Allmusic.com gave Avalon a 5 star review:
Flesh + Blood suggested that Roxy Music were at the end of the line, but they regrouped and recorded the lovely Avalon, one of their finest albums. Certainly, the lush, elegant soundscapes of Avalon are far removed from the edgy avant-pop of their early records, yet it represents another landmark in their career. … It’s a rich, textured album and a graceful way to end the band’s career.
