Bryan Ferry: Frantic      
  May 15, 2012

Sounds like perfection is Ferry's usual standard ... What else could you expect, after having heard Hiroshima or San Simeon ??? Performance is brilliant, surprising, deep and captivating.

CNET reviews had classified this one as one of the best recorded album ever. This was for the stereo dimension, which ruled for years. We have been facing a new format ... more
