Love the first four.
Best album?
Any of the first three.
Personal fav is the first one, best debut ever.
Have no problem with the Mk.II

I just played the live album for the first time in ages. Excellent record, great selection of material. My only complaint is it wasn't a double.

I was listening to the debut a lot a couple weekends ago. I've always liked it, but it almost seemed like I was hearing it for the first time. One of those instances where you're almost amazed at how good something you thought familiar sounds.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I can't think of another band/artist with such a remarkably adventurous and consistent catalog.

I tend to agree.

I'm still sore at Bryan Ferry, for nicking Eddie Jobson from Curved Air.

Or pay £171.99 for the super deluxe edition:

Roxy Music’s ground-breaking debut album is expanded in an exclusive super-deluxe package featuring rare and previously unavailable material. It represents the first time Roxy Music’s archives have been opened, offering rare and genuinely never-heard-before material outside Roxy’s inner circle. Compiled with the group’s involvement, the 3CD / DVD 12” X 12” box set includes the original album including ‘Virginia Plain’, the demo tape that led to their first record deal plus the legendary BBC Sessions that saw the group hone their craft. There’s also an entire disc, exclusive to this format, of previously unheard studio outtakes prepared exclusively by Bryan Ferry and producer Rhett Davies including alternate session versions for every album track and ‘Virginia Plain’. The original album is presented in the 1999 Bob Ludwig master, while the reminder of the audio has been mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road. The DVD includes promos and BBC TV appearances as well rare footage of Roxy at the Bataclan Club in Paris in November 1972, the only surviving capture of this line-up live on stage. To round the audio/visual elements of the set off, lifetime admirer Steven Wilson has mixed the album into 5.1 DTS 96/24 and Dolby AC3 Sound. Seven years in the making, the box set also contains a 136-page book printed on hi-gloss 170gsm paper curated by Bryan Ferry, containing many rare and previously unpublished photographs, and an essay by Guardian journalist and author Richard Williams, the man who first wrote about the group in Melody Maker in 1971.

Why are they including Virginia Plain on the original album?

And no The Numberer either.

"We must address the issue of pricing. Amazon in the UK currently have a pre-order price of £172, which is insane. This price will inevitably come down to at least the £130 mark before the release date (Amazon France currently have a price equivalent of around £137). That is still very, very high of course and you wonder if the executives at Universal have been chatting with Scott Rodger and Paul McCartney about price points. Worth it? Only you can decide, but the content is excellent and presentation looks very good."

Only people with too much money can pay over 100 quid for a 'special edition' of an album.

The rest of us head over to the torrent sites.
