Billboard (p.72) - "[Ferry] brings his own style to covers of Tim Buckley's 'Song to the Siren' and Traffic's 'No Face, No Name, No Number.'"
Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he mature Ferry continues to smolder....His charm remains reasonably irresistible."
Clash (magazine) - "[A] healthy dose of blue-eyed soul that gets downright sleazy at times, with elements of funk, soul and blues and as much polish as it could soak up."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.78) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Ferry himself is on amazingly good form....He's become a master at creating atmospherics for his delicately trembling vocals to ride."
Uncut (magazine) (p.85) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The best tracks have a lightness of touch and make a virtue of the husk of Ferry's lunar croon..."

Bryan Ferry's Olympia began as a Roxy Music reunion album, the "follow-up" to 1982's Avalon. That said, it becomes Ferry's first album of new material in eight years and features contributions from original Roxy Music members Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, and Andy Mackay -- his first recorded collaboration with those musicians since 1973's For Your Pleasure. Released on Astralwerks, the set also includes guest spots from Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, Gary "Mani" Mounfield of the Stone Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, and Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, to mention a scant few. "You Can Dance" is the album's first single and video. Other notable tracks include a cover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren."
