What is going on in this video? Setting aside the ill-advised Officer Pornstache outfit, what is wrong with Bryan Ferry’s face? He appears to be displaying the tell-tale lockjaw of someone who just blew a week’s paycheck up his nose. Which looks considerably less attractive than you imagine it does when you’re doing it. But I guess 1975 was that kind of a year for everybody. As for the song, well, I’d say it’s a minor love song, high in eccentricity. I honestly never thought Siren was one of Roxy Music’s greatest albums, though critics seem to have agreed that it’s a classic (for what ‘the critics’ are worth.) Though, of course, every Roxy Music album has cycled in and out of favorite status.
