Boys And Girls
Label: Virgin Records
After Roxy Music called it a day with Avalon, Ferry returned to a solo career with this quintessentially 1980s album. The first half is suave New Wave make-out music (including the hit "Slave to Love"), while the second half is darker and heavier on guitars. This hasn't dated as well as Ferry's earlier work, but with the '80s revival in full swing this could still be the sound of tomorrow.
