Bryan Ferry • Slave To Love - The Best Of The Ballads



Review by Steve Huey
When Slave to Love: The Best of the Ballads was released in 2000, there hadn't been a true Roxy Music compilation in print for years. Street Life and More Than This were both grab bags of Roxy Music singles and material from Bryan Ferry's solo career. While it's logical to assume that fans of one artist would certainly be interested in the other, the approach never made for a unified compilation -- Roxy Music's sound shifted quite a bit over the years, and their earlier, edgier singles never sat well next to the smooth balladeering of Ferry's companion career. However, Slave to Love is the first Ferry/Roxy grab bag to make internal sense, because it's thematically limited to the Roxy material that most resembles Ferry's crooning solo style. By the time of 1982's Avalon, the gap between the two had narrowed so much as to be virtually indistinguishable, and this compilation captures the elegantly romantic sound that came to be inextricably linked to Ferry. Slave to Love shouldn't be taken as comprehensive, even in this narrower vein (there are several excellent late-period Roxy Music singles missing), but as an encapsulation of one specific part of their appeal, it makes for a strong listen.

Reseña de Steve Huey
Cuando Esclavo del Amor: The Best of the Ballads fue lanzado en el año 2000, no había habido una verdadera compilación de Roxy Music impresa durante años. Street Life y More Than This eran bolsas de discos de Roxy Music y material de la carrera en solitario de Bryan Ferry. Mientras que es lógico asumir que los fans de un artista estarían interesados en el otro, el enfoque nunca hizo una compilación unificada - el sonido de Roxy Music cambió bastante con el paso de los años, y sus anteriores singles nunca se sentaron bien al lado de la suave balada de la carrera de compañero de Ferry. Sin embargo, Slave to Love es la primera bolsa de sorpresas de Ferry/Roxy que tiene sentido interno, ya que se limita temáticamente al material de Roxy que más se asemeja al estilo solista de Ferry. Para la época del Avalon de 1982, la brecha entre los dos se había reducido hasta el punto de ser virtualmente indistinguible, y esta compilación captura el sonido elegantemente romántico que llegó a estar inextricablemente ligado a Ferry. Slave to Love no debe ser tomado como comprensivo, incluso en esta vena más estrecha (hay varios excelentes singles de última hora de Roxy Music que faltan), pero como una encapsulación de una parte específica de su atractivo, hace que la escucha sea más fuerte.
