On their second release, For Your Pleasure (1973), Roxy Music began to explore a little more of the dark side of the glamorous world that had become their lyrical and musical playground. The power struggle between Brian Eno wanting to move toward texture and Brian Ferry wanting to stay in more conventional rock territory is coming to the surface here though and the record would be the last with Eno onboard.

However, its those same differences that truly make it another extraordinary Roxy Music record, one that demonstrates even more clearly than the debut how avant-garde ideas can flourish in a pop setting. This is especially evident in the driving singles "Do the Strand" and "Editions of You," which pulsate with raw energy and jarring melodic structures. Roxy also illuminate the slower numbers, such as the eerie "In Every Dream Home a Heartache," with atonal, shimmering synthesizers, textures that were unexpected and innovative at the time of its release.

For Your Pleasure walks a fine line between the experimental and the accessible, but unfortunately it would be the last Roxy Music record that this economy worked to perfection.
