The Smashing Pumpkins waste no time. Billy Corgan and his reformed band are back together after releasing the very short Shiny & Oh So Bright Vol.1 in 2018, their first album in 18 years. Cyr is conceived as its follow-up and we notice from its sleeve that it is once again produced by the studio TNSN DVSN. Still, from the Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness era, only drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist James Iha are back, bassist D’arcy Wretzky is still yet to reconcile with the tyrannic Corgan. At it seems they never will. While the reformed band’s work produced by Rick Rubin revives their golden age of alternative rock, Cyr also embraces a fresher pop sound for one simple reason.


“I got sick of making music that people kept telling me didn’t sound contemporary.”, explains the frontman. In this twenty track double album, Corgan accentuates the synths and feminine choirs. At the beginning, we are reminded of the Canadian band TR/ST with Sulk and its dark pop sound and hammered kick drums. This formula is repeated (which may weary some) but is switched up on Wyttch and its heavy guitars, the organ on Save Your Tears and the chiaroscuro Purple Blood. This unique double album, the opposite of the best-selling one sold in the 90s, proves (if it can continue) that Billy Corgan is best when surrounded by the Pumpkins. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Queen: A Balanced Band

The film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which was screening in cinemas in October 2018, is a reminder of what Freddie Mercury would always say: Queen isn’t just about him, it’s about a band of four exceptional individuals. This is exactly what Brian May and Roger Taylor (without John Deacon, who retired) have been trying to demonstrate since the death of their flamboyant singer on November 21, 1991.

The Doors, Jim Morrison’s Orchestra

Fifty years ago, on 3 July 1971, Jim Morrison died mysteriously in a Parisian bathtub, survived by his three partners: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, who had worked tirelessly for six years to translate his dreams into music.
