HMV Review

Flesh + Blood suggested that Roxy Music were at the end of the line, but they regrouped and recorded the lovely Avalon, one of their finest albums. Certainly, the lush, elegant soundscapes of Avalon are far removed from the edgy avant-pop of their early records, yet it represents another landmark in their career. With its stylish, romantic washes of synthesizers and Bryan Ferry's elegant, seductive croon, Avalon simultaneously functioned as sophisticated make-out music for yuppies and as the maturation of synth pop. Ferry was never this romantic or seductive, either with Roxy or as a solo artist, and Avalon shimmers with elegance in both its music and its lyrics. More Than This, Take a Chance with Me, While My Heart Is Still Beating, and the title track are immaculately crafted and subtle songs, where the shifting synthesizers and murmured vocals gradually reveal the melodies. It's a rich, textured album and a graceful way to end the band's career. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

    ’82年の彼らのラスト・アルバム。元々アーティスティックな美学を持ったアヴァンギャルドなバンドですが、本作に関して言えばその高純度な美学の構築が実を結び、成熟した芸術的な完成度を見せてます。あのごつい顔のBryan Ferryからは想像できない洗練された緻密なアレンジはとてもスマートで美しく、M1、3は今なを名曲!ほんと名盤!彼らの他のアルバムも好きですが、本作は次元が違います。ジャケット・アートはいまだにWishbone Ashの『ARGUS』と間違えます(笑)。

    25年以上前に何も知らずに聴いたときは、あまりのスムースさにBGMか、ムード歌謡か?と思ってしまいました。(大変失礼!)当時10代後半の拙い耳にはそう聞こえたのです。しかし以来、おそらく2000回前後は聴いてきた今は、完璧さのすぐ裏にある退廃、倦怠感の方に惹かれます。無人島に持っていく10枚のうちの1枚。

    Bryan Ferryの「耽美主義(道徳功利性を廃して美の享受・形成に最高の価値を置く西欧の芸術思潮)的ロマンティシズム」に貫かれた極上のリズムとサウンドが、全体を覆い尽くす!しかし、こんなに瑞々しくて艶っぽい作品が他のどこにあるのだろうか…と思いきやこんなところにありました…それは「Prince And The Revolution」の「Parade」です!(浮気者)
