Roxy Music ‎– Country Life (1974)

Country Life is the fourth album by Euro-styled English sextet Roxy Music. Released in 1974 at the height of the band’s popularity, the album refines the newfound classicism of its predecessor.

With a mood that veers between opulent and ominous, the album is highlighted by the windy vortex of “Out of the Blue,” the searing rush of “Praire Rose,” the Weimar-esque camp of “Bitter-Sweet,” and the soaring melodrama of “The Thrill of It All.” Elsewhere, the debonair romantic pleas of “All I Want is You” and the barroom cockiness of “If It Takes All Night” give respite to the surrounding headiness.
