Great band. I really like the bass sound on this one. Nice unhurried atmosphere.

Not a bad song, but I can't divorce that bass line from "Sugar Pie Honey Bunch" in my brain.

 

And now, neither will you. :D

Always liked AF,  but this track is growing on me more and more...

 I really like this. I don't get the comments that this has no hook or that it is boring.  Wow.  {#Dancingbanana_2}

The arguing over Roxy Music (below) just makes me want to hear some Roxy Music.  Maybe follow it up with some Nile Rodgers.

No way. Those bands understand hooks...soul...giving listeners some provocative reason to listen.

This band is muted, boring, souless, and it won't stop! Sound like it was created by a computer algorithm.

Oops, sorry... I think my comment should have been more to Fredrilly!
Bubble gum and Roxy Music?... you're definitely missing out.  That's like saying Bowie is a just a lightweight Top 40 popster hit maker ;-)

@carmikin - I'm not agreeing or disagreeing about any comparisons, but it sounds like it's possible you're not as familiar with all of Roxy Music's material or ground breaking history.
... Now THAT is something I'd agree with in a comparison with AF... but both being in a positive and ground breaking way. The show, the feel, and the songs, all melded rogether, it all moves all history with both bands, setting new standards and showing what can truly be achieved outside of the mainstream. 
... Do yourself a favor and don't miss out or discount early Roxy Music's influence on the current indie scene. Like Bowie, Eno, early genesis Peter Gabriel... Roxy Music helped put real presence  and creativity on that stage every show.
That's all. Enjoy :-)

Seems whenever I hear something nice and uncover the playlist behind what I'm working on the band is "Artic Monkeys"... Guess they will be going places and soon be -too- popular for the RP cognoscenti... Still, good tunes iz good tunes...

Keep up the good work...RP...

I'll take a wild guess that you didn't/don't like Talking Heads, David Bowie, or REM, either.  I wasn't particularly impressed with AF before this album….but just happened to listen/watch the youtube teaser- done as a soundtrack to Black Orpheus - and was riveted .

I can see why Bowie is a fan. Reflektor is a throwback to the 70s…when LP's had a story to tell and we listened to them as a whole with good headphones.

 
I have it on vinyl, and it smacks of the 80s to me...

...In a good (Talking Heads/David Bowie/REM) way!
