When the band's major-label effort emerged, the band members were quoted in interviews as saying they were aware of the post-Nirvana '90s cliché where a highly regarded indie rock band signed to a major and then seemingly disappeared after a mediocre effort. Unfortunately, that's just about what happened to the band itself, and it's little wonder why -- Freak*on*ica, on the heels of three brilliant albums, was practically a joke, sounding more like a commercial band attempting to cover Girls Against Boys than the group itself. That's not to say it's not enjoyable at points, especially with the quite excellent "Exorcisto," but instead of the thick, tense energy and inventive arrangements of the past, Freak*on*ica is all too clean and crisp, a bizarre slice of techno-metal far more appropriate for the likes of Garbage, who the band opened for around that time. Part of the blame lies squarely with the choice of producer -- instead of the productive Ted Niceley/Janney partnership that had been in place since Venus Luxure, the band either opted for or was assigned Nick Launay. The Australian's credentials at commercial but smart rock & roll were unquestioned, but either he and his crew smoothed out all the edges or let the group dig its own particular grave. Indeed, it should be said that a fair number of songs, right from the start with the fairly drab "Park Avenue" and "Pleasurized," lack a real spark. Scott McCloud's singing sounds petulant instead of threatening, the occasional weird blast of guitar or sample noise loop sound too clean by half, and the whole thing is an unfortunately classic example of what happens when a band with its own distinct sound and style gets wrung through the commercial wringer to no good purpose. Little wonder that Girls Against Boys realized their mistake and practically celebrated their eventual depature from Geffen to the skies.

Le rock progressif en 10 albums

Au cours des 40 dernières années, le rock progressif a connu le sommet des charts, le sérieux des pupitres ou les honneurs de l’appellation art rock, élargissant son lexique à travers des influences insaisissables, toujours en reconfiguration. Si, aujourd’hui, le genre n’est plus revendiqué avec la même ferveur qu’hier, on peut toujours observer son empreinte chez des artistes allant de Tool à Kanye West. Qobuz vous présente dix albums majeurs du prog rock, dont le rayonnement n’est pas près de faiblir.

Curtis Mayfield, Black Music Matters

Guitariste esthète adulé par Hendrix, chanteur au falsetto démentiel vénéré par Prince et songwriter de haute volée, Curtis Mayfield sculptait des symphonies mêlant funk, gospel et soul en cinémascope. Vingt ans après sa mort, sa musique engagée colle toujours aussi bien à l’Amérique.

Nashville au féminin

Pas facile de jouer des coudes sur la scène de la machiste Music City, berceau de la country music, lorsqu’on est une femme. Au fil des ans, certaines ont tout de même réussi à faire bouger les lignes et les mentalités. Comme ces dix-là, pionnières et révolutionnaires ayant posé – et imposé – leurs santiags sur la table de Nashville.
