might be a shock for those who associate Roxy Music with the silky sounds of later records such as Flesh + Blood and Avalon. It is nevertheless essential listening for all who care about boundary-defining rock, as well as the possibilities for profound innovation and redefinition that artists like David Bowie, T. Rex, and the New York Dolls promised, but never quite delivered. --Matthew Cooke

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Debut August 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
One of the most powerful and important debut albums of all time,along with The Velvet Underground And Nico,The Stooges, and Beefheart's Safe As Milk. Roxy Music brings an edge with sophistication to the music. Part progressive,part early rock n' roll,part experimental, this material is almost unclassifiable."If There Is Something" is powerful and hypnotic."Virginia Plain" is like quirky new wave pop that brings to mind XTC,Devo,and The Cars, 5 years before such a thing existed. Phil Manzanera shows he can make some ear splitting noise on guitar, equivalent to Robert Fripp, though with his own trademark on cuts like "Chance Meeting" and "Ladytron". Andy Mackay may well be the coolest rock n' roll sax man of all time. Paul Thompson's drumming is powerful and solid throughout. Your 80's loving yuppie friends that think Roxy Music is about smooth product like Avalon need to hear this one instead; it will probably clear the room!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Weird and the Wonderful April 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Nothing before or since sounds like Roxy's debut effort. It lurches all over the map, including bits of loud rock, odd tape samples, heavily ironic takes on pop music, 50's rock-n-roll & some stuff you can't even identify. Some times, all in the same song. Roxy Music probably paid a heavy commercial price the rest of their career for this album, since it indelibly tagged them as arty weirdos long after their sound changed completely. Nonetheless, it is terrific on its own merits. Anyone with a taste for the unusual (but not atonal) should consider this a must-have.
For those whose image of Roxy is the Siren-to-Avalon dreamy mood, this does not even resemble that band. Eno's influence was at its zenith on the debut. Not the ambient Eno, but the madcap cut-&-paste pop pastiche Eno. Plenty of loud guitar, greasy sax & Paul Thompson pounding the drums to leaven the mayhem. All in all, lots of fun interspersed with a serious dose of "what in the world was that?"

5.0 out of 5 stars A Freakishly Brilliant Debut. May 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
In 1972, when groups like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones were dominating the American charts and stadiums, another British rock band named Roxy Music released its debut album to an unsuspecting public. "Roxy Music" is the first of two albums to feature sound wizard Brian Eno, and it's quite a listening experience like no other. The album can best be described as art rock with a few ambient touches, with often brilliant results. Eno's electronic mastery, coupled with Bryan Ferry's piano and distinct voice, are well-backed by fellow musicians Andy Mackay, Phil Manganera, Paul Thompson, and Graham Simpson. "Ladytron" opens with a wash of eerie synths before it blasts into a full-blown rocker; "Chance Meeting" is a piano-flavored ballad perfectly set Ferry's pained vocals, and "2 H.B." is as smooth as Italian silk. From track to track, "Roxy Music" boils over with class and sophistication, making them peerless in the arena of avant garde rock. Those whose first Roxy album was "Avalon" might be in for a shock when they pick this CD up. But when listened with an open mind, its rare riches will win you over. A classic ahead of its time.

Format:Audio CD
I am a 23 year old fan of Roxy Music. Before i turned 21 i was listening to contemporary rock such as Radiohead, Suede, Placebo, Talk Talk, Doves and older favourites David Bowie and The Beatles among many others. I had never heard of this band with such an unusual and mysterious name until hearing David Bowie drop it during a concert appearance.
I went to my local cd store and realised that the entire Roxy catalogue was re-mastered and selling for $12.99 Australian. I thought i'd start with the first Roxy albumn, arguably an unwise choice for the uninitiated. I bought the albumn without hearing a single cut or having any pre-knowledge on this band. The albumn cover and sleeve notes did appear misleading. First judgements would suggest that this band was all about style, what with the fashion model, the band members in their glamorous attire with acknowledgments made to the hair/makeup and clothing designers. I was proven wrong from the first moment i heard the energetic piano chords that begin Re-make Re-model and that voice that ripped through my soul and out the other side. The emotion that was exuded was incomparable with any other music i had ever heard. I loved the music from my first listen and it only got better as time went by.
It still blows my mind that this music still sounds so contemporary, yet original and quirky and some might say weird (in a good way) after 30 years since its original release. Sure it isn't easy listening by any means and it's really an aquired taste, like anchovies! The one problem you may confront when you fall in love with this albumn, is that it will literally haunt you and make you feel small beyond belief. Depeche Mode and Talk Talk (Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock albums in particular) are also two bands that create this feeling in me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oo-oo Show Me! ROXY MUSIC debut the MISSING LINK April 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to English Rock since my 10 years older brother let me play his BEATLES, ANIMALS and ROLLING STONES records in the mid 60s (yes, I was 5 and 6). Later, I'm ashamed to confess that ROXY MUSIC just barely hit my radar way back when ("LOVE IS THE DRUG" and "MORE THAN THIS") only because I was into all the records (meaning the club hits) and I knew who Bryan Ferry was, and from my reading, ROXY MUSIC 's esteemed reputation, but the band basically slipped thru the cracks. All these years later, I found myself rictus by my own late discovery of this underrated and under appreciated album, this rare gem in the vast annals of ROCK music. This stunner serves up hot, garish, over the top, hard a**, hard as nails rock, AND MORE, better than BOWIE, QUEEN, YES {GARY GLITTER, ALICE COOPER, T. REX} whom I bracket for obvious reasons, LED ZEPPELIN, and maybe even my old fave PINK FLOYD, ever delivered !! There is no doubt ELTON JOHN was listening to this record as evinced by GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD , but perhaps his influence on ROXY can also be heard.

In 1979 The ROLLING STONE RECORD GUIDE gave ROXY MUSIC's 1972 debut album two stars (2 stars)! A lousy two stars! Since the GUIDE had given THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS awesome 1969 debut, THE GILDED PALACE OF SIN, a mere four stars (4 stars) I had realized that some of the reviews and ratings were suspect, being contemporaneous (they were too myopic back then to realize the huge influence, and perfection, of records like PALACE or ROXY MUSIC). Like PALACE, the debut of ROXY MUSIC was simply way ahead of its time.
