You disappoint me, Matt
Why should a short discography prevent an artist from getting in? The Zombies are arguably one of the greatest groups in rock history and I see their induction as maybe a sign of maturity (though that's probably overly optimistic) for the R&RHOF, since they more typically go for the opposite side of the spectrum- artists like Kiss, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, who sold tons of albums even though everyone acknowledges that they're complete garbage.
I might be giving the R&RHOF too much credit but The Zombies' induction implies an acknowledgement of their greatness and importance despite the fact that they only released 2 albums which didn't sell (though both "She's Not There" and especially "Time of the Season" share the distinction of being songs that *everyone* knows and loves, even if they don't know any of The Zombies' other songs, or even that it was The Zombies who recorded those 2).
And as I mentioned recently, I don't listen to Roxy Music anymore but I think they definitely deserve to be inducted (they're objectively a great group- just not really my cuppa tea) and can't imagine what your objection might be. Unless you don't think they sold enough albums to qualify and again, that shouldn't be more important than the universally acknowledged consistently high quality of their output or their influence/groundbreaking nature.
