Progrography

Bryan Ferry
To appreciate the music of Bryan Ferry originally depended on your view of the singer: was he a left-of-center revisionist or simply a frustrated crooner? Sometimes, Ferry seemed to be both at once. His first album, These Foolish Things, led with a slightly unnerving cover of Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" and ended with a beautifully rendered (and relatively straight) reading of "These Foolish Things." Another Time, Another Place continued the exercise, again to English acclaim and American indifference. When Roxy Music split up following Siren, Ferry's two musical personas converged on the wonderful Let's Stick Together. In Your Mind took things one step further, with Ferry writing all-new material for a kind of Roxy Music lite. Some found the comparison unflattering, so Ferry retreated to his earlier terrain on the cover-heavy The Bride Stripped Bare. In the late '70s, Roxy regrouped, though Ferry brought his crooning ways with him, creating new romantic music that influenced a new (and arguably more banal) generation of singers. After several albums, Roxy was gone for good, but their latter-day music lived on in Ferry solo albums like Boys and Girls, Bete Noire, and Mamouna. Apparently taking a vacation from himself, the singer also released two more albums of cover songs in the '90s: Taxi and As Time Goes By.
