While Bryan ferry had not yet found his voice, For your pleasure is a enjoyable jazzy album.

From Brad1770
Roxy Musics 2nd album and final with Brian Eno has all the swagger , sophistication and confidence they would build a career on . Put quite simply its a triumph

Stand out track is clearly the sex doll parody track "In Every Dream Home a Heartache" which would become a RM live staple for many years and contains the immortal line:

"I blew up your body/ but you blew my mind"

Whilst closer "For Your Pleasure" has Eno's fingerprints all over it (listen out for Judi Dench saying " You dont ask.You dont ask why" right as the track closes)

Essential

If the standard have been like Bogus man and For your Pleasure this record have absolutely been one of the best ever .Many songs are perfect but if you take the best from Stranded, likes Street life Just like you and Amazonas Wow

Not nearly as good as the first album. The music here is just...very repetitive. If you think that's boring and not artistic, musically, you won't find much here. Lyrically, however, this album is great, with glammy, bizarrely alluring bohemian tales of tryst.

How this is not rated among the best albums of the 70's is beyond me. Revolutionary for 73 and is a very enjoyable listen. Quite accessible for an art rock album.

The best Roxy Music album ever in terms of inventiveness, clarity and execution. Eno shines his production magic, particularly brilliant on "The Bogus Man".

For your pleasure, is another quirky masterpiece from Roxy Music. This would be the last record the band would make with Brian Eno which is a shame because it would have been interesting to see where it went, but as Bryan Ferry said, there's only room for one non musician in this band. Do the strand, kicks proceedings off in superb fashion, another odd little rock-a-roller. Elsewhere, the blow up doll fetish of, in every dream home a heartache, is a highlight, as is the funky groove of, the bogus man. Other standouts are, beauty queen, and, editions of you. It's a stunning LP, but unfortunately Roxy would never be quite so quirky again. Still, there was more greatness to come.

Whoa. What a revelation! I thought I'd hate this album. Surprisingly jammy. It's a definite precursor to new wave. Brian Ferry's voice is wacky, vibrating all over, it kinda reminds me of Scott Walker. Eno is a soundscape master, as usual. The sax and oboe add an extra layer of sexy. Manzanera ravages that guitar. The drums can make (Odessey and Oracle) or break an album for me, and the set on here is perfect. I need more Roxy, I really do.

From swhaze
Glam-art-rockers were up and coming, full of talent, and sure of it. FYP feels a little too self-consciously charismatic to provide the effortlessly classy pop they became known for, but is interesting enough to fool around with from time to time.
