1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

709. For Your Pleasure – Roxy Music

Brief Background: For Your Pleasure was recorded in February of 1973 and released in March of the same year.

What I think: I gave Roxy Music’s first album a pretty good review, and enjoyed a good amount of it. I really can’t say that about this one. “Beauty Queen” is stellar and “Editions of You” is pretty good, but the rest just feels like stiff prog rock without the weird time changes (is that a good or a bad thing?).

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? This one obviously went right over my head.

Rating (Out of 5): 3

For Your Pleasure Amazon Review (Out of 5): 4.5

Is this my first time hearing this album? Yes (225/293)

Percentage of Albums that are new to me: 78%
