Roxy Music ‎– For Your Pleasure (1973)

For Your Pleasure is the sophomore full-length from English sextet Roxy Music. Released in March 1973, the album is their last to feature synthist Brian Eno, who would launch his solo career that same year. Thematically, the album contrasts romanticism and decadence with material that ranges from flamboyant (“Do the Strand”) to fractious (“Editions of You”). Experimentation is further mined though the sinister drone of “In Every Dream Home a Heartache” and the echoey chills of the title-track.
