All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Without Brian Eno, Roxy Music immediately became less experimental, yet it remained adventurous, as Stranded illustrates.

    First post-Eno Roxy album

    Stranded made it out of the studio quickly after Eno left Roxy in '73. While many critics and fans were skeptical about Roxy's longevity after his departure, Stranded emerged as yet another fabulous offering with new sounds. Eddie Jobson's violin, synth and keyboard work did not replace Eno, but contributed a style all his own. Phil Manzanera's guitar work, particularly on Amazona is instantly recognizable and catchy. Song for Europe put MacKay in the writing credits with a great song. Mother of Pearl represents some of Ferry's finest lyrical work.
