Heaven Week: Angel Eyes

Roxy Music: Angel Eyes


Manifesto was Roxy Music's sixth studio album and came after a hiatus of several years that saw lead singer, Brian Ferry, release two successful solo records. Angel Eyes was the third single from the album, which was minus former members Paul Thompson (drums) and Eddie Jobson (synthesizer/violin) and supplemented by session players Andy Newmark, Neil Hubbard, and Alan Spenner. This resulted in a distinct change in the band's sound, which shifted to a more middle-of-the-road musical arrangement. IMO, Roxy became Bryan Ferry's backing band, this is more of the sort of music you would expect from his solo efforts.

Angel Eyes is a heavenly slab of seductive smooth-soul Pop - St. Pete would understand if you went back for more.
