Biffy Clyro's 2013 album, Opposites, is the band's sixth studio effort and follows up the band's hugely successful 2009 Mercury Prize-nominated release, Only Revolutions. Whether appreciated as a double- or single-disc album (the band released both versions), Opposites is a sprawling, ambitious work that once again finds the Scottish rock trio balancing its prog rock inclinations with its undeniable talent for mainstream, radio-ready pop. In that sense, Biffy Clyro are certainly one of the most album-oriented, '70s-style rock acts of their generation -- though their sound is hardly retro. On the contrary, with lead singer/guitarist Simon Neil belting in a thick brogue over the band's knotty, metal-influenced arrangements, Biffy Clyro come off more like a Scottish version of Fugazi than, say, a classic rock band like Rush, although there is a twinge of nerd-rock power here, too. There is something very concept album-esque about Biffy Clyro's Opposites, especially when taken in the entire two-disc format. It's very laser light show-friendly, as many of the songs here are heavy with loud guitars, frenetic drumming, and intricate, multi-layered arrangements. Primarily, however, the album rides on the kind of anthemic, crowd-pleasing pop songs that made Only Revolutions such a success. Where last time we got the melodic bombast of "Mountains" and "Many of Horror," here we get the equally as wide-eyed "Sounds Like Balloons" and the romantic, soundtrack-ready "Biblical." Ultimately, Biffy Clyro's gift as a band is to craft songs that balance immediately catchy hooks with complex arrangements that only help to reinforce the drama of the pop moment. Thankfully, there are plenty of these dichotomous yet rapturous moments on Opposites. ~ Matt Collar

Descriptif de l'album

Biffy Clyro's 2013 album, Opposites, is the band's sixth studio effort and follows up the band's hugely successful 2009 Mercury Prize-nominated release, Only Revolutions. Whether appreciated as a double- or single-disc album (the band released both versions), Opposites is a sprawling, ambitious work that once again finds the Scottish rock trio balancing its prog rock inclinations with its undeniable talent for mainstream, radio-ready pop. In that sense, Biffy Clyro are certainly one of the most album-oriented, '70s-style rock acts of their generation -- though their sound is hardly retro. On the contrary, with lead singer/guitarist Simon Neil belting in a thick brogue over the band's knotty, metal-influenced arrangements, Biffy Clyro come off more like a Scottish version of Fugazi than, say, a classic rock band like Rush, although there is a twinge of nerd-rock power here, too. There is something very concept album-esque about Biffy Clyro's Opposites, especially when taken in the entire two-disc format. It's very laser light show-friendly, as many of the songs here are heavy with loud guitars, frenetic drumming, and intricate, multi-layered arrangements. Primarily, however, the album rides on the kind of anthemic, crowd-pleasing pop songs that made Only Revolutions such a success. Where last time we got the melodic bombast of "Mountains" and "Many of Horror," here we get the equally as wide-eyed "Sounds Like Balloons" and the romantic, soundtrack-ready "Biblical." Ultimately, Biffy Clyro's gift as a band is to craft songs that balance immediately catchy hooks with complex arrangements that only help to reinforce the drama of the pop moment. Thankfully, there are plenty of these dichotomous yet rapturous moments on Opposites. ~ Matt Collar

Nils Frahm, le piano debout

Salué par les critiques de la musique classique comme par les amateurs d’expériences électroniques, le talent de Nils Frahm a mis tout le monde d’accord ces dix dernières années. Qu’il utilise un orgue d’église ou un synthétiseur flanqué de pédales d’effet, le pianiste allemand regarde toujours vers l’avant et c’est pour ça qu’il semble si séduisant.

Nick Cave, mauvaise graine de star

Nick Cave et ses Bad Seeds restent l’une des aventures les plus prolifiques de l’ère post punk. Dès la fin des années 80, le magnétisme caverneux du chanteur australien atteignait un certain paroxysme, entre reprises furibardes, ballades au piano et rock’n’roll en sueur. Au fil des ans, le Cave s’est fait de plus en plus crooner, entre un Frank Sinatra punk et un Johnny Cash austère...

Norah Jones en 10 chansons

Même si ses albums paraissent sur le label Blue Note, Norah Jones n’a jamais été vraiment jazz. Comme elle n’a jamais vraiment été pop, ni folk, country ou soul… Depuis le début des années 2000, la chanteuse et pianiste américaine a toujours tout fait pour flouter, voire éradiquer les frontières stylistiques au profit de sa propre musique apatride, qu’elle adore partager avec d’autres musiciens venus d’horizons divers. Petit tour de son monde en 10 titres.
