Why This Album Is So Great:

Few of the great pop artists from the 80's (and into the 90's) can say that they have not been influenced by Roxy Music. When it comes to classy and stylish pop music, Roxy Music ruled the 70's and first parts of the 80's. "Avalon" was their last studio album but also the album where they perfected their style and sound. A sound Bryan Ferry would later continue on his great solo albums. The album contains the all-time Roxy classic "Avalon" and a number of songs in the same tone. Also, you get your more instrumental bits, so overall there's very little to left to want when the album's finished playing. A classic.

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 8
