* MagnumOpus: Most fans will point to ''For Your Pleasure'' for the Eno era and ''Country Life'' for the Post-Eno albums.

* AwesomeMusic: Most fans won't dispute that the first five albums count, and ''Avalon'' is hailed as a return to form as well.

* FaceOfTheBand: Bryan Ferry, to the point where his solo albums were musically interchangable with the Roxy Music album prior to them. Several compilations collect both and it's not always obvious to the casual listener whether the song is a Roxy Music song or a Ferry solo track. When discussing their early works, Music/BrianEno is also certain to pop up.

** Several band members have said they thought "Pyjamarama" was rushed and a bad choice of single. They liked the song, just thought that the recording and arrangement was not up to scratch due to being tired from touring. They didn't include it on "For Your Pleasure" for this reason either. This is why, when it came to their first singles collection, they opted to do a remix of it with new sax parts and different stereo effects, and this has appeared on most GreatestHits compilations since. The original didn't appear on CD until The Thrill Of It All box set, and later on The Complete Studio Recordings. Despite the band's criticisms, "Pyjamarama" is a favourite song of many fans, although many like the remix more than the original.

* NamesTheSame: Both Roxy and {{U2}} have had songs called "All I Want Is You".
** Not only that, but Roxy Music's Angel Eyes and Abba's Angeleyes were in the charts at the same time. Humorously, the band would later release a single called Take A Chance With Me, reminding people of Take A Chance On Me by Abba.

** There's also a song called "The Space Between" on ''Avalon'', unrelated to the song of the same name by Dave Matthews Band.

* CreatorBacklash: Ferry has mentioned his dislike of first album track "Would You Believe?" in interviews on several occasions. He felt it would make people think the band were some kind of rock and roll revival band.
