From the moment the Pyromania guitars herald open the title track on Celebrity Skin, it's clear Hole no longer is tortured. Gone are the roaring guitars and noise, the pain and the anguish that informed Pretty on the Inside and Live Through This. Some angst remains, but it's buried under a glaze of shiny guitars and hazy melodies, all intended to evoke the heyday of Californian pop in the late '70s. Conceptually, it's a bold move for a band that's nearly synonymous with grunge, but the makeover doesn't quite work. Part of the reason is that Hole's music was always compelling as nakedly cathartic spectacle -- and that's exactly what has been excised on Celebrity Skin. In the past, Courtney Love pushed her emotions to the forefront, and the sheer forcefulness of her personality disguised the anonymity of her bandmates. A toned-down Love still may not be able to carry a tune, but there's little grit to her performance on Celebrity Skin, so she effortlessly blends with the faceless musical support -- which is strange, considering her overpowering public image. Walking the line between soft rock and confessional grunge was a difficult task regardless, and to its credit, Hole -- with the assistance of producer Michael Beinhorn and consultant Billy Corgan, who is credited with co-writing five songs and essentially pioneered the very sound of Celebrity Skin with his Smashing Pumpkins albums -- has created an album that sounds like an arena rock monster, but the hooks sink only halfway in, so it doesn't have much impact. It is a complete makeover, but instead of metamorphosing into a new band, Hole has unwittingly neutered itself.

Les Grands Angles...
Le grunge en 10 albums

Il y a trente ans, Seattle devenait la capitale du rock. La faute au grunge. Cet esprit “sale” et je-m’en-foutiste né sur les cendres du punk, du heavy metal et du rock alternatif passa en un éclair de l’underground au succès mondial. Trop vite récupéré par un système qu’il reniait, le genre s’étouffa dans sa propre caricature à la fin des 90’s. Retour sur 10 albums qui ont marqué le mouvement.

Metallica, le sentier de la gloire

Avec 125 millions d’albums vendus à travers le monde, dont une trentaine de millions pour le “Black Album”, Metallica est l’un des phénomènes pop les plus inattendus des 50 dernières années. Comment un groupe de metal aux chansons structurées de manière aussi alambiquée est-il parvenu à se jucher au niveau des produits de Madonna ou Michael Jackson ? Avec de l’intuition et beaucoup de détermination. Retour aux sources du groupe de metal le plus important de l’histoire.

10 légendes du blues

Le 21 juin, on célèbre les 20 ans de la disparition d’un des rois du blues : John Lee Hooker. Mais le géant n’a pas emporté le blues dans sa tombe. Cette musique enregistrée depuis plus d’un siècle continue à irriguer toute la musique pop, et à produire de grands disques (comme le dernier album des Black Keys). Il est temps de réviser les classiques, en dix portraits de bluesmen historiques, dont une blueswoman.
