When he brought out At Least For Now, Benjamin Clementine made an entrance that was mad as hell and at the same time very much reserved. The vocals were deep. Well-trained. Almost warlike. The young Brit proved that he had, above all else, one hell of a voice. It was a voice worthy of Nina Simone, to whom he was quickly compared. A strong personality behind a tightly-controlled piano, who impressed and took one's breath away. This first album was a solid, demanding effort, especially in terms of the musical styles whose boundaries it confounded with a sweep of the hand. Jazz, soul, folk, blues, classical or pop, Benjamin Clementine doesn't discriminate, preferring to play a stateless kind of music, alternating between the nudity of a simple piano and the fulsomeness of a violin section. No less mercurial, I Tell a Fly is if anything even harder to define. More theatrical than before, this is a record that takes the world by storm - an album solidly on top of its game. In short, a work of its time interwoven with timeless instruments. On Jupiter, Clementine surfs on a relaxed pop, whereas on One Awkward Fish, he lets loose, mixing the sound of a harpsichord with funky, minimalist drums. That's just one of the many wide strides that mark out this album. Demanding, and above all stunning. © MD/Qobuz

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

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.
