Transformer and "Walk on the Wild Side" were both major hits in 1972, to the surprise of both Lou Reed and the music industry, and with Reed suddenly a hot commodity, he used his newly won clout to make the most ambitious album of his career, Berlin. Berlin was the musical equivalent of a drug-addled kid set loose in a candy store; the album's songs, which form a loose story line about a doomed romance between two chemically fueled bohemians, were fleshed out with a huge, boomy production (Bob Ezrin at his most grandiose) and arrangements overloaded with guitars, keyboards, horns, strings, and any other kitchen sink that was handy (the session band included Jack Bruce, Steve Winwood, Aynsley Dunbar, and Tony Levin). And while Reed had often been accused of focusing on the dark side of life, he and Ezrin approached Berlin as their opportunity to make The Most Depressing Album of All Time, and they hardly missed a trick. This all seemed a bit much for an artist who made such superb use of the two-guitars/bass/drums lineup with the Velvet Underground, especially since Reed doesn't even play electric guitar on the album; the sheer size of Berlin ultimately overpowers both Reed and his material. But if Berlin is largely a failure of ambition, that sets it apart from the vast majority of Reed's lesser works; Lou's vocals are both precise and impassioned, and though a few of the songs are little more than sketches, the best -- "How Do You Think It Feels," "Oh, Jim," "The Kids," and "Sad Song" -- are powerful, bitter stuff. It's hard not to be impressed by Berlin, given the sheer scope of the project, but while it earns an A for effort, the actual execution merits more of a B-.

J.J. Cale und sein abgeklärter Blues

Auch mehr als fünf Jahre nach J.J. Cales Tod ist es unmöglich, von seiner Musik abzulassen. Er, der von Clapton verehrt wurde, verbrachte einen Teil seines Lebens in einem Mobilheim, und auch heute noch gilt er mit seiner atypischen Kombination aus Blues, Folk, Country und Jazz als einer der einflussreichsten Außenseiter des Rock.

Esa-Pekka Salonens Studioaufnahmen: ein Paradox

Nick Cave, das Unkraut auf der Starwiese

Nick Cave und seine Bad Seeds gelten nach wie vor als eines der produktivsten Abenteuer aus der Postpunk-Ära. Schon Ende der 80er Jahre erreichte die betörend tiefe Stimme des Australiers einen gewissen Höhepunkt unter all den wütenden Wiederaufnahmen, Klavierballaden und schweißgetränktem Rock’n’roll. Im Laufe der Jahre wurde der Cave immer mehr Crooner, irgendetwas zwischen einem punkigen Frank Sinatra und einem enthaltsamen Johnny Cash…
