Over Bryan Ferry
Bryan Ferry's satiny smooth vocals were the force that made the space-age cabaret premise of Roxy Music not only credible, but incredible. "Virginia Plain," "Love Is the Drug," "More Than This"... under Ferry's direction, Roxy Music produced some of the milestones of modern Pop, but he has also been a prolific solo performer. Devoting much of his catalog to tender re-workings of songs varying from Soul to rock standards to canonical tunes from the 1930s, Ferry has pursued each of these vectors with characteristic delicacy and tendresse. His succulent voice possesses such powerful magnetism that even his less inspired performances are difficult to resist.
