Re: Ferry solo albums (inc question for Paul)

John, after reading your post yesterday I went home after work and put the IYM album on again, and.....
I still think it's a great album! It is a different style to his other works as you say but for me it really rocks! I agree with you that 'love me madly' is the pick of the bunch and i also think 'Tokyo Joe' is a stormer. I tend to think that some of BF's later works were maybe a bit over-produced for my liking but that's just my opinion, others will surely disagree.
I did buy 'olympia' and my thoughts are pretty much identical to yours, 3 or 4 good songs, others ok, play it once every couple of months or so.
On another note, have you ever heard the song 'Bloody Kisses' (a death in the family) by Type O Negative?
To my ears there are defintely shades of Roxy in there. If you like 'In every dreamhome' and Bitter sweet' (2 of my faves) then you may well like it. The song is on youtube if you want to check it out.

Re: Ferry solo albums (inc question for Paul)

I think he was trying to crack Amerca (again !)when he recorded IYM.I got the impression he was writing more straight forward radio friendly songs and got rid of all the experimental stuff. It has a Talking Heads, punchy sound to it rather than a Bryan sound. But I still lkie it. Although none of the songs came over too well live. Dunno why. Tomorrow, Tokyo, Love Me Madly, In Your Mind are great songs. The rest are Okish. But thats fairly normal for me with Bryan and Roxy albums. I normally love half, dislike 2 or 3 and the rest are OK. Same goes for Olympia. I love the slower songs, and the rest I'm not too fussed about.
