Lesley Gore's debut album was rushed out on the heels of her debut smash, "It's My Party," and suffered from being made into a contrived concept album of sorts. Most of the songs were about -- as the title indicated -- crying, since the key hook of "It's My Party" had Gore boasting that she could cry if she wanted to. The effect, if only temporarily, was to make her out to be something of a novelty artist, even if one of the songs other than "It's My Party" (its inferior follow-up, "Judy's Turn to Cry") turned out be a big hit as well. Aside from the limited lyrical themes, a bigger problem was that the material, other than the two big hits, largely veered between tame treatments of pop standards ("Misty," "Cry Me a River," "What Kind of Fool Am I") and unmemorable soppy pop ballads by contemporary writers that tapped into the weaker aspects of doo wop-influenced girl group music. At this point, Gore seemed to be as interested in being an adult torch singer as a teen rocker, but her teenaged pipes were simply far more suited toward girl group-style songs than trying to be another Julie London. The big flaw is one that seems obvious in retrospect, but probably wasn't even seen by many who were helping to direct her career at the time: Aside from the hits, nothing here rocked respectably, or swung as Quincy Jones' arrangements were capable of doing, though "Cry Me a River" wasn't too bad. Gore would, perhaps to the surprise of many, go on to establish a respectable career with a series of hits that didn't always milk the self-pity bucket, though this first effort gave all the indication of her being a one-hit wonder.

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.

Bossa-nova, la vague éternelle
