Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music: Street Life: (their collective) 20 Greatest Hits

My pal Matt is overdue for a Guest Post.  He is a bit short on time.  But from a recent email to me regarding this record and my invitation to him, I will use his short - and sweet - reply as his Guest Post.  Like Matthew himself - it is poignant, to the point, accurate, and not subtle, refreshingly abrupt, and well-stated:  "All greatest hits compilations defile the artistic expression of the album. Primitive precursor to purchasing single song MP3s online, the idea that you cherry pick your favorite songs instead of listening to the song in the context of an entire album.  That being said, [this record is] still a valid Introduction to Roxy Music for the uninitiated."
