One of the more rare and odder items in the Prince discography, The Versace Experience: Prelude 2 Gold was intended as a promotional cassette to be distributed at the Versace runway show at Paris Fashion Week in July 1995. The event was held a mere two months before the September release of The Gold Experience, and the cassette was designed to promote the new record without undercutting it. The album has exclusive remixes of three of the four singles from The Gold Experience -- "Eye Hate U," "Gold," and "P Control," with the actual hit "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" left off, likely because it was over a year old at that point -- and they ground an album that runs swiftly through excerpts of album tracks, snippets of songs from both the New Power Generation and Madhouse, half-formed instrumentals, and Prince gravely intoning "Versace" at random moments. With its Public Enemy samples, fashion fetishism, loopy funk, and smooth soul, The Versace Experience is very much an artifact of its time, and while the period flair makes it interesting, it's only mildly interesting. At its core, The Versace Experience is a promo tape, designed to hype an album that had yet to hit stores. Listening to it decades after the promotional cycle came to a close relegates it to little more than a curiosity. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Tim Burton en 10 albums

Qu’il tourne en prises de vues réelles ou en stop motion, Tim Burton a construit en plus de trente ans un monde cinématographique où le merveilleux poétique côtoie le gothique et l’humour macabre. À quelques exceptions près, c’est le compositeur Danny Elfman qui l’a épaulé dans cette aventure, formant un duo symbiotique : sans les images de Burton, la musique de Elfman n’aurait pas la même saveur et vice versa, ce qu’ils ont encore prouvé en 2019 avec le bouleversant “Dumbo”.

La nu soul en 10 albums

Au milieu des 90’s, alors que le hip-hop vit son âge d’or, la soul entame aussi sa révolution. Avec Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Jill Scott et quelques autres, le genre retrouve la classe, la sobriété et le raffinement qui animaient les albums de Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield ou Roberta Flack. Après les années de règne du R&B sirupeux ultra-commercial, la nu soul, nettement plus underground, ravive la flame de la soul originelle, dans ses arrangements comme dans ses textes. Un mouvement bref mais hautement influent.

Philly Sound, un nœud pap sur le funk

Ni Motown ! Ni Stax ! La soul de Philadelphie proposera une troisième voix bien à elle. Concocté par la paire Kenny Gamble et Leon Huff, ce genre précurseur du disco fait danser l’Amérique du début des années 70 en la plongeant dans la soie et le champagne.
