Roxy Music, ‘Avalon’ (100 Best Albums of the Eighties)

“More Than This,” the opening song, was initially poppier, according to Manzanera. “Halfway through, Bryan rebelled, and it was all scrapped and simplified incredibly,” he says. “I must say, I was concerned that we weren’t going to have a hit single from that album. And obviously, wanting to make it in America, we needed to have a single to break us. But in the context of the whole album, Bryan obviously had a broader view in the back of his mind. By the time it was done, it fit in much better with everything.”
