Description: Avalon, released in 1982, was Roxy Music's eighth (and, to date, final) studio album. Recorded in 1981-82 at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, it is generally regarded as the culmination of the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of the band's later work.

"A great album and one with plenty of emotion. There aren't really weak moments in this album and for me it's one of those reasons why 80's music is some of my favourite.

Highly recommended."

RS 500: Part 4 (100 music items)

""Peter Sinfield, producer of Roxy Music's angular and wild 1972 debut, said that on Avalon they "ran out of naivete." Their sound was now woozy and lush, horny yet mature. And also unabashedly romantic. A synth-soul landmark, Avalon was their biggest hit, their swan song and the pinnacle of rock elegance.""
