late contender for track of the year imho onion.
Its the only blip in a great album
Its dogshit pure and simple
Hits all the same buttons for me that Kill for Love did a few years ago. Not really a fan of the rest of the Todd Terje album. Now Avonmore, on the other hand...
'Avonmore' is very good. Takes a while to sink its claws in but worth the effort. It's made me think I should go back and give those late period Roxy albums another go which I've previously not rated.
I mean, Avalon is my favourite Roxy Music album, and Avonmore is pretty similar right down to the typeface, so I was bound to like it!
I hope Avalon outgrows its 'adult contemporary' tag at some point because there's so much to enjoy there. 'More Than This' and 'True to Life' are some of the finest songs Ferry ever wrote.
Not huge on roxy, this qualifies as my favourite ferry vocal. It's fragility stops you in your tracks.
Can't listen to it without thinking of this unfortunately, which kind of kills it for me.
but I sure as hell ain't going to click on it!
