iTunes Review

He turned 69 in 2014, but Bryan Ferry prefers dabbling in the sounds not of his youth but of his middle age. If Avonmore needs a point of comparison, it starts with Roxy Music’s final album (1982’s Avalon) and continues through Ferry’s ’80s solo output, in that era when meticulous rhythms, layers of synths, and sophisticated styles were first in style. Closing the album with Stephen Sondheim’s “Send in the Clowns” and Robert Palmer’s “Johnny & Mary” modify the sting of somber recollection. But whether it’s the Johnny Marr cowrite “Soldier of Fortune” or the pensive “Lost,” Ferry is best when he bares his grey side.

He’s Back!

Listen for Nile Rodgers guitar about 30 seconds into Loop de Li. More Brilliance from Bryan Ferry, the UK Icon. Never have understood why BF never quite crossed over with huge US success because I think his music is legendary, a class act indeed…

Back To Boys and Girls

Stellar first track!

Outstanding New Album

This is another wonderful album from the Master. All of the songs are terrific. I especially enjoyed Loop De Li, the disco-ish Avonmore, and a mysterious version of Send in the Clowns.

The lyrics, as expected, are a haunting continuation of Ferry's ennui, usually describing lost and unrequited love. This man must be regarded as one of the best lyricists in the entire history of popular music. Musically, the tunes are sensuous, subdued, and somewhat reminiscent of the music on Mamouna and Taxi. Yet, Ferry continues to break new ground. The music is not as brash as You Can Dance or Ferry's concert favorites, but it is catchy and complex. I found myself focusing intently on each of the songs. I think he has found a type of sound that matches his mellowing voice perfectly.

I would think that Ferry's long-time fans would love this new addition to his resume. I think it should attract many new fans as well.
