Back in the day, I was working the graveyard shift at a radio station in Minneapolis. Waaaaaay in the back of the record library was a dusty stack of LPs never meant to see the light of day. Most of it was junk, but this record caught my attention (the photo of the beautiful woman in the torn dress is an attention-getter), and I put it on the turntable. I could not believe such creative musicians existed (other than King Crimson, but I digress). The ultimate irony is that, right next to this disc was the first Foreigner album. So there they were, the record that represented everything I hated about commercial pop music (Foreigner), and this Roxy album which was like finding a starlit path to heaven. I immediately became addicted and started buying recordings by Roxy, Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, etc. etc.....everything I could get my hands on. This is talent. This is music. Ten zillion Foreigner albums are not worth the ink on the record label of this disc. Buy it. It is a mind-bending, fully original classic.

Roxy Music is one of those groups, where everybody has their own opinion of which album is the best, because they never made a record not worth buying ('Flesh + Blood' is vastly underrated). But this is my personal favourite, because every track here is simply perfect, & it ties the group together, both with the experimental group they were before Eno's departure just before this album. And at the same time, it has most of what makes the later 'Country Life' and 'Siren' such classic albums. And then it has 'Street Life'...

'Street Life', that opens the album, is simply Roxy's greatest song ever (some of the romantic ballads are as good, but you can't compare them). This song is pure joy from start to end, with Ferry manically unleashing some of his strongest lyrics ever. The music is a feverish, ecstatic festival for youth & life. It is a party anthem that never gets dumb, old or clichéed, because the imagery here is nothing short of sorcery! Romantic sorcerer, that is what Ferry is here. Or drunken god... but what's the difference? This song is worth the world alone...

'Just Like You' is a tender ballad of the kind that Ferry does a million of, without it getting repetitive. 'Amazona' is an alltime classic, with almost psychedelic lyrics & riff so magical that it sweeps away your feet. 'Psalm' is just that, with traces of gospel, though that's what it's not. 'Serenade' is utter joy, a rolling rocker that somehow retains the romanticism of the earlier songs, while seeing it through the eyes of rock'n'roll.

'A Song For Europe' is a haunting, dark track, reminiscent of Lou Reed's 'Berlin' epic, released the same year, but still not, as it retains Ferry's romanticism.

Stranded shows a more melodic but still ambitious Roxy Music trying on musicial styles. While they don't all fit perfectly, the look is dazzling nonetheless. Stranded is the band's first true collaborative effort from start to finish. The first album was primarily written before the final line up was assembled. The second clearly had much input (although a dimished role for him) from Eno. Stranded features Ferry to the fore and clearly the front man while still very much a collaborative effort.
The surprising Mother of Pearl (the first Ferry song where he improvised the lyrics while listening to the playback for the very first time), wistful A Song for Europe and reverent Psalm all capture Roxy's topsy turvy world in transition. While Stranded isn't as odd as For YOur Pleasure or rock as hard as COuntry Life, the melodic sheen of these well crafted songs stand out in comparison to those efforts.
Eno's favorite Roxy album is Stranded.

one of the greatest albums (or artworks) I have ever encountered. For me, "Stranded" is a look at the single's scene, and Bryan Ferry seems to me both fascinated and alienated by it. When I once showed the cover to a friend, she winced and said the model on the cover did not look happy and had on too much make up. I told her, "of course!". Look at the album title! Indeed the model looks as though she is stranded on the lush island of 70's singles life. I listened to this album for the first time in my 30's, and I could relate to the feeling of being "Stranded." This theme makes this the deepest and perhaps darkest album of the Roxy Music fabulous five.

The opening song "Street Life" is a reference to singles life being like life on the street, but it is optimistic, and ends on the note, "you may be stranded if you stick around - and that is really something." Who said being stranded is all bad -maybe there is some fun to had.

"Just Like You" is a poem put to words, and is one of the most beautiful and creative songs I have ever heard (no hyperbole). Note the words, "never again will I give up my heart..." and "I've fallen head over heals for you," a reference to lost love that will be picked up again in the melencholy "Song for Europe."

Amazona is fascinating for it's baseline and guitar rift, and seems to address the heady potential of youth and youthful eroticism.

Psalm, and maybe I just don't get it, is the weakest song on the album. Perhaps Christianity was the one thing Roxy wasn't able to elucidate for whatever reason, but they made a serious attempt.

Seranade and A Song for Europe fit together, and the tone of the album changes with the opening words "Darkness Falls.
