The Songs of Distant Earth blend together two motifs crafted through Mike Oldfield's atmospheric music. (Both outer space and inner space under water) are the themes of this album, but Oldfield's synthesized artistry comes up short during the course of the 17 tracks, mainly because of the intermittent talking and unnecessary vocabulary that quickly becomes irksome and ineffective. About the music, it is usually Mike Oldfield's differentiation of rhythms or styles on a song to song basis that makes his music thought-provoking and fresh. On this album, the same rhythm lurks through half of the songs, with only smidgens of add-on instrumentation to elevate its flow. Absent is the freewheeling percussion pulses, or the onslaught of strings that so often shower his music. Instead, each track seems flat as his keyboard work comes off gray and bland. Even a few sudden bursts of tempo become short lived, as the pace always falls back to its straight-lined origin. Inspired by Arthur C. Clarke, Oldfield tries to capture the wonder and mystery of the stars and the sea through washes of synthesizer, but his attempt at capturing both themes could have benefited from a multitude of other instruments, as his work usually includes.

My Bloody Valentine, eine Reise nach Innen

30 Jahre nach seiner Veröffentlichung ist "Loveless" von My Bloody Valentine immer noch das verrückteste Album der 90er Jahre. Die elektrische Klangskulptur in Form einer Wall of Sound, die Kevin Shields überschäumende Fantasie hervorbrachte, hat die Rockgeschichte auf den Kopf gestellt und ist bis heute für unzählige Musiker aller Genres ein wichtiges Vorbild.

Nebraska - wenn Bruce Springsteen sich auszieht

1982 überrascht der Boss auf dem Höhepunkt seines gigantischen Erfolgs die ganze Welt mit "Nebraska" - einem 100%igen Akustik-Album, das durch Reinheit und Finesse besticht. Ein zeitloses Meisterwerk voll Echo und Nachhall. Eine Platte, die Geschichten Amerikas erzählt und die Viele für seine größte halten.

MTV: Video Killed the Radio Star

Seit dem allerersten Video – zu "Video Killed the Radio Star" von den Buggles –, das am 1. August 1981 um Mitternacht ausstrahlt wurde, etablierte sich MTV in den 1980er und 90er Jahren als treibende Kraft in der Musikszene. MTV unterstützte One-Hit-Wonder, ließ manche Karrieren wiederaufleben (und stempelte andere als Versager ab) und machte aus Bands, die vom Radio weitgehend ignoriert worden waren, Superstars. Anlässlich des 40-jährigen Jubiläums des Senders werfen wir einen Blick zurück auf die Songs, die MTV in seinen Anfangsjahren beliebt gemacht hatten.
