Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 1/8/99, pp.64-65
" sounds like the freshest rock album that never existed. The feather-boa anthems (from Lou Reed, Brian Eno and Roxy Music) still conjure the delicate decadence of that era's fashion and mood..." - Rating: A

In the '90s, the '70s nostalgia boom finally kicked in, working its way into fashion, TV, and of course, music and film. VELVET GOLDMINE is a sterling example of those last two media, a music-oriented film centered around '70s style and powered by a glam-centric soundtrack that features both the original era's artisans and new worshippers at the '70s altar. The pounding piano and art school dandy aura of Roxy Music's "Virginia Plain" is cultural ground zero for VELVET GOLDMINE. Roxy synthesist Brian Eno contributes one of his early pop tracks, "Needle in the Camel's Eye." Largely forgotten Roxy peers Cockney Rebel are represented by CR vocalist Steve Harley's "Make Me Smile." Naturally, no glam-oriented compilation would be complete without a cut from the original star-child Marc Bolan, and that requirement is ably filled by the presence of T-Rex's "Diamond Meadows."
