EDIT - Finally

Ok, here are my thoughts (maybe feelings)

Dylan is one of those artists that has accomplished almost everything. He has an extensive discography (with at least six records filling every single list about the best rock albums of all time) a Nobel prize, an Oscar and a long list of personal records. In fact there is not a single one music lover over thirty years of age that is going to doubt his relevance as a musical figure. Otherwise, I have always had the feeling that for the ... read more

There are three things you need to listen from this record:

1. The astonishing The Who performance. Recorded just in the middle between "The Who Sell Out" and "Tommy" the band was already confident enough to deliver an act capable of showing all their strengths. Daltrey was getting to the place where he was going to put their soul as a performer in terms of presence and interpretation, Townshend always knew he was the special gifted boy from the bunch, Entwistle was getting ... read more

Disclaimer: I am not a fan of the Beatles first half catalog. I have always felt that after Rubber Soul they really went where the other bands had no idea they could go at that time. In terms of lyrical poetry and creative process they really nailed it with Revolver, Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album and Revolver (Yeah,sorry, Let It Be is more complicated for me).

But I have always felt the first half was too poppy, easy (six of the fourteen tracks are covers in this album), simple and ... read more

Folk, electric and then country. Whoever says Dylan has always sounded the same way, is totally wrong. 

After his successful and controversial electric phase it was surprising (as the electric twist also was) to see Dylan making a twist so early again. And let's say that Nashville Skyline was not only a change in his musical approach but also in his way of singing (many people say it was because he quit smoking but that is not really clear, actually it is more probable to be still related ... read more

I have heard this album multiple times, believe me I have tried to be patient but I cannot stop feeling that this record is highly overrated. 87 points by the critics! Come on!!!, actually 74 from users seems a bit high too... I get it, the guy was just coming out from a period that everybody hated (even when I disagree with the degree of hate to those albums) but "Infidels" is in no way an outstanding comeback.

The obvious highlight is "Jokerman" which goes into a ... read more

Despite some obvious caveats, this is a nice return, extremely simple in terms of musical approach but also totally enjoyable as Goldfinger has always been.

The album starts strong, "Infinite" is hell of a good opener, great guitars, fast drums and a killer chorus ready to stick in your head for the next couple of hours after you play it. They manage themselves to give you a more "modern" track and at the same time sound as they usually sound. "The City" is pure ... read more

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Los últimos son JVLIAN, ya separados pero la rompían toda rota. Un combinado jazz, neo soul, funk, rock, psicodelia y rap/hip hop todo en uno. Una de esas bandas que se cruzan todos tipos que tocan muy bien y encima son muuuy inventivos. Me hacen acordar a la ATR VANDA que me hace acordar a Spinetta Jade. No solo mezclan todo eso sino que le dan un toque extremadamente sombrío. La producción es tremenda y se nota en todos lados, pero sobre todo en la facilidad con la que meten cambios abruptos de la nada. Calculo que a lo largo de este disco hay un concepto, hay cabos que pude atar, pero la verdad no me he sentado a analizarlo en profundidad:

Ahora procedo a recomendarte lo que realmente considero muy bueno, que se aleja de la concepción tradicional del rock argentino, pero algo mantiene por supuesto.

El primero que ya debés saber que me encanta es Ca7riel. El tipo mezcla neo-soul, funk y rock con hip hop, digamos que el abstract hip hop argentino, pero rapea de puta madre y toca la guitarra casi como un dios, y todo eso con una esencia muy propia y comunicando algo realmente interesante. Entiendo que ya lo has escuchado cuando te lo recomendé pero va de nuevo por las dudas.

Juan Mango, de Usted Señalemelo, tiene su side project solista que es tremendo. El le dice post synthpop y la verdad es que es exactamente así como suena. Es el novio de la hija del Flaco Spinetta, Vera, y en su música se puede ver porqué jajaja.

De cualquier manera yo no soy tan conocedor como aparento! Recién me estoy iniciando en esto de la música y querer ser melómano. Pero en mi opinión, Charly es hasta los 90's, más allá no iría al menos que seas muy fan. En cuánto al rock argentino actual, está difícil si no te llama la atención El Mató, son como los iniciadores de este nuevo rock muy ligado a lo indie, y todo lo que suena hoy es de alguna manera muy cercano e influenciado por ello (ya hay un libro sobre este movimiento y se llama como una canción de ellos, imagínate). Personalmente, los mejores actos de "rock" argentino hoy por hoy ya no pasan por el rock. El término se ha vuelto más una forma de ver y hacer las cosas que un género en sí. Entonces, si nos atenemos a rock "rock", pocas cosas, el debut del Club Audiovisual si te cabe el shoegaze, Usted Señalemelo y Marilina Bertoldi. Después tenés cosas que rozan mucho más con el pop como Conociendo Rusia o Bandalos Chinos, que te puede llegar a cebar. +
