Quite a pleasant surprise from a generation older than I. Energetic. Unique. Enjoyable.

Definetly one of the top 5 DEBUT albums ever relised. If not the best. LOVE IT!

Interesting enough that I immediately listened to their next album.

For sure my favorite record of theirs. It's not to pop or new wave, and it's not to over produced. Much more raw than their later work.

My second favorite album from Roxy Music (after Avalon) is surprisingly sophisticated for a debut album, mixing in inventive music but not in an immature sense. If anything it's just a bit overindulgent at times, but overall this captures very well the bewildering lives of the rich and famous jet set, with just enough humor and tragedy sprinkled in.

I have the first four Roxy albums and this is the one I turn to the most. I'm not old enough (!) to have been aware of these when released but the Avalon era I do remember and wasn't keen at the time. Later I got into early RM mainly because my favourite band (Men Without Hats) covered Editions of You (off album 2), and I like it. Virginia Plain wasn't on the original UK release...but it's a great track. Something a bit different, and definitely an enjoyable album (although I admit The Bob (medley) is a bit oddball and Chance Meeting's kind of weird too. Would have rated it higher but for these two tracks.

One of the all time great debuts. A brilliant fusion of glam, avant-garde, rock, and, pre-Beatles pop. Bryan Ferry's voice has a bit of Bowie about, with a sprinkling of the young Presley and Sinatra. Opener, re-make/re-model, still blows you away with it's power and it's quirkiness, while, Virginia plain, is a stunning track, one of the best singles of the seventies, and the first of many fine 45's from Roxy over the next decade. Other standouts are, ladytron, and 2H.B. Closing track, bitters end, is a jazz pop ballad, the kind of which Ferry loves. One of the most important factors of the success of this album is Brian Eno's simplistic keyboard flourishes, they really are the icing on the cake. All in all, an excellent record, with more brilliance still to come.

From the first time I heard this 2HB struck as by far the best song on the album but I agree that also If There Is Something and a few others are very good. Overall its still a very good album so seeing it down as n°15 of 1972 seems a bit harsh but not too much since 72' was such a great year for music. Maybe n°6 or 7 would have been better. Anyway as far as glam rock is concerned this is one of the best ever.
