Very good sound quality
Saturday, October 2, 2010
Needless to say this is an absolutely excellent Roxy Music album with great songs like "The Thrill of It All", "Out of the Blue", "Casanova" and "A Really Good TIme" - and the good news is that the sound quality is very good, particularly on "Bitter Sweet" and "A Really Good Time" where Eddie Jobson's violin sounds fantastic. Not sure the poster is necessary - i would have to wonder who has that one up on their wall... If you are looking for the slick uber-produced sound from the later Roxy this one won't be for you - its less artsy than the first two, but still not conventional and definitely ahead of its time. You can see the trajectory of the band heading towards "Siren" and away from "Stranded."
I only give it four stars because while the sound quality is really good its not up to the 45rpm releases that have come out for other artists.
