"You Can Dance" starts things off with a Roxy Music sample, which is fitting because Phil Manzanera, Brian Eno and Andy Mackay from Bryan Ferry's old band show up to lend a hand. Joining them is an all-star cadre that includes members of Radiohead, Groove Armada, Stone Roses, Scissor Sisters and others. That said, this is still Ferry's show: He artfully croaks smartly conceived lyrics through a mix of rock muscle, dance grooves and washes of ambient sound. Top marks go to "Alphaville," "Reason or Rhyme," "Tender Is the Night" and the cinematic makeover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren."
