Don McLean's second album, American Pie, which was his first to gain recognition after the negligible initial sales of 1970's Tapestry, is necessarily dominated by its title track, a lengthy, allegorical history of rock & roll, because it became an unlikely hit, topping the singles chart and putting the LP at number one as well. "American Pie" has remained as much a cultural touchstone as a song, sung by everyone from Garth Brooks to Madonna, its title borrowed for a pair of smutty teen comedies, while the record itself has earned a registered three-million plays on U.S. radio stations. There may not be much more to note about it, then, except perhaps that even without a crib sheet to identify who's who, the song can still be enjoyed for its engaging melody and singable chorus, which may have more to do with its success than anything else. Of course, the album also included "Vincent," McLean's paean to Van Gogh, which has been played two-million times. Nothing else on the album is as effective as the hits, but the other eight original songs range from sensitive fare like "Till Tomorrow" to the sarcastic, uptempo "Everybody Loves Me, Baby." American Pie -- the album -- is very much a record of its time; it is imbued with the vague depression of the early '70s that infected the population and found expression in the works of singer/songwriters. "American Pie" -- the song -- is really a criticism of what happened in popular music in the '60s, and "Vincent" sympathizes with Van Gogh's suicide as a sane comment on an insane world. "Crossroads" and "Empty Chairs" are personal reflections full of regret and despondency, with the love song "Winterwood" providing the only respite. In the album's second half, the songs get more portentous, tracing society's ills into war and spiritual troubles in "The Grave" and "Sister Fatima." The songs are made all the more poignant by the stately folk-pop arrangements and McLean's clear, direct tenor. It was that voice, equally effective on remakes of pop oldies, that was his salvation when he proved unable to match the songwriting standard set on Tapestry and this collection. But then, the album has an overall elegiac quality that makes it sound like a final statement. After all, if the music has died, what else is there to say?

Der Grunge in 10 Alben

Vor dreißig Jahren wurde Seattle zu DER Hauptstadt des Rock. Dies lag am Grunge. Dieser “schmutzige” Stil und diese “Scheiß drauf”-Einstellung, die den Spuren des Punk, Heavy Metal und Alternativ folgte, schlug wie ein Blitz in den Underground ein und wurde zu einem Welterfolg. In den 90er Jahren erstickte dieses Genre, das von einem System zu schnell verneint wurde, in seiner eigenen Karikatur. Ein Rückblick auf zehn repräsentative Alben.

Guns N' Roses: Der Zweck heiligt die Mittel

Die Verkaufszahlen des legendären Appetite For Destruction nähern sich in den USA der 20-Millionengrenze. Weiß jedoch heute noch jemand, dass das Album beinahe überhaupt nicht erschienen wäre? Zwischen Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin und Steven Adler gab es nicht nur dauernd Unstimmigkeiten, sondern das Schicksal schien dieser Gruppe ununterbrochen auf den Fersen zu sein, die – verglichen mit Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella oder Dokken – wohl in allen Dingen zu spät dran war. David Geffens hatte mehr oder weniger aus Mitleid eingewilligt, dieser Gruppe von Obdachlosen bei seinem Label Unterschlupf zu bieten. Seinen Altruismus sollte er dann aber nicht bereuen…

Betty Davis, die Funk-Göttin

Ohne sie würde es weder Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse noch Janelle Monáe geben! Betty Davis hat zwar unsere Erde verlassen, aber sie gilt weiterhin als Pionierin unter den unkonventionellen Soul Sisters. Als Funk-Göttin schlechthin. Sie war auch diejenige, die Miles Davis’ Energie als seine vorübergehende Ehefrau freisetzte. Betty, wer bist du eigentlich?
