There are two headlines for Olympia, Bryan Ferrys 13th solo album. The first is that its Ferrys first collection of primarily original material since 1994s Mamouna -- of the ten songs only Tim Buckley's Song to the Siren is from another author -- the second is that among the many collaborators here are Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, and Andy MacKay, all original members of Roxy Music, their presence suggesting a return to the chilly art of Roxys earliest records. Neither headline tells the real story: Olympia is Ferrys most seductive album since Avalon, a luxurious collection of softly stylized sophistication. Instead of pushing into new territory,Ferry focuses on refinement, polishing his signatures -- primarily songs so slow they seem to float, and also the occasional high-end piece of pristine pop-funk -- until theyre seamless, the textures shifting so subtly that when the chorus of Heartache by Numbers turns eerie, the change in atmosphere is almost subliminal. Such command of mood is a tell-tale sign of a quiet perfectionist, but Olympia doesnt feel fussy; its unruffled and casually elegant, its pleasing familiarity reflecting the persistence of an old master honing his craft.
