Half-Speed Mastered & Cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios!
Remastered from the Original 1/4" Tapes!
Features the Hit Single "Love Is the Drug"!

Released in 1975, Siren produced the singles "Love Is the Drug" and "Both Ends Burning." "Love Is the Drug" became Roxy Music's highest-charting single in the US, reaching number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100. Siren is a captivating offering from Roxy Music, which draws you in ever-closer on each listen. Each Roxy Music album has been reissued with a fresh half-speed cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, London. To reflect the audio, all eight of the Roxy Music studio albums have had their artwork revised and with a gloss-laminated finish, so that each album is not just a record - it's a piece of art.

Abandoning the intoxicating blend of art rock and glam-pop that distinguished Stranded and Country Life, Roxy Music concentrate on Bryan Ferry's suave, charming crooner persona for the elegantly modern Siren.... Siren has a thematic consistency that works in its favor, and helps elevate its best songs - 'Sentimental Fool,' 'Both Ends Burning,' 'Just Another High' - as well as the album itself into the realm of classics.
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine,, 5/5 stars
The latest releases in the ongoing campaign to reissue the discography of Roxy Music lands at an inflection point for the band - the years when the group was slowly shedding the angular, glammy attack of their earliest work and incorporating a sleeker, more commercial sound that would result in chart hits like 'Dance Away' and 'Angel Eyes,' both songs from 1979's Manifesto. To get to that point, they had to get through Siren, another album of catty, neon-lit songs brimming with lustful intent and modern malaise, released first in 1975. Between the two, Ferry spun off on his own with a series of solo albums where he played the part of lounge lizard or jet setting rake. By the time Roxy Music reconvened to record Manifesto, Ferry brought those elements of his musical personality with him, as well as a mood of exhaustion. The so-called good life has left him wanting and desperate for any kind of connection. The music follows his lead with yearning tones and anxious energy. Both are the secret masterworks of Roxy's storied career, and they sound better than ever on these carefully remastered re-releases.
