BRYAN FERRY: OLYMPIA

For his thirteenth solo album, Bryan Ferry reconvenes the original lineup of Roxy Music (including elusive Brian Eno) for the first time in nearly four decades. Yet the cameo-packed Olympia shares far more with Ferry's recent solo stuff than it does with Roxy's early-'70s art rock; lusciously arranged lounge-funk workouts like Heartache By Numbers (co-written by Scissor Sisters) and Alphaville shimmer with the assurance of age, not the thrill of possibility. No Face, No Name, No Number, one track's called, and worried Ferry ain't.
