Recorded at Compass Point, Nassau, Bahamas and The Power Station, New York, New York. From 1975's SIREN through the rest of Roxy Music's albums and his concurrent solo work, Bryan Ferry was leading up to AVALON. The last Roxy Music studio album (it was followed by numerous collections, both live and otherwise), it is the perfect culmination of Ferry's constant striving for the ultimate sophistication. On AVALON, the styles that the band had explored in the past--funk, jazz, and rock--come together to create a texture of remarkable subtlety. The title track is Ferry's finest moment. His suave voice turns the romance all the way up, while the band plays in a smooth, light jazz-funk groove and guitar notes shimmer like the sun on water. "While My Heart is Still Beating" features Andy Mackay's saxophone drifting in around Phil Manzanera's languid guitar lines. "True to Life," a ballad shot through with reverberation, is the kind of song aching to be played late at night with the lights off. From the almost jaw-dropping elegance of the opening track, "More Than This," to the closing "Tara," a sparse, evocative instrumental, AVALON is Roxy Music's masterpiece. Editorial reviews 4 stars out of 5 - ...A demi-monde of exhausted, ruined glamour is conjured by the title track....AVALON is their weary goodbye and as a farewell letter from a national treasure, it's a bittersweet treat. Q (12/01/1999) ...a coherent piece of work with a high strike rate....sparkling pop... Mojo (01/01/2000) 4 stars out of 5 - ...The sounds on this, the biggest-selling album of their career, are as avant-garde as anything they'd ever done, just more subtle... Uncut (09/01/2003) 4 stars out of 5 - ...AVALON, in its indistinct beauty, said everything Ferry needed to say about sophisticated pop for grown-ups... Mojo (09/01/2003) Ranked # 31 in Rolling Stone's 100 Best Albums Of The Eighties survey. Rolling Stone (11/01/1989)
