Roxy Music's final studio album!

Avalon is the eighth and last studio album by the British band Roxy Music. Released in May 1982, it was recorded in 1981-82 at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, and is generally regarded as the culmination of the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of the band's later work. It was the band's most successful studio album, reaching No. 1 in the U.K. (for 3 weeks) and staying on the album charts for over a year. Although it only climbed as high as No. 53, Avalon is notable as the band's only platinum record in the U.S..

A single, "More Than This," preceded the album and was a Top 10 hit in Britain, Australia, and several European countries. The title track was released as the album's second single and also became a U.K. Top 20 hit. A third extract, "Take a Chance With Me," with a remixed version of album track "The Main Thing" on the b-side, reached the U.K. Top 30 and was Roxy Music's last U.K. hit single to date.

"...one of their finest albums...It's a rich, textured album and a graceful way to end the band's career." — AllMusic
