For Your Pleasure is the second album by the British glam rock group Roxy Music, released by Island Records in 1973. It was their last to feature synthesizer and sound specialist Brian Eno, who would later gain acclaim as a solo artist and producer.

The group was able to spend more studio time on this album than on their debut, combining strong song material by Bryan Ferry with more elaborate production treatments. For example, the song "In Every Dream Home a Heartache" fades out in its closing section, only to fade back in again with all the instruments subjected to a pronounced phasing treatment. The title track fades out in an elaborate blend of tape loop effects. Brian Eno remarked that the eerie "The Bogus Man" displayed similarities with contemporary material by the krautrock group Can.

Of the more upbeat numbers on the album, "Do the Strand" and "Editions of You" were both based around insistent rhythms in the tradition of the band's first single "Virginia Plain." "Do the Strand" has been called the archetypal Roxy Music anthem, whilst "Editions of You" was notable for a series of ear-catching solos by Andy Mackay (sax), Eno (VCS3), and Phil Manzanera (guitar).

"While their debut album gave glimpses of brilliance, mostly stacked onto its first side, with For Your Pleasure, it seems as if Roxy Music had truly, irrevocably arrived. Their second album radiated with a true confidence, and a songwriting and arranging excellence now pouring forth like a breached dam...The music is fresh, interesting, and consistently surprising." - Ground and Sky
