[quote author=Bunna Dik link=board=general;num=1048570028;start=150#160 date=05/03/05 at 17:24:14]The Roxy ones rule. Bigtime!<br>The ones disagreeing don't get the point.<br>It perfectly fits with the music, and the other model covers posted on here are just banal and used just because they wanted nude models on the cover.<br>The poses on the Roxy Music covers complement the beauty of the female body imo.[/quote]<br>Oh, I was totally joking about the Blowfly covers I posted.  Those are intentionally nasty and trashy looking.  I actually like most of Roxy Music's covers.  I just find the one for Country Life particularly unpleasant to look at.

Don't you think a more "voluptous" chick is more appealing rather than a 6ft tall unrealistic representation of a WO-man?? Just curious kids... ;)<br>That pic may be relevant to the album in some way, I aint listened to it ya see, or possibly relevant to the whole image of Roxy Music, I haven't listened to it to be honest..I was just wondering!  ;D<br>

Image<br>As much as I love this album, the cover challenges my sexuality.

[quote author=Batchain115 link=board=general;num=1048570028;start=165#173 date=05/04/05 at 13:35:34]<br>By, as you say, "challenges [your] sexuality]" do you mean it offends you or it causes you to wonder, question or doubt your sexuality, madcow?8)<br><br>--Batchain[/quote]<br>Hahaha... I guess "offends" is what I was going for.  Really, I just think it's kind of an embarrassing thing to have someone find on your record shelf.
