Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

Transformer and "Walk on the Wild Side" were both major hits in 1972, to the surprise of both Lou Reed and the music industry, and with Reed suddenly a hot commodity, he used his newly won clout to make the most ambitious album of his career, Berlin. Berlin was the musical equivalent of a drug-addled kid set loose in a candy store; the album's songs, which form a loose story line about a doomed romance between two chemically fueled bohemians, were fleshed out with a huge, boomy production (Bob Ezrin at his most grandiose) and arrangements overloaded with guitars, keyboards, horns, strings, and any other kitchen sink that was handy (the session band included Jack Bruce, Steve Winwood, Aynsley Dunbar, and Tony Levin). And while Reed had often been accused of focusing on the dark side of life, he and Ezrin approached Berlin as their opportunity to make The Most Depressing Album of All Time, and they hardly missed a trick. This all seemed a bit much for an artist who made such superb use of the two-guitars/bass/drums lineup with the Velvet Underground, especially since Reed doesn't even play electric guitar on the album; the sheer size of Berlin ultimately overpowers both Reed and his material. But if Berlin is largely a failure of ambition, that sets it apart from the vast majority of Reed's lesser works; Lou's vocals are both precise and impassioned, and though a few of the songs are little more than sketches, the best -- "How Do You Think It Feels," "Oh, Jim," "The Kids," and "Sad Song" -- are powerful, bitter stuff. It's hard not to be impressed by Berlin, given the sheer scope of the project, but while it earns an A for effort, the actual execution merits more of a B-. ~ Mark Deming

J.J. Cale und sein abgeklärter Blues

Auch mehr als fünf Jahre nach J.J. Cales Tod ist es unmöglich, von seiner Musik abzulassen. Er, der von Clapton verehrt wurde, verbrachte einen Teil seines Lebens in einem Mobilheim, und auch heute noch gilt er mit seiner atypischen Kombination aus Blues, Folk, Country und Jazz als einer der einflussreichsten Außenseiter des Rock.

Know your Lemmy

Am 24. Dezember wäre Lemmy Kilmister 74 Jahre alt geworden, und mehr als 40 davon hat er als Bandleader von Motörhead verbracht, der lautesten Rock-Gruppe, die es je gegeben hat. Eine vernichtende Krebskrankheit hat ihn schließlich verstummen lassen. Er war eine Ikone, die man für unsterblich hielt, da sein Ableben unzählige Male verlautbart und dann gleich widerlegt wurde. Mit ihm wurde logischerweise auch das Ende von Motörhead besiegelt, jener Gruppe, die vier Jahrzehnte lang alle möglichen Höhen und Tiefen erlebt hatte. Und vor allem viele Missverständnisse, und vom mächtigen Klang, der von der Bühne donnerte, ganz zu schweigen…

Betty Davis, die Funk-Furie

Ohne sie würde es weder Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse noch Janelle Monáe geben! Betty Davis ist zwar seit Jahren von der Bildfläche verschwunden, aber sie gilt noch immer als Pionierin unter den unkonventionellen Soul Sisters. Als Funk-Göttin schlechthin. Sie war es auch, die Miles Davis’ Energie als seine vorübergehende Ehefrau freisetzte. Betty, wer bist du eigentlich?
