Exclamation Re: Roxy Music vs. T.Rex!

This one's not easy for me because both bands have released a number of tracks I really like. I rank my favourites by the two as follows:

1. Love Is the Drug - Roxy Music
2. Metal Guru - T.Rex
3. Hot Love - T.Rex
4. More Than This - Roxy Music
5. Rabbit Fighter - T.Rex
6. Avalon - Roxy Music
7. Jeepster - T.Rex

So it's close but T.Rex has the edge. But on the basis of image/style, I prefer that of Roxy Music. So I'm still not sure which way to vote.

Re: Roxy Music vs. T.Rex!

Had to log in for this one.....voted Roxy Music...though I am a fan of the early Rex material Roxy is a better band overall. Excellent musicianship with Manzanera and the players that passed through the band in their career.....Mackay, Jobson, etc. I have all the original vinyl as well as cd's. Saw them in Chicago on the Avalon tour in 1983.
For me Rex was not in the same league though they had many fans.
I actually prefer the early hippie psych folk-rock that Bolan did before he went glam rock. I have the early lp's on first vinyl ....Unicorn and Beard of Stars...stil trying to come across Prophets and My People on original vinyl. The later ones starting with T REX changed into a pop style glam rock that echoed Bowie at times, though Electric Warrior is a classic in that style.
