Olympia (2010)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Oct 25, 2010; Lead Performance: Bryan Ferry; Genre: Pop

The Roxy Music frontman’s latest solo album opens with soft-focus keyboard that harks back to 1982’s Avalon, so it seems 
 almost inevitable when Roxy cohorts Phil Manzanera, Brian Eno, and Andy Mackay wander in later. (Chic’s Nile Rodgers and Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea also drop by.) Finding true love has never come easy to Ferry, but his famed warble still revels in elusive, discofied romance. B+
