The History of The Albums – n°361

This episode is probably one of the most significant of the 60's for popular music, not in the purely musical sense, nor in the album format, but in the role of the music and entertainment industry. While Rock and Roll definitely changed the music of young people around the world in the 1950s, the music industry regularly looked for innovative approaches to capitalize on the money and create highly profitable products. The phenomenon of Beatlemania ... read more

If the second half of the 60's overshadowed Jazz because of Pop Rock, that doesn't mean that some legends were not born there. Pianist McCoy Tyner is the perfect definition of a crucial influence of this period but also afterwards for modern Jazz. In my opinion, McCoy Tyner is even more than that, he is without question one of the greatest pianists in the history of Jazz, just like Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum, Bill Evans, Bud Powell, ... read more

The Melodic Blue is like a recipe to potentially make a great feast but when you taste the final result you have this impression that some ingredient is missing or that the cooking is not necessarily mastered. If Baby Keem didn't succeed in crossing this step, there are still some satisfying points if not a really thrilling album experience...

Hykeem Jamaal Carter, better known as Baby Keem, is purely that kind of new wave rapper. That is to say a modern artist rather versatile, relaxed and ... read more

Cream is the embodiment of a legendary trio shaking up the codes of Rock forever. Disraeli Gears remains as its spokesman. Formed by guitarist Eric Clapton, singer and bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker, Cream is known first and foremost for being the very first "Supergroup" of all time, a term given to a group made up of already famous musicians. Clapton was already considered one of the best guitarists with his experiences in the ... read more

Drake continues his downfall on Certified Lover Boy, a compilation of ultra comfortable songs that brings nothing special.

Is it possible to master the art of sass as much as Drake? It's been a few years now that the Toronto native has had this status of artist as much inescapable as irritable, because we must admit that Drake has raked up so many records that it is enough to put him on a featurings to make the sales figures of a frontman jump. When Drake proclaims himself the "Certified ... read more

Sometimes I Might Be Introvert is the odyssey of Litte Simz, an accomplished artist who keeps proving her immense talent. Through 1 hour of 5 star travel, the London native delivers a moving experience without ever losing sight of her multiple struggles. A real treasure.

If Little Simz is the real darling of the public, it is simply because she is one of the most talented female Hip Hop artists of the last few years, and well beyond. Since A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons (2015), in the ... read more

On Donda, Kanye West finds the right way through a giant mass where the whole Hip Hop scene is invited. Unlike his recent misguidance, Kanye reaches out, reflects and takes responsibility. Donda's adventure is an eclectic one where faith and worldview are confronted through deeply emotional soundscapes.

The arrival of a new album of Kanye is always the subject of a media tsunami, this one was of course no exception. On the contrary, its author feeds on the phenomenon to make everything sound ... read more

As a woman's life changes with the arrival of a child, the album If I Can't Have Love I Want Power is the epitome of Halsey's significant evolution. The author immerses us in a poignant and heartbreaking experience in the midst of motherhood

One thing is undeniable, Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, a.k.a Halsey, never has her/they tongue in her/they pocket, defying any social taboo. The New Jersey native has established herself as one of the most popular artists of the second half of the last ... read more

Oh Lorde, sadly made another one.. Power Solar had everything to warm our hearts, but it is limited by too little content. Lorde's performance is the very symbol of this first failure.

For once, it's necessary to go straight to the heart of the matter because there's no need today to really introduce Lorde. The New Zealand native has clearly (and normally) conquered the world by becoming one of the most talented pop artists of the last decade. Her previous album, Melodrama, put her on a ... read more

It is always very complex, sometimes impossible for an artist to leave her comfort zone, the one that made her known to explore new horizons, moreover with a concept as complex as the main task. Yet Kristin Hayter managed to climb her third step with genius, to offer us one of the most thrilling, terrifying and sensational musical experiences of the year.

Kristin Hayter is a woman who has been damaged by life and has become one of the most talented artists of the last 5 years. A victim of ... read more

On Happier Than Ever, Billie expands and refines her formula, giving it a bigger dimension than in the past. Thematically, this new album is overwhelming, urgent and poignant, showing all the will of its author to break the codes of the Pop.

The interest of the music industry for very young talents has always existed. So has the self-taught development of this type of artist. However, the case of Billie Eilish is to be classified among the exceptions, as out of the ordinary. Whether you like ... read more

Today we are going to dive into the Portuguese music through one of the most important albums in my opinion: Guitarra Portuguesa. Released in 1967, this album is like the cornerstone that will lead to the peak years of the musical style. Traditional Portuguese music is of course distinguished by several sub-styles, of which Fado is one of the most widespread and popular. To understand it, we have to go back to the Baroque period when Portugal ... read more

The adventure was only temporary, only 2 years and 1 month, but Buffalo Springfield is an ultimate reference of West Coast Rock, as much for the band as for the members who founded it. Influential actor of Folk Rock, Country Rock and Psychedelic, the Californian group is a mix of Americans and Canadians who initiated the beginnings of Stephen Sills, Neil Young or Richie Furay. The latter will mark the history in a more significant way in various ... read more

Sling is a proof of maturity for Clairo, it is also a delicious adventure to be consumed without moderation. This new album delivers an almost impeccable instrumentation, where the singer puts her angelic voice and her writing in ideal conditions.

[I also invite you to read my previous review on the Doors' first and eponymous album, in order to better understand their beginning and this one]. The very end of 1967 marks the moment when Jim Morrison, bad boy and icon of Californian counter-culture sex appeal, slips almost definitively into the dark side. It can be described as a combination of triggers. To understand the importance of the chapter that will forever change the future of the band, ... read more

[I also invite you to read my previous review on Pet Sounds, in order to better understand the context of this review]. The story of the Beach Boys, led by Brian Wilson will turn from dream to nightmare. Smiley Smile is the symbol of a triggering of cause and effect that will make the band slowly lose the leadership they had acquired. To understand it, Brian Wilson had just created Pet Sounds in 1966, a marvel of pop music considered one of the ... read more

"It's true what you say my friend! and I share your opinion about Clapton's status. In fact he created such an aura in the 60's, as someone invisible, free and then he was such an actor of technical innovation that he dragged his legacy until today. In my opinion, during the Cream era, guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, George Harrison (even if more minimalist) and of course Muddy Waters are much better overall than Eric Clapton @ocrakraut"
