Roxy Music embraced the arts like no other. Their look and style were just as important to them as their carefully constructed sleek sound. Much of the New Wave and New Romantic movement can be traced back to Roxy; in fact they may have more imitators than any other artist on this list. Following Brian Eno’s departure, their later years generated a blue eyed soul feel rather than their earlier experimental forays but regardless of which direction they went to their music was always the most carefully crafted of their era. Considering the respect held by Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno within the music industry, this can only bolster their chances.
