One of my favourite Roxy Music albums, country life is a lot more than that excellent record sleeve. The thrill of it all, is a brilliant opener, and the LP never lets up with superb tracks such as, all I want is you, bitter sweet, and, prairie rose, all being highlights. Another classic Roxy album.

Roxy in high gear. A solid clutch of the band's best songs reside in these grooves, including "The Thrill of It All," "Out of the Blue" and "Prairie Rose," capped by Ferry's surreal lounge lizard vocal stylings. And that album art has its own place in the teen fantasy hall of fame. It's a complete package.

Roxy Music's best album, and not just for the album cover (although that's an added bonus). Standout tracks are: Thrill of It All, All I Want Is You, Really Good Time, and Prairie Rose.

Listening to this 38 years on it seems quite incredible how many bands it has influenced over the years
