When Sade released Diamond Life in their native U.K., they were already a kind of sensation. The band had scored hits with their first singles, the smoldering Top Ten ballad "Your Love Is King" and the perseverant soul anthem "When Am I Going to Make a Living," both of which only faintly resembled anything else on the chart. Magazines such as The Face and Smash Hits had published cover features, intensifying anticipation for the album. Diamond Life not only distanced Sade farther outside any context in which they were placed, whether it was the sulking sophisti-pop fraternity or the increasingly mechanized realm of contemporary R&B, but also fulfilled the promise of the singles that preceded it. Rhythms that sensitively ripple and pulse at their most active, topped with deceptively cool vocals from Sade Adu -- all coated with a luster -- have a way of obscuring the depth of the material to casual listeners. "Smooth Operator," the first in a series of sketches about various characters, regards a jet-setting playboy who leaves his conquests as amnesiacs and (much like the band) "moves in space with minimal waste." Elsewhere is the turnabout tale "Frankie's First Affair," where Adu's disappointment with the protagonist verges on anguish, and the grim "Sally," a nickname/metaphor for the Salvation Army, sheltering broken men ruined by addiction and poverty. Adu breaks from third-person narratives with "Cherry Pie," lamenting the loss of a lover who was "as wild as Friday night." When Adu belts "You broke my heart!" it's but one of many lines expressed with enough purpose and force to invalidate the belief that she is an aloof performer. A sinewy and compatible cover of Timmy Thomas' 1972 hit "Why Can't We Live Together" affirms that Sade are indeed soul aesthetes concerned with more than creating a mood and projecting glamour.

Neo-Soul in 10 Alben

Mitte der 90er Jahre, als der Hip-Hop sein goldenes Zeitalter erlebte, begann auch der Soul seine Revolution. Mit Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Jill Scott und einigen anderen gewinnt das Genre die Klasse, Nüchternheit und Raffinesse zurück, die die Alben von Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield oder Roberta Flack belebt haben. Nach den Jahren der ultrakommerziellen sirupartigen R&B-Herrschaft belebt der Neo-Soul (oder auch Nu-Soul), der viel mehr Underground war, die Flamme des ursprünglichen Soul, in seinen Arrangements wie in seinen Texten. Eine kleine aber sehr einflussreiche Bewegung.

Aretha Franklin, die Königin von Atlantic

Zwischen 1967 und 1979 hat Aretha Franklin ihre größten Alben für das Label Atlantic Records aufgenommen. Diese Alben sind vom Gospel ihrer Kindheit geprägt und definieren, eingehüllt in Rhythm’n’Blues, die Konturen des modernen Soul neu.

Weihnachten in 15 Alben

Sie haben keinen besonders guten Ruf. Oft werden sie unter Musikkritikern verpönt und doch werden sie von aller Welt gehört. Diese besondere Spezies der Weihnachtsalben sprießt jedes Jahr von den bekanntesten und renommiertesten Künstlern aus dem Boden. Die ersten Pop-Weihnachtstlieder, die keinen kirchlichen Bezug mehr aufwiesen, entstanden um 1934 aus Kinderliedern, wie etwa Santa Claus Is Coming to Town von Fred Coots und Haven Gillespie, das 1935 von Tommy Dorsey und seinem Orchester aufgezeichnet wurde. Mit den Croonern kamen die ersten LPs auf, die eine Sammlung an mehreren Songs für die Festtage vereinten. Hier ist eine Auswahl an Alben, die wir mit größter Sorgfalt für Sie auserlesen haben und die Ihnen die Weihnachtszeit in diesem Jahr ganz besonders schön machen soll...
