Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

Agnes Obel's striking success in her home country of Denmark with her debut is all the more remarkable given how understated Philharmonics is as a listen, a seemingly straightforward piano/vocal album that isn't. Combining a strong ear for immediate appeal -- Obel's deep singing voice is lovely and her ear for a calm hook is crucial -- with a feeling of just-unsettled-enough unease is key. Part of it lies in Obel's ear for vocal arrangements; hearing her own overdubbed harmonies showcases her talents further, both as performer and producer. But there's something that's not trying to be straightforward here. There's an elegant, slipping darkness that creeps in around the corners, like something is being hidden in plain sight. The short instrumental "Falling, Catching" starts off the album on a sweet note -- perhaps sickly sweet, there's something so strangely focused in its intensity that it almost unsettles. Her first vocal provides a bit of necessary contrast on "Riverside" immediately thereafter, but at the same time further showcases how gently unusual Philharmonics ends up being -- it may not be Patty Waters, say, but it's not Vanessa Carlton or KT Tunstall either. The underpinning bass part on the cover of John Cale's "I Keep a Close Watch" set against the high intensity of the lead piano gives a good personal stamp to a standard, but it's her subtle variety throughout the album that impresses even more. There's "Avenue"'s music-box-meets-near-film-noir-jazz on the one hand, while "Louretta," another short instrumental, has a controlled theatricality that seems like it should soundtrack a Neil Gaiman ballet. "On Powdered Ground" has a gentler sweetness that feels like a slight respite toward the end, but Philharmonics in general aims for the darkly beautiful and succeeds on an unexpected level. ~ Ned Raggett

Britpop in 10 Alben

“Wenn das Ziel des Punk war, die Hippies loszuwerden, dann ist unseres, dem Grunge ein Ende zu bereiten.” Als Damon Albarn mit diesem Satz 1993 ganz England einen kräftigen Schlag versetzt, nimmt es wieder seinen Platz auf dem musikalischen Spielfeld ein, das von Seattle mit dem Grunge und Nirvana besetzt war. Der britische Pop, der eng mit dem politischen Geschehen verbunden ist, entdeckt das Tageslicht genau zu der Zeit, als Tony Blair und seine New Labour Party die Bühne betreten. Die englische Romantik wird gegenüber der amerikanischen wieder attraktiv, da diese häufig als zu hohl bezeichnet wird. Bühne frei für “Cool Britannia”.

Destination Mond: The Dark Side of the Moon

Das Flaggschiff der Diskografie von Pink Floyd, "The Dark Side of the Moon", ist das Ergebnis eines relativ langen Arbeitsprozesses, der beinahe bis 1968 zurückreicht. Für Nick Mason hat alles mit dem Album "A Saucerful of Secrets" begonnen. Danach folgte die Platte "Ummagumma", auf der die verschiedenen Persönlichkeiten sich ausdrücken und zusammenschließen konnten. Pink Floyd setzten ihre Suche nach dem idealen Album anschließend mit "Meddle" (mit dem die Band abermals unter Beweis stellte, wie sehr sie die Arbeit im Studios meistert) und "Atom Heart Mother" fort, bevor sie mit "The Dark Side of the Moon" ein Nirwana erreichen, dessen Perfektion auch 45 Jahre nach seiner Veröffentlichung nicht verblasst ist.​

Kraftwerk – 50 Jahre Vorsprung

Kraftwerk – einflussreichste Elektromusik-Gruppe der Geschichte – waren ihrer Zeit immer schon weit voraus. Und das betrifft sowohl die Technologie als auch die Komposition und die Performances. Die Deutschen bewiesen damit dem breiten Publikum, dass auch Maschinen Gefühle auslösen können und bereiteten der Techno, der New Wave und sogar dem Hip-Hop den Weg.
