, released in 1982, was Roxy Music's eighth (and, to date,
final) studio album. Recorded in 1981-82 at Compass Point Studios in
Nassau, Bahamas, it is generally regarded as the culmination of the
smoother, more adult-oriented sound of the band's later work. It was a
huge commercial success, hitting #1 in the UK (for 3 weeks) and staying
on the album charts for over a year.
