2017 EU repressed on 180g LP- includes the singles 'All I Want Is You' & 'The Thrill Of It All'. Country Life is Roxy Music's second release after the departure of Brian Eno and it's arguably the high point of the band's ouput from that era. The haunting, melancholic "The Thrill of It All," the art-rockin' "Out of the Blue," the almost-pure '50s rock of "If It Takes All Night," the decadent affectations of "A Really Good Time" and the concluding "Prairie Rose," all offer glimpses of alternative rock before the genre even existed. The combination of textures is exhilarating, and the songwriting which draws on elements of R&B, cabaret music and glam rock is among the band's most accomplished.

 The ultracool murmur of Bryan Ferrys voice could not be better suited to the warm musical setting offered by guitarist Phil Manzanera.  Country Life brims with romantic pop and sleek arrangements that hint at a lifestyle of luxury style and erotic allure.  "Thrill of It All" is a highwater mark for art rock and glam rock.
