Roxy Music ‎– Roxy Music (1972)

Roxy Music is the debut album by the namesake English art-rock band, released in 1972 on Island Records. Despite its muddy production, the album pioneers sonic territory with the effects-laden, expressionistic contributions of the three main soloists. Evoking a mix of film noir and futurism, the music alternates fractured epics (“Remake/Re-model”, “Sea Breezes”) with simmering slow cuts both sinister (“Chance Meeting”) and melancholic (“If There Is Something”).

A1. Remake/Re-model
