#367: Siren by Roxy Music

6.07.2011


Siren by Roxy Music (1975)

Favorite Track(s): "Love is the Drug" and "End of the Line" and "Whirlwind" and "She Sells" and "Could It Happen to Me?" and "Both Ends Burning" and "Nightingale" and "Just Another High"

Thoughts: Confession: I love this album cover. If you are going to have a naked lady on your record, this is the way to do it, in my opinion.

The music! It was roxy. Yes, I just wrote that.

When I "End of the Line" came on, I was shocked by how much I loved it, and that's the best feeling when you hear new music. They also have a song called "Sentimental Fool" and all I could think of was He came from somewhere in her long ago, the sentimental fool don't see, tryin' hard to re-create what had yet to be created once in her life. Am I right? Doobie Brothers, FTW. Which, now that I think about it, the Doobie Brothers better effing show up soon, or else.

I believe this our last Roxy Music album on the list, and I for one am sad to see them go, but I agree that Siren is probably the best of the 3 on here.

Is This Better Than A Hard Day's Night?: Yes.
