Flowing with a soft, dreamlike scope and haunting melodies, Avalon was released in 1982 by Roxy Music. For me, this hypnotic album marks some of my enduring college memories. Still to this day, Avalon is some of the most romantic music I’ve ever heard. To quote songwriter and vocalist Bryan Ferry, “Avalon is part of the King Arthur legend and is a very romantic thing.” When King Arthur dies, the Queens ferry him off to Avalon, which is sort of an enchanted island. It's the ultimate romantic fantasy place.”
Avalon is my latest selection for an album cover redesign. One of Roxy Music’s best, this album is strongly recommended.
